A new on-set feature for Daniel Radcliffe's The Woman in Black was released in the October issue of Empire magazine, where the actor discussed how he got into the mentality of a widower, which involved reading books on those who had lost loved ones, and portraying a father in Victorian times. New photos of Dan as Arthur Kipps from the issue can be seen here. The full interview with Dan is in the gallery.

“I feel like I’ve landed on my feet with this being the first thing after Harry. Because this is very different, in that I’m playing a father and it’s a more grown-up film, but it’s not so scandalously different that people will say, ‘Oh, he’s just trying too hard; he’s trying to shock us into thinking he’s something else now.’ I think I’ve taken away some of the ammunition people can throw.”

On playing a father:
“I cheated a bit on that. I got my godson to audition to play my son … and he was very good and got the part! I’ve known him since he was a baby and there’s already a chemistry there; there’s a lot of love between us. I got very lucky on that.”
