Daniel Radcliffe relished starring in comedy role

Daniel Radcliffe relished starring in ‘Miracle Workers’ because he wanted to showcase his comedic talents.

The 29-year-old actor is best-known for appearing in the money-spinning ‘Harry Potter’ franchise, but Daniel was excited to star in the new TV series because he enjoyed the challenge of playing a comedic role.

He said: "A lot of what I watch and what I grew up watching was comedy.

"I’ve done comedy onstage, so some people have seen me do it. But not for an audience this wide. So I was really excited to try and show that side of myself as an actor."

Daniel also claimed his experience of theatre acting has helped him to become a more well-rounded performer.

He told the New York Post newspaper: "Theatre makes me a better actor every time I do it."

Meanwhile, Rupert Grint – Daniel’s former ‘Harry Potter’ co-star – previously likened leaving the franchise to "stepping out of an institution".

Rupert, 30 – who starred as Ron Weasley in the film series – admitted to being somewhat relieved to leave the role behind in 2011, when ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2’ was released.

He confessed: "The line between Ron and me became thinner with each film and I think we became virtually the same person.

"There’s a lot of me in Ron and moving on was a massive adjustment because it was such a constant part of my life.

"I don’t want to liken it to coming out of prison because it wasn’t a prison, but it did feel like stepping out of an institution. It was nice to breathe the fresh air and now I’m really enjoying stepping further away from that blue-screen world."
