British actor Daniel Radcliffe has accepted he'll forever be linked to his wand-wielding character Harry Potter - because his role in the film has "given him everything".
The 19-year-old attempted to shed his boyish image when he stripped for a full frontal nude seen on London and New York stages in Equus.
But Radcliffe insists he'll always be thankful for his magical role in the blockbuster franchise.
He says, "It's a reality you have to come to terms with - rather than letting it bother you, just accept the fact that there will always be some people who will forever see you for the one part you are most famous for.
"It's not that I want to distance myself from it because... they've given me everything... it's just a matter of being an actor rather than a character."
