Daniel Radcliffe denies he will play Freddie Mercury

Thursday September 26, 2013

Daniel Radcliffe has shot down rumours that he will play Freddie Mercury in a biopic about the Queen front man.

"There is no truth to it at all…It's one of those very, very funny things: it came out of a story in the Daily Star  and then you see newspapers like The Guardian using The Star as their source, and it grows and grows" said Daniel. "I am completely wrong for that part."

At the moment the 24-year-old actor is on the promotional trail for his latest film Kill Your Darlings a biopic about Allen Ginsberg in which Daniel plays the title character, the movie is out 6 December.

The Harry Potter star has been very busy lately wrapping up two more films Horns and The F Word and soon will be shooting Frankenstein with James McAvoy.
