Daniel Radcliffe On Frankenstein Film: 'Playing Hunchback Has Left Me In Agony'

Posted: Updated:

Daniel Radcliffe has revealed how playing a hunchback has left him in agony and needing Osteopathy sessions.

The 'Harry Potter' star, who has taken on the role of scientist’s assistant Igor in a new Frankenstein film, told The Evening Standard: "I’m having lots of osteopathy— lots of bone-cracking sessions.”

Daniel said his latest role was even more taxing than his part in the hit West End play 'The Cripple of Inishmaan'.

“I went straight from playing [the cripple] to playing a hunchback and the hunchback is much harder," he explained.

Daniel was awarded the Best Actor at the WhatsOnStage Awards on Sunday for his role in the stage show.

The 24-year-old, who has had hair extensions for his role as Igor, spoke to The Telegraph about his new longer locks: "I don't mind how it looks but I mind dealing with it. I don't know why any man would have it voluntarily.

"The amount of work it takes, having to dry it - doing anything to it is a f**king nightmare. I do have a whole new sympathy for women. I wouldn't be growing my hair this long in my own time."
