Daniel Radcliffe - Daniel Radcliffe loves being recognised

Daniel Radcliffe is delighted when people know his real name.

The 23-year-old actor is finally moving past his lead role in the 'Harry Potter' franchise and is relieved fans are starting to recognise he is a person in his own right, and not the troubled teen wizard created by J.K. Rowling.

He explained: ''I'd be lying if I said I didn't get Harry Potter at all. Of course I do. But you know what? I'd say the split is now rather encouragingly in favour of Daniel Radcliffe, which is rather lovely.

''I walked past two girls on a bench the other day, and I heard them both go, 'Oh my god, it's Daniel Radcliffe', and every time that happens I think, 'Yesss!' Not because they recognise me, because they use my name.''

The humble star also revealed he hates being invited to showbiz events because he finds them incredibly awkward and, despite having bared all performing naked on stage in 'Equus' in 2007, he still gets nervous when he has to make small talk in a room full of people.

Daniel confessed to Seven magazine: ''You can still be self-conscious in my position. And shy. Shyness displays it differently in me. I think it's more an awkwardness. Like when I go to those events, like the Baftas, or like I was invited to this thing called the Met Ball, and I ended up having a good night because I took a friend, but normally I feel very awkward at event like that.

''Because I don't feel that I'm that good at small talk... I never know how to give an accurate impression of myself, so I just become nervous or stumbley.''
