VIDEO: Daniel Radcliffe Shares His Biggest Fear for Final 'INISHMAAN' Performances

THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN, starring Daniel Radcliffe, will soon wrap up its successful run on Broadway. Directed by Michael Grandage, the limited engagement opened on April 20th at Broadway's Theatre and will end on July 20.

Radcliffe sat down with MTV News and revealed his biggest fear regarding what may happen during the final performances of the show!

"I screwed up a line the other day for the first time weeks," Radcliffe said. "When you're doing a play for a while - and I don't mean this to sound like you get terribly lazy and complacent - there comes a point where you're just going on muscle memory, so you're not really thinking about it overly and too consciously. When something does go wrong, you just hear the line, and you hear it come out wrong. You're like, 'That's not right.'"

In addition to Mr. Radcliffe, the production features Ingrid Craigie (Kate Osborne), Pádraic Delaney (Babbybobby), Sarah Greene (Helen McCormick), Gillian Hanna (Eileen Osborne), Conor MacNeill (Bartley McCormick), Aidan Redmond (Doctor), Pat Shortt (Johnnypateenmike) and June Watson(Mammy).

THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN is produced on Broadway by Michael Grandage Company, Arielle Tepper Madover, L.T.D. Productions, Martin McCallum, Stephanie P. McClelland, Stacey Mindich, Starry Night Entertainment, and The Shubert Organization.

Set on the remote island of Inishmaan off the west coast of Ireland, word arrives that a Hollywood film is being made on the neighboring island of Inishmore. The one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Cripple Billy (Daniel Radcliffe), if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life. Martin McDonagh's comic masterpiece examines an ordinary coming of age in extraordinary circumstances and confirms his position as one of the most original Irish voices to emerge in the second half of the twentieth century.

Daniel Radcliffe made his West End debut in 2007 and Broadway debut in 2008-2009 in Peter Shaffer's Equus. He returned to Broadway in 2011 for a 10-month sold out run in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Since completing the final installment in the series of eight Harry Potter films in 2010, Radcliffe has continued to prove himself a diverse and acclaimed talent. He stars in Sony Pictures Classics', Kill Your Darlings, which, having premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, opened to rave reviews. He will next be seen starring opposite Zoe Kazanin CBS Films and eOne's romantic comedy, The F Word, as well as starring opposite Juno Temple in the horror-thriller Horns, which is based on Joe Hill's best-selling book. All three films were invited to screen at the recent Toronto International Film Festival. He is currently shooting Frankenstein with James McAvoy for Twentieth Century Fox. In 2012, Radcliffe starred in Hammer's The Woman in Black, which has since become the most successful British horror film of all time, in addition to its box office success in the US. Last summer, in addition to starring inThe Cripple of Inishmaan in the West End, he filmed the second series of Sky Art's A Young Doctor's Notebook, again opposite Jon Hamm (broadcast on Ovation in the US).
