Not one to be typecasted in a tween role, "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe reveals that his dream role is to play a drag queen.
The English film and stage actor looks very manly and more matured than his 19 years as he poses on the cover of Details magazine’s October issue, wherein he confesses his dream of wearing a dress. He tells the publication, "I think part of me would love to play a drag queen. Just because It would be an excuse to wear loads of eye makeup."
Radcliffe, whose film works mainly consists of the "Harry Potter" franchise, has been careful to leave his boy wizard persona when he is off-screen. He says, "Whenever I can I want to leave Harry there on the screen. I don’t want to bring him into my normal life."
Perhaps that’s also why he chose to star in a racy, albeit critically acclaimed, stage production "Equus," wherein he has to appear completely nude in one scene. He hasn’t exactly been leading a normal teenage life, but that’s okay for him saying that he doesn’t "pretend to do anything particularly wild," addressing reports about his relatively quiet personal life.
He says, "People talk about rebellion and the say, ‘Where is the teenage angst?’ But I say I try to do it simply by the choices I make in the work I do. I just like wrong-footing people. I write poetry and I love it." "I like being different from most other people in my generation." Source
