Daniel Radcliffe - Daniel Radcliffe lost confidence after Potter

Daniel Radcliffe lost all his confidence after starring in 'Harry Potter.'

The 23-year-old star - who played the titular wizard in all eight movies of the blockbuster franchise - worried at the end of his work on the film series that he wouldn't be good enough to tackle other roles and hates having time off as his concerns escalate.

He said: ''With any kind of artistic thing it's a muscle, like any athlete, and the moment you're not doing it, you lose all confidence.

''That's why I'm terrible with down time. And actually what's been great about the last year and a half is that I have found a confidence. Before, basically, by the time we got to the end of 'Potter', I was going, 'I don't know if I can do this, I don't know if I'm good enough.'''

The movie star has since landed a role in 'A Young Doctor's Notebook' which is a TV adaption of Mikhail Bulgakov's novel 'A Country Doctor's Notebook' and he says he was overjoyed when he was approached as he's an ''obsessive fan'' of the Russian author.

He told The Independent Radar magazine: ''They had no idea, that I was this obsessive fan. I read it and immediately loved it, and read it again immediately afterwards, and then, for my 21st birthday I went to Russia to visit his apartment, as my present to myself.''
