He's known for iconic role in the "Harry Potter" films, and now Daniel Radcliffe reveals he's ready to put his days at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry behind him.

In the latest issue of New York Times' magazine, the 24-year-old actor chatted about his days as "the boy who lived" and why he's ready to move on.

"I have a massive chip on my shoulder," Mr. Radcliffe explains. "When you fall into something at age 11 and get paid incredible amounts of money for your entire teenage years for doing a job anyone would want, there is a part of you that thinks everybody's just saying, 'He got there because he fell into it; he's not really an actor."

Also discuss his final farewell of his Harry Potter image, Daniel states, "It's just my face. I have to accept the fact that my face is going to remind people of Harry because I played that character. If I try to avoid being expressive in that same way, all I'll do is stop being expressive, and I won't be any farther away from that character."
