Daniel Radcliffe scores with critics

Filed under: Celeb Kids, That's Entertainment

Yesterday I wrote about Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe's controversial appearance in a London revival of "Equus." The play premiered last night, and critics are giving Radcliffe's performance two thumbs up.

The Daily Telegraph described Radcliffe as "brilliant" and praised his "unexpected range and depth." The Daily Mail lauded "the emergence of young Dan Radcliffe in the artistic raw, tested as an actor and found equal to the stretching role."

The audience agreed, giving Radcliffe and his fellow cast members a standing ovation at the end of the performance.

Radcliffe himself told a Reuters reporter, "It would have been very easy to just do a very similar performance for your entire career. Half the excitement of stepping up to do a new role was thinking God I might not be able to do this but I am going to give it a go," he said.

Good for him.
