Daniel Radcliffe Wants You To Stop Comparing Him to Harry Potter
English actor Daniel Radcliffe, who is currently starring in romantic comedy ‘What If’, wants his fans to stop comparing his new work to his role in ‘Harry Potter’ films.
“There is no one film that fully separates me, in the eyes of everyone else, from Harry Potter – that isn’t going to happen,” the actor told BBC Radio 2.
Radcliffe’s admitted that he’s been trying to disassociate himself from the Potter role to become a ‘real actor’.
“It’s hard to watch a film like Harry Potter because I’m just not very good in it,” he sai. “I hate it. My acting is very one-note, and I can see I got complacent, and what I was trying to do just didn’t come across.”
The actor is focusing on different kinds of projects now.
“It’s about building up as diverse and interesting a body of work as I can,” he reasoned.
Since Harry Potter, Radcliffe has starred in a number of films such as ‘The Woman in Black’, ‘Kill Your Darlings’, and now ‘What If’. But despite the films’ successes, the actor is resigned to the fact the comparisons to his ‘Harry Potter’ films will never go away.
He added: “I’m looking forward to the day where I can release a film and it not be talked about in that way.”
