Ahead of ‘Victor Frankenstein’ Daniel Radcliffe told he must use accent

While the new Frankenstein film is not arriving until the fall, fans will be pleased to hear from Victor Frankenstein co-star Daniel Radcliffe. The Harry Potter star was advised to use the English accent or he wouldn’t be marketable.

Speaking to the Sunday Express magazine S, he said: “It was basically: ‘You’re not marketable without your English accent,’ which is bad news for all the other stuff I’ve done with American accents.”

So, not everyone wants Radcliffe to escape the Harry Potter characteristics.

“It was one of those ridiculous last-minute panics on their behalf, but I certainly wasn’t going to go: ‘Well, screw you guys, I’m going to put 200 people out of work for the sake of an accent’.”

Daniel, 25, now living in New York, reveals that there has been some action roles which he has passed on:

“A couple of quite good action films have come my way,” he added.

“But there’s never a fresh character involved in any of those films. It’s just the same people thrown into different cities with different casts.

“I like action movies and I feel there used to be lots of really witty ones, like Die Hard and Lethal Weapon and the Bourne movies, but the good ones are few and far between now.”

Radcilffe stars as Igor alongside James McAvoy’s mad scientist in Victor Frankenstein, which arrives in theaters in October.
