Like his most famous character, Daniel Radcliffe graduated in 2012. Free from the Harry Potter franchise after eight blockbusting movies, everybody wanted to know what he was going to do next.
What he did was scare the pants off us. With book adap The Woman In Black, he delivered his most mature performance yet as widower Arthur Kipps. The film stayed with us for weeks and Radcliffe set out his ambitions in full – he’s not going to play this one safe.
Sticking to that, he’s spent the remainder of 2012 filming roles in incredibly diverse projects, from donning horns for, er, Horns to playing gay poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings (pictured above). Both are due out next year; 2013 can’t come quickly enough.
