Radcliffe previously opened up about becoming a dad one day.

After becoming famous at such a young age, the actor admitted he doesn’t want his children to follow in his footsteps.

The Harry Potter actor told Newsweek that he wouldn’t want that for his own children.

However, he would love for them to see what goes on behind the scenes.

“I want my kids, if and when they exist…I would love them to be around film sets.

The dad-to-be said film sets are “wonderful places” for children, but hopes his children avoid fame “at all costs”.

“I wouldn’t want fame for my kid,” he said.

He continued, “A dream would be for them to come onto a film set and be like, ’God, you know, I’d love to be in the art department. I’d love to be something in the crew.”

Radcliffe quickly became a household name when he landed the lead role in Harry Potter in 2001.
