Daniel Radcliffe has claimed he feels ‘intensely embarrassed’ by his acting in the Harry Potter franchise, as he looked back at the magical mega hit.

The actor, 31, was just 11 when he appeared in Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone, and starred in seven subsequent films over the next ten years.

Speaking with fellow former child star Elijah Wood in Empire Magazine’s latest issue on Friday, Daniel took the opportunity to reflect on his acting ability at the time. 

'It's like asking, "how do you feel about your teenage years?"' Daniel Radcliffe claimed he is 'intensely embarrassed' by his acting in the Harry Potter franchise in a new interview on Friday

He told the Lord Of The Rings star: ‘It’s hard to separate my relationship with Harry from my relationship with the films as a whole. 

‘I’m incredibly grateful for the experience. It showed me what I want to do with the rest of my life. To find out early on what you love is really lucky. 

‘I’m intensely embarrassed by some of my acting, obviously [laughs], but yeah, it’s like asking, “how do you feel about your teenage years?”‘

Daniel added that because he was part of the Harry Potter for so long that he believes it’s ‘impossible’ to only express a single feeling to describe what it was like.

The actor found international fame as Harry Potter in the eponymous franchise alongside Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley and Emma Watson as Hermione.

The movie is based on the bestselling books by J. K. Rowling, and premiered with Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone in 2001  and ended in 2011 with Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows – Part 2.

In January it was reported that a live-action TV series based on the books is in the early stages of development for HBO Max.

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that Warner Bros. have held a series of meetings to bring the blockbuster franchise – based on the seven beloved books by J.K. Rowling – to television. 

However, representatives for HBO Max and Warner Bros are denying that such talks are taking place, telling DailyMail.com in a statement: ‘There are no Harry Potter series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform.’

Despite the denial, another Hollywood trade – Variety – also reported Monday that there have been discussions about a potential TV series.  

According to THR, it’s very early days however, with only broad ideas being discussed. So far no talent or writers are attached to the prospective series.

Still, the trade publication claims producers have had ‘multiple conversations’ with writers to explore ideas on expanding the wizarding world of Harry Potter, that has spawned eight feature films grossing more than $7 billion worldwide. 

Rowling controls the Potter franchise and has a say in everything involving the property and its distribution.
