On set with Daniel Radcliffe

Fresh of the hit thriller The Woman in Black, Radcliffe, 22, is taking on a counterculture icon. He’s playing beat poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings, now filming in New York City. The film explores the relationship between young literary starts-to-be Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs and the circumstances surrounding the 1944 murder of an associate.

Are you a Ginsberg fan?
Daniel Radcliffe:
The more I learned, the more I liked him. There’s unbelievable sweetness and compassion between him and Burroughs and Kerouac. His work was like an explosion.

Are you a poet yourself?
Daniel Radcliffe:
I write sonnets, couplets and things like that. The poetry I write is pretty structured and rhyming, but I’d like to think it’s honest and interesting.

Ginsberg did a lot of LSD. Were you tempted?
Daniel Radcliffe:
LSD would not do well for me. I’ve talked to a lot of people who’ve done a lot of LSD – and I know I would have a terrible time. I’m not tempted.

Ginsberg was gay. How are the love scenes?
Daniel Radcliffe:
There was no discomfort. There have been moments when Dane [DeHaan], the object of my affection in the film, and I did start giggling.

How will Harry Potter fans react to this movie?
Daniel Radcliffe:
Well, they were comfortable with Equus, and that had me simulating sex on the back of a horse, so this is a walk in the park.
