Actor Daniel Radcliffe has described his role in Horns as the most “emotionally intense” character he has ever played.
The fantasy-thriller is based on the cult novel by Joe Hill and is directed by Alexandre Aja. Daniel Radcliffe will play Ig Perrish in the movie, who is accused of violently raping and killing his girlfriend. Ig awakes one morning to find horns growing from his head and diabolical powers at his command.
“He’s a good person who has something inexplicable and terrifying happen to him. Ig’s anger is a lot more on display than any character I’ve played. The way he lashes out at the world is much more overt than I’ve done before. And I think, frankly, it’s one of the most emotionally intense characters I’ve ever played,” Radcliffe said.
