NY Theater Bosses To Protect Nude Potter Star

Fans hoping for a snapshot of Daniel Radcliffe's forthcoming full-frontal performance on Broadway will miss out - New York theatre bosses are stepping up security measures to scupper sly snappers.

The Harry Potter star will strip nude in controversial play Equus, which debuts in New York this autumn (08).

In order to prevent pictures being taken of Radcliffe naked, theatre officials are planning to employ infrared devices within the theatre - to spot cunning cameraphone users.

A spokesperson for the Shubert Organization tells the New York Post high security will also be in place following the performance, so Radcliffe can escape the crowds of Harry Potter fans expected to camp outside the stage door for a glimpse of their hero. (JMA/PYN/IG)
