Jason Isaacs is convinced his Harry Potter co-star Daniel Radcliffe will quit acting for a career behind the camera.
Radcliffe was 11 years old when he landed the lead role in the blockbuster franchise and has grown up in the spotlight.
The actor, now 19, has made several other movies and ventured onto the stage in both London and New York productions of Equus last year (08).
But Isaacs, who plays Lucius Malfoy in the Potter films, is adamant his young pal has a long Hollywood career ahead of him - but not as an actor.
He says, "Daniel will potentially be a great director or producer. He's very interested in behind-the-camera work. Remember, (he) has spent more hours in front of the camera in the last decade than most people have in their entire career."
