The 23-year-old actor said that he is "incredibly proud" of his involvement in the blockbuster series and is happy to be associated with his character well into the future.
Speaking to Yahoo! News, Radcliffe said that it felt like the press expected his role as the boy wizard to limit his career.
"I feel like everyone wanted Potter to be more of a handcuff than it actually was," he said.
"I think [the phenomenon] is going to be around for a while - a long while - but as long as it doesn't inhibit me getting parts in the present time, then it's fine.
"It's a lovely association to have, because it's something I'm incredibly proud of."
Radcliffe - who has gone on to star in TV dramas and films following the conclusion of the franchise, and has received critical acclaim for his performances in stage and Broadway productions - also stated that he considers the Harry Potter films a huge part of his life.
"People always say, 'Don't you just want to forget about it?'" he explained, before adding: "No [I don't]! That was my entire adolescence."
Radcliffe is due to return to the West End in June in Martin McDonagh's comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan. His latest film, Kill Your Darlings in which he plays the poet Allen Ginsberg, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and was later bought by Sony Pictures.
