Daniel Radcliffe was just 11 years old when he starred in his first Harry Potter film. Eight movies later, the 26-year-old actor has advice for franchise newcomers, like Star Wars actorsDaisy Ridley and John Boyega.
“Just enjoy it! There's some weird thing that I think people feel about franchises, where they're like, 'You do that so you can do other cool work.’ -- franchises are fun!” Radcliffe told ET. “You get to do stuff in franchises that you don't get to do when you're doing little indie movies. You get to do stunt sequences and crazy action stuff. It’s a lot of fun!”
We won’t name any names – but there are a few people who could definitely take a cue from this positive outlook.
The seasoned actor was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, and got emotional on stage when talking about his parents’ support throughout the years. He told ET he credits them for his ability to say humble.
“Everyone always seems amazed that I'm not a raging monster as a human being from growing up in the industry so young,” said Radcliffe. “The only people that aren't amazed by that are people who know my parents because, I'm there son so it makes sense that I would turn out okay. I owe them my sanity and they're amazing.”
