Daniel Radcliffe has said he took being an action hero for granted during his 10 years starring in the Harry Potter films.

The 21-year-old actor - who is currently starring on Broadway in musical How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying - has told the Daily Mirror how much he will miss playing the boy wizard as the films were full of exciting stunts.

Daniel said: "One thing I took for granted over the 10 years was that I was playing an action hero. You don't get to do that in any other line of performance.

He added: "I got to slide 40ft down a roof, I got burst out of a ring of fire. I got to do some really cool stuff. I probably won't get to do that so much any more."

Daniel revealed he has accepted that to some fans he will always be Harry Potter, but he is ready to move on and play other roles.

He said: "There will be some people who always see me as this character, I know that and understand that.

"That's fine. As long as they are not casting directors and film makers, hopefully it won't hold me back. That's my attitude to it."
