Dan's girlfriend The Woman In Black

Daniel Radcliffe has revealed his girlfriend makes a cameo as The Woman In Black in his new film.

The Harry Potter actor stars as widowed lawyer Arthur Kipps in the scary new horror film and revealed girlfriend Rosanne Coker makes an appearance on screen with him.

Daniel said: "There is actually one shot in the film where Rosie had to play the woman in black because we didn't have a double for her that day so she is actually in one of the reveal shots in the film.

"She is going to kill me for telling you that."

Asked if he drew on their relationship for inspiration in playing a widower, he said: "At the time we had been filming this we had only been going out for a couple of months.

"I don't think I probably drew on things at that time, but I am sure now I will probably use them - the fear of losing her will be a very good motivating tool."

The 22-year-old actor said he didn't worry about typecasting. But he did reveal he was delighted to have recently received words of encouragement from Bond star Sir Sean Connery.

He said: "I did hear the other day from a friend of mine, who is friends with Sean Connery, and apparently Sean Connery asked him to pass along to me how well he thought I was doing and how well I seem to be handling everything and making good choices.

"For me, that was great because he is a great actor. He had this amazing start to his career in Bond and managed to create a fantastic career for himself outside that, so to hear that from him was very flattering."
