Daniel Radcliffe will 'always' be Harry Potter

April 12th, 2011

Daniel Radcliffe says he will never be able to shake off his 'Harry Potter' tag.

The actor has played the schoolboy wizard for 10 years and although the movie franchise is set to come to an end later this year, he admits to some people he will always be Harry.

He said: "There will be some people who will always see me as this character, I know that and understand that. That's fine. As long as they are not casting directors and film makers, hopefully it won't hold me back. That's my attitude."

Daniel, 21, also admitted he took playing Harry for "granted" as he got to do so many exciting stunts and scenes while shooting the series of films.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "One thing I took for granted over the 10 years was that I was playing an action hero. You don't get to do that in any other line of performance. I got to slide 40ft down a roof, I got burst out of a ring of fire. I got to do some really cool stuff. I probably won't get to do that so much anymore."

Meanwhile it has been confirmed the shooting of the final two movies in the franchise is being documented by filmmaker Morgan Matthews, with the affect of the end of the series on the actors seen for the first time.

However, it is not known if the documentary will be for TV or for a wider audience.
