The actor is explaining why he hasn’t returned to big studio films that could spawn into franchises. Daniel Radcliffe, rose to worldwide stardom when he played Harry Potter in the franchise of the same name, in 2001. “I’m not really [avoiding them]…There have been some studio films that just have not been for me, but I’ve not been turning down loads of franchises, either. I don’t want to give that impression.” “One of the things I love about my career now is that I have a lot of freedom to do lots of different things and if I was going to get stuck into one thing for a very long time again, it would have to be for a very good reason,” explains Daniel.
