Daniel Radcliffe is not your average teenage idol. While he’s not playing the beloved boy-wizard Harry Potter, he’s prancing around the stage naked in a play about a young guy in love with a horse. Now Daniel Radcliffe tells Details magazine in its October 2008 issue that he aspires to play a drag queen in the future.
“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,” Daniel Radcliffe confessed to Details.
But Radcliffe noted that he uses his art to express his wild side, instead of being rebellious in the more traditional way.
“I don’t pretend to do anything particularly wild. People talk about rebellion and they 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,” Daniel Radcliffe explained. “I just like wrong-footing people. I write poetry and I love it. I like being different from most other people in my generation.”
