Radcliffe turns vampire for The Simpsons

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe turned into a vampire to spoof the Twilight movie series in a Halloween special episode of The Simpsons.

In the spooky episode, part of animated TV show's annual Halloween 'Treehouse of Horror' series, the 21-year-old actor plays a mysterious youngster called Edmund, a reference to Robert Pattinson's role Edward in Twilight, reported Contactmusic.

Edmund falls in love with Lisa but his vampire ways are said to be foiled when he takes a bite out of Simpsons patriarch Homer and becomes ill from the large amounts of cholesterol in his blood.

The episode is set to air in the US in the coming weeks as part of the Halloween holiday at the end of the month.
