Dan Radcliffe On Acting After Harry Potter


May 17, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

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.”

GO DAN!!!Avatar ImageEmmaline10248 says: Great job Dan Avatar Imagedaharja says: Why must he be so awesome? Every time I think he's hit the peak of awesomeness, he just gets cooler. I can't wait for H2$! I'm going to try to get tickets for opening night.

Can't wait to see you act in other projects, Dan! :)Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: Well I was expecting none the less,Dan has turned into quite an actor, and I am sure he will do very well in what ever role he chooses to do!!! I will always look at him and remember him by his awesome role as Harry Potter, ALL HP Movies and Books will definately go down in History!!! as well as the Author JK Rowling who created the character of Harry Potter and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry to be shared all over the world!!!! Avatar ImageHarrypotterultrafan says: good luck dan :)Avatar Imagehewy says: What a modest young man he is! He will succeed at whatever he sets out to do. Would love to see him in the musical but alas only one trip out of state per year and this one is to Orlando and WWoHP. Best of luck in all your future endevors Dan you are a credit to your craft!Avatar Imagemew5645 says: Good for him Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: Dan will do fine! As his fans we support him in all he does. Avatar Imageccking says: I'll never see him as anybody but HP. I've grown up knowing him as that. Same goes for rupert, emma, tom, evanna and bonnie.Avatar Imagemagicmaniac says: so coolAvatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I look forward to seeing how he advances with his career!Avatar Imageanne1 says: Dan will succeed because he has the humility to know that stardom and HP alone will not guarantee success in the future. He's already shown in his accent and voice training work for DB and Equus and his training for H2S that he's prepared to work to develop new skills. And he's keen to branch out beyond his comfort zone. Wish I had half his energy and enthusiasm! Avatar ImagecOoLiO_bEans1494 says: He has great potential. I really think he can become his own person as I am sure that mayn people will categorise him now and call his that Harry Potter actor but I am sure he will certainly surprise us. I wish him luck. Avatar Imagetjerriam says: oh..everybody here on leaky cauldron knows that harry was a very good harry..thats good for you idol daniel....and i think you will have a fine acting career in the future..Avatar Imagephoenixortheflame says: He better go far in acting, cause amazing is the first word that comes to mind when I have to describe his acting skills.Avatar ImageJackMeggers says: i look forward to watching them all grow as actors
