Actor Daniel Radcliffe, who has played the boy wizard in Harry Potter films, has now grown up and is saying good bye to teenage roles after the last installment of Harry Potter series. The Hollywood star is set to play a father and widower in his next movie Woman in Black. Now, he is bit worried that his Harry Potter fans will have a hard time accepting him.

Daniel Radcliffe plays Arthur Kipps in the film Woman in Black. Kipps is a young lawyer, who is ordered to travel to a remote corner of 1930's England to deal with a recently deceased client's papers. But he soon grows uneasy when he learns the local village is held hostage by the ghost of a scorned woman set on revenge.

The Harry Potter stars says that saying goodbye to teenage is very sad, but it is inevitable. "You know, it is weird but when it's become such a part of your life, it feels almost the same as saying goodbye to your teenage years and it is very sad but it is also an inevitability," the Daily Telegraph quoted Radcliffe as saying on the UK set of his new movie.

"And yeah, while I had an amazing time, ten years is enough to spend with one character. I loved every second of it but I'm excited about moving on more than scared or upset. I think it's one of the great challenges to get people to buy me as something else. [I'm playing a] father and widower, two things I don't have direct experience of," he added.
