Daniel Radcliffe is definitely growing up fast. Radcliffe is best known as "The Boy Who Lived" in the worldwide wizard phenomenon "Harry Potter". However, for Radcliffe's acting stint for the music video Beginners by Slow Club, Daniel now goes by the name, "Deathly Drunkard".
Apparently, there is a reason as to why Daniel had chosen portray the booze-driven man in the UK band's music video. Daniel was a drunkard himself during his early film career with "Harry Potter". In fact, Daniel was too reliant on booze during the filming of "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince". The British actor says all in an interview with MTV News July of last year.
"I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff," says Radcliffe, adding, "I really got away with that because there were many instances when a paparazzi shot like that could have been taken."
Thankfully, Daniel has moved on from dark times and is now making a laugh out of it by starring as one in Slow Club's official music video for "Beginners". Wearing a red Hawaiian polo shirt, Radcliffe hilariously lip-syncs to Slow Club's song while getting drunk in a pub and completely blacking out. Parts of the video are set in the pub, Faltering Fullback in London's Finsbury Park.
Daniel is not the only "Harry Potter" star to have acted in a music video. Rupert Grint played the funny and entirely creepy stalker in the video "Lego House" by Ed Sheeran. Emma Watson also did her take in a music video for One Night Only's' "Say You Don't Want It".
Booze isn't the only thing taking up Daniel Radcliffe's time. The 22-year old is set to release a film this year entitled "Kill Your Darlings" plus a few rumored projects namely "Pinocchio" and "A Young Doctor's Notebook". Radcliffe's other co-stars, Emma and Rupert are also busy with their individual film careers. Watson is set to star in the highly-anticipated film adaptation of Stephen Chbosky's best-selling book, "Perks of Being a Wallflower". On the other hand, Grint is to voice the movie of "Postman Pat" and is currently filming "The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman".
The kids have surely grown up and are ready to continue their take on the world, even if it includes a few drunk takes.
