Daniel Radcliffe Doesn't Feel Fame Effects

Daniel Radcliffe only feels famous for 'Harry Potter' for three weeks a year.

The actor - who has portrayed the boy wizard in every movie of the series since 2001 - doesn't believe the fame has gone to his head as it is only during promotion he ever knows how iconic his role is.

He said: "The thing is, you only have that sense for that about three weeks a year, maybe, because that's the time you're not working. The rest of the year we're working, we're on set. And then for these three weeks of madness, you know, you're in the middle of lots of people screaming.

"I think we all kind of realise that whoever had been cast as Harry would have been receiving that attention. Anybody who would have been cast in this iconic role would have been getting that sort of attention. So you have to realize that it's not because it's you."

The 21-year-old British star doesn't think his ego has developed because of the role because he "knows" himself well enough to understand what it is people are interested in.

He told Collider.com: "I know me, and I know that I'm not somebody that particularly merits a lot of screaming and shouting.

"And there's nothing special about me as opposed to hundreds of thousands of other people everywhere. So the fact that people are screaming and shouting at me must be.you know, the logical conclusion of that is that it must be because it's such a huge franchise."
