Actor Daniel Radcliffe thinks he can never get rid of the "Harry Potter" label.
The 23-year-old star, who played the character of the teenage wizard for eight movies, said he is hoping that people will eventually start recognising him as an actor in his own right, reported Contactmusic.
"I do think it will be another few years before we see an article that won't mention Potter. I'm not sure that will happen. The goal isn't to stop Harry Potter being written about; that's unachievable.
"The goal is to make myself an actor rather than just one character. I think that's starting to happen," he said.
The actor said he is so self-critical that he can only bring himself to watch the fifth and eighth films in the magical franchise.
"I think it's important to be your own toughest critic because that way you'll always be driven to get better. But it's important to temper that with being able to give yourself credit for something you're pleased with. I was very bad at that before. I was unable to see anything good, but now I'm tarting to," he added.
