Parents infuriated as Daniel Radcliffe strips

The UK's Daily Mail reports that Harry Potter fan sites have received emails from concerned parents.

"We as parents feel Daniel should not appear nude. Our nine-year-old son looks up to him as a role model. We are very disappointed and will avoid the future movies he makes," one parent wrote.

Another said: "I am curious as to how and why his parents said this was okay."

Some of his younger fans, however, are impressed with Radcliffe's tough new look.

"I am completely stunned by these pix," wrote GinnyPotter on fan site

"He is no longer the shy boy in the prefects' bathroom anymore. His body is ... I can't even say or I will no doubt be banned but he has grown a lot and I am very proud of Daniel."

Another wrote: "When I saw it I couldn't breathe for a moment. I was shocked. But (the) pictures are very cool and very good. I like it ... They're awesome!"

The publicity shots were taken between filming of the fifth and sixth Harry Potter movies.

The play's producer, David Pugh, told the Daily Mail that Radcliffe had been rehearsing the nude scenes with Christie for more than a week and had overcome his initial shyness.

The young actor's spokeswoman, Vanessa Davies, said: "Daniel does not want to step away from Harry Potter but he does want to show he is a rounded actor capable of very different and diverse roles."

"He has tremendous support from Harry Potter fans," she said.

Wow! For me it is okay, there’s nothing wrong with that, as long as the parents won’t send their children to that play and there’s nothing wrong with that. Daniel Radcliffe can’t stay as a Harry Potter forever, he needs to grow and so with his roles on movies and plays too. So, to the parents, Harry Potter is only a role played by Daniel Radcliffe every children admires but that is only a character of the movie or the story Harry Potter and Equus is different and he should give justice to that role he played as Alan Strang.
