Daniel Radcliffe has been acting since age 10, so playing an FBI agent who goes undercover among white supremacists wasn’t the hard part of his new movie, “Imperium.”
“Driving on camera,” says the 27-year-old star, who had to do some hectic maneuvering in a pickup truck for the film. “I was more comfortable doing the gun stuff than driving. And I have spent no time around guns, but I felt like I was more likely to kill someone in a car.
"I passed my driving test a couple years ago specifically so I could drive on films because I was getting into situations where we were getting doubles for me to drive and closing off roads, so it was becoming too costly.”
“Imperium” is based on a real-life domestic terrorist plot foiled by former FBI agent Mike German, played by the “Harry Potter” alum. We talked to Radcliffe and the film’s screenwriter and director, Daniel Ragussis, about how racism thrives and swastika cupcakes.
