Daniel Radcliffe in new movie

Daniel Radcliffe, in his first dramatic role since the Harry Potter series, plays John "Jack" Kipling in the television drama 'My Boy Jack'.

Set during World War One, the true story looks at how Rudyard Kipling used his influence to get his 17-year-old son Jack a commission with the Irish Guards, despite his son's poor eyesight. Jack went missing in action during the Battle of Loos and his mother and father carried out an ardent search for him, spanning many years and many miles of soul-destroying discovery.

The television movie will air later this year on in the UK and US.
