Daniel Radcliffe has said he is envious of the variety of projects fellow British actors Aaron Johnson and Eddie Redmayne have been involved with.

The 24-year-old actor, who shot to fame as Harry Potter, told the Television Critics Association Summer Tour in Beverly Hills, "Obviously there's a part of me that... I think it is connected to Potter, but maybe not in the way that everyone thinks, where everyone kind of just thinks, 'Oh, he's doing all this to put that behind him and get away from it'.

"And actually, I think what it is more is that because I played one character for such a long time, and particularly towards the end of that 10 year period I started seeing like other British actors, you know, Aaron Johnson and Eddie Redmayne, Ben Wishaw, and lots of people I sort of look up to, who go off and do, do loads of different projects and try lots of different things.

"I think it's sort of, you know, there's a little bit of envy and it sort of builds up inside yourself – that desire to just try as many different things as possible.

He concluded, "So yeah, I guess now that I'm in a position that I can do that... I'm trying to while the going's good."
