John Augustus Roebling began designing the Brooklyn Bridge before his unexpected death from a tetanus infection. His son Washington took over, but fell ill himself during the construction. His wife Emily became a critical part of the process while Washington was sick; so much for being an "improbable ally"! The Bridge was finished in 1883, and it's a pretty big deal.
Radcliffe appeared in "Kill Your Darlings" last year as Allen Ginsberg, and stars in the upcoming adaptation of Joe Hill's horror novel "Horns," as well as a rom-com with Zoe Kazan called "The F Word."
Shooting on "Brooklyn Bride" is scheduled to start this summer, so get ready for some Potter-mania, NYC. Or we'll just continue acting blasé about movie sets and/or annoyed when they're impeding foot traffic.
