Daniel Radcliffe has confessed his character in The F Word is the closest he has ever played to his real self.
The 24-year-old actor grew up on screen playing Harry Potter, and is known throughout the world as the adventurous boy wizard.
In new indie romcom The F Word, Daniel plays the awkward Wallace, who becomes friends with a girl who is already in a relationship, and becomes confused between love and friendship.
Daniel revealed at the Toronto Film Festival: "I definitely think that this is the first time in anything that I've done that I've been allowed to let a lot more of my own personality come through.
"And to be honest, what comes across as awkwardness isn't really me feeling awkward, it's me just stuttering a lot. It's not that I feel awkward, it's just that I look awkward, if that makes sense.
Co-star Zoe Kazan added: "I think what you're calling awkward is just that it isn't polished. We were trying to go for a very real version of a romantic comedy. We wanted to feel like people you know in your life, and not airbrushed - personalities and faces and everything."
Daniel added: "We were told it was going to be very, very cold, and it was freezing the day before, and so we were dreading it, but we did luck out on a nice warm night, and it was a lot better than we expected. But now I'm angry because I've just found out I've been poisoned!"
