Daniel Radcliffe gets drunk in new Slow Club video – watch
Harry Potter star appears in indie duo's video for 'Beginners'
The Harry Potter actor, who is a big fan of the Sheffield band, is the main focus of the video, which sees him staggering around a deserted bar, drinking shots and punching walls. The clip was shot at the Faltering Fullback pub in London's Finsbury Park.
Singer Rebecca Taylor says in this week's NME, which will be on newsstands tomorrow (June 20) and available digitally:
We'd known Daniel was a fan and found this pretty cool, but then we met him, got to hang out and chat, and now we have him in our video. He is one of the most energetic and exciting people to be around and has been committed to getting the video right and for that we are so in awe. He made us realise how lazy we all are when it comes to videos!
She added that the video's director Lucy Needs, with whom the band have worked with before "totally enhances the meaning of the song", before adding that Radcliffe "looks like a massive babe throughout!"
Daniel Radcliffe isn't the first Harry Potter star to appear in a music video. Rupert Grint recently appeared in Ed Sheeran's video for his track 'Lego House'.
'Beginners' is the latest track to be taken from the band's second album 'Paradise', which was released in September.
