“If I can make a career for myself after Potter, and it goes well, and is varied and with longevity, then that puts to bed the ‘child actors’ argument… If I can do it, in the biggest film franchise of all time, no other child actor who comes after will ever have to answer those same bloody questions.”
Daniel Radcliffe on why he chose ‘How To Succeed’ as his ‘Harry Potter’ follow up: “To prove that a child actor can go on to have a career with longevity”
“If I can actually do it, having been in one of the biggest franchises ever, then that can end the debate. It is possible. That’s what’s my mission is,” Radcliffe says.
