Daniel Radcliffe will miss being an action man, as the Harry Potter saga comes to an end.

The actor, who reprises his role as the boy wizard in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows - Part 2, reckons playing Harry has offered him unmissable chances to be a hero.

"I'll miss getting to do some of the stuff that I get to do as Harry - I don't really have the natural frame and stature of an action hero, so it's kind of a gift for a young actor to be able to do all that stuff," he said.

"I got to do a 40-foot freefall down a roof when I was 15, and all the underwater stuff. Bursting out of the water, surrounded by a ring of fire. I will never get to do that again in my career. So yeah, I will miss some of the opportunities that playing Harry affords you."

However, Daniel is enjoying his current spell on Broadway in the all-singing, all-dancing How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.

"The audiences are just going wild. It's just a huge amount of fun," he said.

"Doing Equus was fantastic, but this - I don't have to torture myself and get naked and all that stuff, I get to actually have fun and laugh and play around. I'm having a very, very good time."

:: Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows - Part 2 opens in cinemas on July 15.
