Radcliffe Desperate To Shake Off Harry Potter Tag

Actor DANIEL RADCLIFFE is desperate to shake off his HARRY POTTER tag - and wants the public to see him as "an actor in his own right". The 17-year-old star has played the boy wizard since 2000, but appeared onstage in Equus on London's West End earlier this year (07). And Radcliffe admits it will take more than playing one different role to change the public's perception of him as solely Harry Potter. He says, "It was fantastic to do Equus but I'm not under the false impression that doing one different role will make people suddenly see me as an actor in my own right rather than the actor who plays Harry Potter. "I think if I continue to do other interesting roles, hopefully people will see me differently."
