    An unusual interpretation of the famous story of Dr. Victor Frankenstein. At this time, the main actor will be his loyal assistant, Igor. However, the whole feature of the film lies in the fact that the fantastic story will be told exactly by Igor, who, by the way, is not in the original novel by Mary Shelley.

Therefore Radcliffe chose to artificially grow hair.And in this form, he had to be throughout the time while the shooting process was going on.
