Daniel Radcliffe appears in a gay love scene in the film "Kill Your Darlings," currently being shown in the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

The film received buzz for the "Harry Potter" star's portrayal of the late beat poet Allan Ginsburg. who was a homosexual.

"It's interesting that it's deemed shocking," Radcliffe said about his portrayal, as reported by United Press International. "For me, there's something very strange about that because we see straight sex scenes all the time. We've seen gay sex scenes before. I don't know why a gay sex scene should be any more shocking than a straight sex scene. Or both of them are equally un-shocking."

"Kill Your Darlings" is about a 1944 murder involving literary heroes of the Beat Generation. It was screened on Friday, Jan. 18, at Sundance to positive reception and Radcliffe's gay love scene seems to be the main buzz among moviegoers, as the young star makes a post-Potter name for himself, according to The Associated Press.

Romance of another kind may have sparked on the set as the 23-year-old actor is rumored to possibly dating his "Kill Your Darlings" co-star Erin Darke. The two were seen spending time together on Friday at the Grey Goose Vodka Lounge at the Blue Door in Park City. Radcliffe and Darke were allegedly seen kissing and cuddling as well as dancing during the evening.

"They were affectionate most of the night," said a source, reported by Us Magazine. Darke allegedly "was touching his knee" at their VIP table and "they were a little more obvious outside the venue after they were leaving." 

People Magazine reported that Radcliffe and Darke were at the club with the whole cast where they were celebrating the film's premiere.

The annual Sundance Film Festival began Jan. 17 and ends Jan. 27.
