Dan Radcliffe On Acting After Harry Potter

Radcliffe Interviews

Dan Radcliffe is the subject of a new profile in the Metro in which the young Harry Potter actor discusses his hopes in becoming a "working actor" following production on the last installment of the Harry Potter films.  Having already completed his fair share of film and theater productions, Radcliffe relates that "It’s bizarre. Most working actors want to become stars. I sort of am a star because of Harry Potter."  He continues, saying:

"And I would love to become a working actor. I love auditioning. But, to be honest, I’m happy to ride this as long as it goes.  If it goes for two months after Potter, I’m happy. If it goes for six years, I’m happy."
With the final two installments of the last film slated for release this fall and next summer, readers will recall that Mr. Radcliffe will be returning to the Broadway stage in a revival of the musical "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."

It’s great to see that he’s so interested in acting and I’m positive he’ll act even more than 6 years after Harry Potter. :) It’s really great to read that he’s modest and that he’s not sure if he’s good or not. I think that attitude can only help him to be better and better in the future. :) And after getting so many great critics for Equus it’s obvious that only sky is the limit for him! :)

I think Dan has the most chance out of all the HP actors if doing well (no offence to the others). He is just a fantastic actor and he’s so commited. Keep it up Dan, love you!

“I sort of am a star because of Harry Potter.” LOL, yeah, he is “sort” of a star…It’s nice that he’s so down to earth. I think he has a brilliant career ahead of him. Good luck, Dan.

Sounds like he’s pretty grounded about where he is and where he’s going, which is good. No doubt he will go far in his career, though I am glad he’s not in a hurry to shed his HP status!
