Radcliffe: I don’t think about co-stars

Daniel Radcliffe is focused on his own career.

The 24-year-old thespian rose to fame as a child actor in the wizard film franchise co-starring Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.

He’s since become known for more racy roles, baring all at age 17 in Broadway play Equus and more recently taking part in a sex scene with Kill Your Darlings co-star Dane DeHaan.

Asked by MTV News if he’s “disappointed” his former co-stars didn’t follow in his exhibitionist footsteps, Daniel shrugged: “I certainly look like the most enthusiastic nudist of the three of us,” insisting, “It’s not something that I think about particularly.”

Daniel still remains best known for his role in the Potter series based on the books by J.K. Rowling, who also penned a tome about Harry as a 30-something-year-old man.

The actor, who took on the role at age 11 and went on to star eight films, recently said he’s not convinced returning to take on that role would be a good idea.

“My inclination is to say no,” he said at the Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour earlier this month.

“I don’t think it’s a question — not even a hypothetical at this moment. As I understand, it’s a very short piece, not of itself worthy of adaptation to film,” he continued, adding, “He’s at least 12 years older in it than I am now. I don’t think I’ll have to worry about that for a long time.”

Daniel has been building a diverse list of credits since leaving the franchise.

He took his final bow in the Broadway production of The Cripple of Inishmaan.on Sunday night and is currently promoting his British TV series A Young Doctor’s Notebook.

His next film, Michael Dowse-directed romantic comedy What If, is slated to open in US cinemas August 8.
