TORONTO, Ont. -- Harry Potter fans may want to cover their eyes.
Daniel Radcliffe admitted he doesn’t long for his days as a student at Hogwarts.
“I’m excited that people will finally get a chance to see me do different stuff. We had a fantastic time doing Harry Potter but it’s really exciting to move on and doing other things,” he said at the Toronto International Film Festival, according to Britain’s Telegraph newspaper.
“I’ll always be incredibly proud of it. I wouldn’t be sitting here talking to you all if it weren’t for ‘Harry Potter.’ I have no illusions about that. But I don’t particularly miss it. I’m very happy doing other things now,” the actor added.
And, according to the paper, Daniel said he hasn’t seen his “Harry Potter” co-star, Emma Watson, who played Hermoine, in a while.
“I’m sure I’ll bump into her at one point,” he said. “But we were all together for 10 years so we’re excited to be going off and working with new people now.”
The young actor, now 24, is promoting three films at TIFF – “Kill Your Darlings,” which sees him playing Allen Ginsberg, “The F Word,” and “Horns.”
In “Kill Your Darlings,” Daniel has a sex scene with another man, but he told CTV he is not worried about the reaction from fans of his work.
“What my fan base wants me to do is not the most effective way of forging a career, or certainly not the most honest way of doing it. You got to remember that I did ‘Equus’ and that was a pretty big deal,” he said.
