Daniel Radcliffe has gone from magic man to action man after he was spotted lying in a crumpled heap at the bottom of the stairs while filming The F Word.

The film is meant to be a romantic comedy, but it was an action packed day of shooting in Dublin for the 23-year-old actor.

Not only was he faking a tumble, but he was also seen sprinting to catch a taxi.

However, he was soon back on his feet as if by magic, and was seen joking with the cast and crew.

The actor was wearing a pair of brown trousers, a blue shirt and a jacket during shooting, while his female co-star wore a colourful patterned short dress, white jacket and red shoes.

It looked to be a chilly day, as his female co stars, including Zoe Kazan, were seen wrapped up in between takes.

Radcliffe, who also had a large black jacket to hand, meanwhile seemed happy to walk around the set mingling with his fellow actors and crew members.

And if he wasn't lying down on the floor, he was rushing to a taxi during a unusually action-packed day of shooting for the romantic comedy.

While he was wearing layers of clothing for the action scene, he will be seen wearing much less as the actor is said to be filming two nude scenes for the movie.

But despite their blatant attraction to each other they try to stay just friends as she has a long-term boyfriend, played by Rafe Spall.

The actor is clearly enjoying taking a break from big screen epics.

He said about the role to ET Online: 'This is the first time that I've done something contemporary….It's
nice to be in normal clothes and saying words that I might say.'

However, he's not given up the blockbusters for good.

He's reportedly being lined up to star in a new Frankenstein movie from director Paul McGuigan.
