In his first post Harry Potter offering, Daniel Radcliffe stars as a young lawyer in The Woman in Black.
Not only did his gothic horror movie wow critics in the U.S., it also took in a whopping $21 million at the box office over opening weekend.
Set in the early 1900’s, this dark tale finds him in investigating an evil haunting from a vengeful ghost terrorizing a small town.
Over the years, we’ve seen the Harry Potter star mature — and became of drinking age. The actor recently admitted that while filming the later movies in the series, he was actually drunk! He told Heat magazine:
“I can honestly say I never drank at work on ‘Harry Potter.’ I went into work still drunk, but I never drank at work. I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes.”
