Radcliffe Takes On Photographer Role

Published on January 01, 2008 with No Comments

Harry PotterĀ star Daniel Radcliffe has fought off competition from Heath Ledger and Orlando Bloom to land the lead role in a new movie about a slain photo-journalist.

The 22-year-old will appear as photographer Dan Eldon in Journey, a film chronicling the civil war in Somalia. Eldon was one of four journalists stoned to death by a mob in the African country in 1993.

And Eldon’s mother Kathy believes Radcliffe was the perfect choice to play her tragic son.

“We resisted a lot of older actors because Dan was a boy emerging into manhood,” she says.

A compilation of Eldon’s diaries – on which the film is based – has sold 200,000 copies since being published in 1997.
