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."

I think he is a better off taking his turn on the stage and learning his craft from there. From there, the world is his oyster. Good luck on the long hard road ahead.

Dan’s acting has improved so much over the years.. I can’t wait to see what else he does after Potter. I’d love to see him on Broadway! :)
