Naked wizard Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe will appear naked twice in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'

Daniel Radcliffe will bare all twice in the next 'Harry Potter' movie.

The actor - who has previously stripped for his part in stage production 'Equus', both in London and New York - will stun fans when he gets close to Emma Watson's character Hermione Granger during a fantasy sequence in 'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows'.

Director David Yates revealed: "Daniel has appeared nude in the past. There are a couple of scenes in the new film in which he will undress but we're still thinking about how we present it."

The scene occurs when Harry's best friend and Hermione's love interest Ron Weasley, played by Rupert Grint, is battling a monster which tries to defend itself by flashing a series of images where Harry and Hermione are kissing and embracing."

Daniel will then expose himself in a later scene following a brush with death.

The director added: "There is another scene in Kings Cross station, where Harry almost dies and sees Dumbledore. In that scene he will also be naked."

Daniel, 20, has previously admitted he was surprised by how comfortable he was appearing nude on stage.

He said: "It never really was an issue. I don't know why, it probably should have been. I am terribly self-conscious. Although I remember I did look at my dad once and say, 'Do you think I could wear pants?' "

'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' is being split into two instalments, with the first due for release next year. It is unclear in which parts the nude scenes will appear.
