Daniel Radcliffe: 'I'll Never Escape Harry Potter'
But star insists he's not trying to get away from the role that made him famous...
However a new interview has shown that the 25-year-old actor had no qualms about discussing another important relationship - with the character that made him famous.
"I don't think there's ever going to be one film in people's minds that finally separates me from Harry and I don't think I ever will be separated from Harry and I don't want to be," he conceded.
"It was an incredibly important part of my life and something I still love and I'm very proud of, but I think this film, like Kill Your Darlings was and like The Woman In Black was, is just another step in showing people that I am interested in doing other things and that I'm just going to be sort of popping up as an actor now, doing jobs away from the world you might have seen me in, in the past."
And he revealed that he'd enjoyed shooting the rom-com, as a change of pace from his other work.
"To be able to do a whole film where your job every day was to turn up and make the person in the scene with you laugh rather than to have some sort of emotional breakdown or save a dying child from a train, or whatever it is I've done in other films.
"It was nice to be able to turn up and be myself every day. I mean, it is the most like myself of any character I've ever played I think."
And the remarkably grounded young man showed that he was aware he'd been trying to take jobs that would distance him from his child star roots.
"I've made a lot of very dark films since Potter and it's not necessarily that that's a choice it's just that's the kind of stuff I gravitate towards so it was nice to find something that was light and you felt would make people happy."
