Daniel Radcliffe may just become the actor who will always be known first by his screen name thanks to his role as Harry Potter. After starring in eight films of the Harry Potter series, Radcliffe has been trying hard to take on projects that prove he's beyond the fictional magical world. Currently, the actor is shooting in Adelaide, Australia for his upcoming film Escape from Pretoria. Set in 1978, pre-apartheid era Daniel will be seen in the role of Tim Jenkin, the real-life white South African activist who was imprisoned on the brutal Pretoria Prison for working with the African National Congress. In a few photos that have now been posted all over social media, Daniel is seen in an unrecognizable look.
Sporting a blue buttoned shirt and grey trousers along with oversized glasses, Radcliffe's transformation has taken the fans by surprise. With his long hair and bearded look, the Swiss Army Man star is completely different from what we have seen so far. He has been in majority of his roles been seen as the boy-next-door and this is certainly a first.
