Daniel Radcliffe has ditched his Harry Potter hairdo for long, chin-length hair, courtesy of hair extensions, for his role in the upcoming "Frankenstein" movie.

Radcliffe gave the public a view of his new mop on a recent appearance of Great Britain's "Graham Norton Show," where he was promoting his movie "Kill Your Darlings," which had a limited release in the United States in September.

"Real dead human beings' hair … it's from, I assume, a dead person or a person who donated their hair," Radcliffe said in a video clip of the program, showing that he had little knowledge of what the hair extensions come from.

British food writer Mary Berry, also a guest on Norton's show, told Radcliffe that people sell their hair to companies for the extensions, and and that is where his hair likely came from.

After Berry's explanation, the host Norton deadpans, "It was found on the floor."

"Kill Your Darlings," which also stars Michael C. Hall from "Dexter," Elizabeth Olsen, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, features Radcliffe as a 1940s college poet who is looking for new meaning in his work and gets more than he could handle.

"Frankenstein," which is currently set for theaters in January 2015, features James McAvoy as Victor Von Frankenstein and Radcliffe as his assistant Igor. McAvoy is best known as the young Charles Xavier in "X-Men: The First Class" and the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

Of course, Radcliffe was the face of one of the most successful movie franchises in motion picture history as the title character in the Harry Potter series. The eight Harry Potter movies have made more than $2.39 billion at the turnstile.

The last movie in the franchise, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2," brought in a franchise record $381 million at the box office.
