Daniel Radcliffe - Daniel Radcliffe wants film set death

Daniel Radcliffe wants to die on a film set.

The 'Kill Your Darlings' actor knows he has to work hard to be disassociated from Harry Potter - the role which made him famous and which he played in eight movies from the age of 11 - but is determined to have a long career and prove himself as an actor.

Discussing getting away from being typecast as the boy wizard, he said: ''I've always said that it's a long process, and in a way it may be a lifelong one.

''It's about proving to people that I'm in this for the long haul, and that I wasn't just looking to get as famous as I could for as long as I could and ride that out. I love almost every aspect of this industry and I want to be in it, and if I could drop dead on a film set at 80, that's how I'd want to go.''

The 23-year-old star also admitted he can't bring himself to watch many of his early turns in the 'Harry Potter' series.

He told Out magazine: ''I certainly wouldn't watch number three, I wouldn't watch the first two, I wouldn't watch four. I might watch five. I definitely wouldn't watch six.''

However, despite his awkwardness at seeing himself on screen, Daniel is growing more comfortable with himself and less critical of his work.

Speaking about a talk he watched recently, he said: ''The speaker said that part of growing up is aiming to succeed but being fulfilled by failing really well.

''That's what I feel this year has been all about for me. I'm looking at my work for the first time and not cringing. I'm going, 'Yes, this is closer to what I want it to be.' ''
