Behind the scenesDaniel Radcliffe playing a demon? Director Alexandre Aja explains his tough casting call
If you’re looking for someone to play a man turning into a demon, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe may not be the first name that comes to mind.
But French director Alexandre Aja was seeking the right star to carry his adaptation of Horns, a fantasy horror novel by Joe Hill and turned to Radcliffe.
“Daniel has that amazing power to carry the audience by the hand into a twisted world, but never lose them. He represents something that’s kind, accessible and familiar for so many millions of people around the world. He will bring that relatability: if Daniel Radcliffe/Harry Potter can turn into the devil, I can see myself going through the same journey.”
Horns is out in October.
