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.
