Daniel Radcliffe (also known as The Boy Who Lived by Harry Potter fans) appeared on Late Night Tuesday to talk about his role in What If. The film, shockingly normal by Radcliffe’s standards, is a romantic comedy where Radcliffe plays a young man named Wallace who’s had trouble finding love in the past. When he meets a girl who could be “the one,” he finds out that she’s living with her long-time boyfriend.

Radcliffe, known for playing more dramatic and fantastical roles, said in the interview, “I think, doing a film where I at no point have to save a dying child, or have a breakdown, or get covered in blood was really nice.”
