Daniel Radcliffe: 'Lack of trailers helped Kill Your Darlings cast bond onset'

Daniel Radcliffe preferred not having his own trailer on the set of low-budget Allen Ginsberg biopic Kill Your Darlings because it forced the cast to hang out together and bond in between takes.

The former Harry Potter star portrays the late poet in the new independent drama alongside Dane DeHaan as Lucien Carr, Jack Huston as Jack Kerouac and Ben Foster as William S. Burroughs, and he admits the minimalist set helped the actors to build up a rapport which only added to their onscreen chemistry.

He tells breakfast show Today, "We didn't have trailers on this one, but that actually did a great thing because it meant all the actors just hung out in green rooms and we got to know each other really, really well in a way that you don't always on films...

"It's my least favorite thing that I hear actors say, when they go, 'Film sets are so boring, you have to wait in your trailer all the time.' I'm like, 'You don't have to, you can actually go on set and engage with people if you like!'"

Michael C. Hall, Elizabeth Olsen, Jennifer Jason Leigh, David Cross and Kyra Sedgwick also star in the movie.
