Did Daniel Radcliffe ever consider quitting Harry Potter?
Daniel Radcliffe first starred as The Boy Who Lived in Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone in 2001 at the age of 11. Then he continued on with the Harry Potter films for the next ten years. However was there ever a time when Daniel Radcliffe ever wanted to get away from the boy wizard franchise? Here is the British actors hilarious response. Its normal for child actors who are in film series or a television show to want to step away from that to avoid being type casted or to be a typical kid. While speaking on The A24 Podcast about his experience as a child actor Daniel Radcliffe had a humorous response when sharing why he never wanted to drop out of Harry Potter.
My mom and dad asked me between every film basically Are you still enjoying it and do you want to go back? I was always like Yes. I hate school. Well portraying a wizarding student going to a cool place like Hogwarts for school is much more fun than any ordinary school for sure. With the charm and preciousness that the young child actor brought to his audition you can not help but want this kid to stay with the series for as long as possible. Radcliffe also said in the podcast that what made him stay with Harry Potter for all of these years was the crew being a second family to him. This should come as no surprise as he has previously thanked the cast of Harry Potter for influencing him as an actor like Imelda Staunton David Thewlis Michael Gambon and Gary Oldman. Not to mention Radcliffe has said that he really enjoyed being an actor. So why walk away from that?
