LONDON, Oct 13, 2006 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Actor Daniel Radcliffe, the star of the "Harry Potter" film franchise, is set to make his nude on-stage debut at London's Gielgud Theatre next year.

In the stage production of Peter Schaffer's "Equus," which officially opens at the British theater Feb. 27, the 17-year-old actor will reportedly sit on a horse naked while simulating a sex act as part of his role, the Daily Mail reported.

In the Thea Sharrock-directed production, Radcliffe takes on the role of troubled groomsman Alan Strang, a role made famous made BBC actor Peter Firth in the original production of the play.

As part of the upcoming production, Radcliffe will also have to perform his first nude scene with 60 select audience members on stage with him, while remaining onlookers will have to be content with typical theater seats.

The Daily Mail said that joining Radcliffe, who is currently working on "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," in the stage production will be actor Richard Griffiths, who played Potter's Uncle Vernon in the "Harry Potter" films.
