Five Film Facts: 'The Woman in Black'
The Woman in Black Five Film Facts
The 1989 TV movie of "The Woman in Black" has an odd connection to Radcliffe's earlier career. In that version, Adrian Rawlins played the same role that Radcliffe plays in the film version. Rawlins also happens to play Harry Potter's father in seven of the eight films. That's right: two generations of Potters playing the same role! Radcliffe realized the oddity after he had finished work on the final Potter film, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" (2011), and was preparing for this film. "I went online and saw suddenly, yes, Adrian Rawlins's name came up, who was one of the loveliest actors we've ever had on 'Potter,' and he played my dad." Radcliffe said the link was entirely coincidental, but that "it was another bit of kinship we had there."
