With no wand, cloak or broomstick in sight, the 21-year-old is suddenly looking decidedly grown-up in his new role, complete with tie, waistcoat and a spot of manly stubble.

Oh, and not forgetting the rather large axe…

In his first big screen venture since the Harry Potter franchise finished filming, Daniel plays the role of Arthur Kipps – a young solicitor who travels to rural England in order to deal with a recently deceased client’s paperwork, only to discover the vengeful ghost of a woman awaiting him.

An adaptation of the successful novel and stage thriller, the film is directed by James Watkin, with the screenplay written by Jane Goldman – and currently due to hit cinemas in October this year.

‘I am incredibly excited to be part of The Woman in Black,’ Daniel said in a recent interview.

‘Jane Goldman’s script is beautifully written – both tender and terrifying in equal measure.’
