Daniel Radcliffe Talks Moving Past 'Harry Potter' in 'NY Times'

Daniel Radcliffe Talks Moving Past 'Harry Potter' in 'NY Times'

Daniel Radcliffe shows off his scruff on the cover of the New York Times magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 23-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On his Harry Potter fame: “I have a massive chip on my shoulder. When you fall into something at age 11 and get paid incredible amounts of money for your entire teenage years for doing a job anyone would want, there is a part of you that thinks everybody is just saying, ‘He got there because he fell into it; he’s not really an actor.’”

On getting nervous meeting crowds of fans: “I’m more nervous about the anticipation of feeling bad. When you’ve got thousands of people who’ve gotten up at 4 in the morning and think they’re going to get something and they won’t…”

On moving past Harry Potter: “It’s just my face. I have to accept the fact that my face is going to remind people of Harry because I played that character. If I try to avoid being expressive in that same way, all I’ll do is stop being expressive, and I won’t be any farther away from that character.”

It must be hard for him, really. Because nobody is gonna get past the fact that he’s Harry Potter….. In a way, it means that he was perfectly right for the role and we got used to him, we loved him as Harry but at the same time…. we just canNOT get past that. I know I can’t xD …Good luck to him in his future career, I support him but everytime I see him in a movie, I’m always like “Oh, that’s Harry!” hehe :D
