Daniel Radcliffe, who rose to popularity as a teenager, would not want his children to go through the same thing.
The actor, best known for playing Harry Potter in the Harry Potter film series, is currently acting in the upcoming biography titled “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” about the polka-playing singer. The 33-year-old thought about whether he would like his children to follow in his well-known footsteps on Monday.
“If and when my children exist, I want them to… I would really like for children to be around movie sets,” he told Newsweek. For someone to walk into a movie set and declare, “God, you know, I’d love to be in the art department,” would be a dream. I would adore a position on the crew. This, but not entirely from that.
When Radcliffe was just 10 years old, he started acting. He became a global celebrity at the age of 11 when he was cast in the J.K. Rowling fantasy bestseller “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.”

In addition to being a box office success, Radcliffe’s late youth was covered by the eight-film series, which prepared him for life. Radcliffe has a reported net worth with an annual salary of $15 million.
According to Radcliffe, he ‘obviously’ still finds acting to be enjoyable.
But even so, he continued, “I wouldn’t want celebrity for my child.”
In a previous interview, Radcliffe opened up about how, as a teen, he turned to alcohol to help him deal with fame. The source noted that he turned 22 and became sober in 2010.
