Daniel Radcliffe goes all mean and moody as he swaps Harry Potter for Hammer Horror.

The actor, famed for his lengthy stint as the boy wizard, has been pictured during the first day of shooting on his latest project The Woman In Black.

The spooky period drama is being made by the revived British horror movie firm Hammer and scripted by Jonathan Ross's wife, Jane Goldman.

The 21-year-old was spotted in Victorian dress as he started work in his role as lawyer Arthur Kipps, filming just outside Peterborough.

In the film he stars as a young solicitor who is sent to a remote spot to sort out a client's affairs following their death.

During his stay he is increasingly haunted by a mysterious ghostly figure, with local villagers unwilling to explain the significance of her appearance.

Filming on the production will continue until December around the UK.

Daniel finished filming his final scenes in the Potter series in the summer, with the final Deathly Hallows title to be split into two parts. They will be released in November and in July of next year.
