Harry Potter Post 52
"You want to know the truth of it all," he said. "That what's so good about J.K. Rowling's writing, is that no characters were sacred. I think that's what made it so good. I was quite keen for Harry to die. I couldn't see of another way of the series ending. That's why I don't write them and she does. She's more imaginative than I am."
Potter says he doesn't think he grew up on camera."I regard myself as having grown up on sets and then at home," he said. "I still did all my embarrassing teenage moments behind closed doors, thankfully, so the world wasn't privy to them, luckily."
He said, "I just wanted to say thank-you to everybody, but not just thank-you, because in a very real sense, I do love them in the way that you love a family, and have been there to support you every day for 10 years."
Radcliffe continued, "One of the French King Louis, I'm not sure which one, since I lose track after a certain point -- his last word were, he turned to all the people around him and said, 'Why are you crying, did you imagine I was immortal?' It's that same thing; it's like it had to end sometime, and we may as well celebrate it instead of getting too sad."
"People have an image of actors or anyone that is in the public eye that, when you meet them, that they are going horrible or very intimidating. I don't think I'm any of those things. I consider myself very, very boring and very, very normal. I guess that would be the thing that surprises people the most, is that there is not much to me that is very surprising."
