Daniel Radcliffe reveals acting doesn’t come naturally

11 July 2011

With Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 coming to cinemas in just a matter of days, Daniel Radcliffe has admitted in a new interview that acting doesn’t come naturally to him.

Talking to Virgin Media, the boy wizard actor revealed that he probably landed the part of Harry because of his resemblance to the J.K. Rowling character.

“I think there's a perception that we got the parts because we looked right, I think that's probably quite fair.”

His other revelation that Radcliffe made was that he doesn't rank himself alongside other child actors who drew rave reviews for their on-screen performances.

“Acting is something that I don't necessarily think comes naturally to me, certainly not as natural as it does to, say, Haley Joel Osment or Dakota Fanning, who were just giving full-blown adult performances at the age of ten.”

The epic finale to the Harry Potter phenomenon comes to cinemas on Friday and stars an all star cast including Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman, Michael Gambon, Evanna Lynch, Clémence Poésy, Warwick Davis, John Hurt, Helena Bonham Carter, Kelly Macdonald, Jason Isaacs, Tom Felton, Ciarán Hinds, Matthew Lewis, Bonnie Wright, Maggie Smith, Jim Broadbent, Miriam Margolyes, Gemma Jones, David Thewlis, Julie Walters, Mark Williams, Emma Thompson, Robbie Coltrane, Gary Oldman, Leslie Phillips, Peter Mullan, David Bradley, Natalia Tena and George Harris.

Following that, Radcliffe will star in the big screen adaptation of the Susan Hill novel The Woman in Black which reunites him with his Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 co star Ciarán Hinds when it comes to cinemas on February 10 next year.
