Daniel Radcliffe transforms into Tim Jenkin for the upcoming film Escape from Pretoria.
The actor looked unrecognizable while in costume playing Tim Jenkins; a white South African activist imprisoned for working with the African National Congress and then breaking out of the brutal Pretoria Central Prison.
Radcliffe was photographed on set wearing a blue long-sleeve shirt, grey slacks, and black shoes. He was sporting a 70’s hairstyle, a full beard, and square sunglasses for his role.
IN FULL CHARACTER: Daniel was filming an intense scene where he is a fugitive hiding from the law. He was pictured walking on the streets of Adelaide looking a bit distraught and hiding behind a pile of trash.
The Pirie Street in Adelaide, Australia was transformed into 1970’s Cape Town where the timepiece takes place with vintage vehicles and storefront showing signs in Afrikaans.
CATCHING A BREAK: Daniel was seen enjoying a hand-rolled cigarette as he filmed and later took a break from filming. He looked to be in deep conversation with members of the film crew as he puffed away on his smoke.
The Harry Potter actor is a far cry from the squeaky clean boy he once played, opting for meatier roles like that of Tim Jenkin that will gain him recognition instead of millions of fans.
