Daniel Radcliffe never throws punches in movies but thinks getting hit is his "specialty"
Daniel Radcliffe "enjoys" being hit.
The 'Victor Frankenstein' actor is "really good" at falling over and making it look like he is being beaten up on screen so has no problem with shooting fight scenes.
He said: "If I joined the circus, undoubtedly I'd be the fall guy in the clown routine.
"I'm really good at falling over and taking hits and, perversely, I enjoy it.
"I'm making it sound as if I'm into bondage and S&M, 'Ooh I love being hit.' "
While being hit is his "speciality", Daniel has rarely had to dole out any punches in his movies.
He said: "Weirdly I haven't had to deliver many punches throughout my career so I'm very good at being beaten and getting hit. That's my speciality."
Daniel found the "emotional" scenes of Victor Frankenstein' much harder to shoot than the action.
He explained: "The final emotional scenes of the film with Igor and Victor were more challenging.
"You put pressure on yourself and think, 'This has to go right'. Because if you don't nail this part, none of the action matters."
