'Harry Potter' Daniel Radcliffe: 'I'm not a natural actor'

Daniel Radcliffe talks Harry Potter
Daniel Radcliffe has admitted that acting does not "come naturally" to him.

The 21-year-old accepted that there was some truth behind accusations that he, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson won their Harry Potter roles based on their physical resemblance to JK Rowling's characters.

"I think there's a perception that we got the parts because we looked right," he said to Virgin Media. "I think that's probably quite fair."

Radcliffe also said that he found it hard to compare his early Harry Potter performances with the more accomplished turns of other child stars.

"Acting is something that I don't necessarily think comes naturally to me," he confessed. "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."

Radcliffe said this week that he will miss the action sequences of Harry Potter.

He previously argued that he was unlikely to replicate the success of Harry Potter later in his career.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 opens in US and UK cinemas on Friday.
