THEY grew up together making the Harry Potter films but Daniel Radcliffe admits he rarely speaks to Emma Watson nowadays and prefers to meet “new people”.
Daniel, 24, shared his formative years with Emma, also 24, who played swotty schoolmate Hermione to his boy wizard title role.
But the two have not remained close since completing the final film in 2011.
“I haven’t spoken to her in quite a while. I’m sure we’ll see each other at some point. We were all together for 10 years so we’re excited to meet new people now,” he tells US OK! magazine.
Daniel also admits he doesn’t miss playing JK Rowling’s most famous creation at all.
“I still sign Harry Potter books and still meet people who are huge fans of the books and the films. I don’t want that to drop off really,” he says.
“But I think people are starting to see me as an actor who came out of that series rather than just Harry Potter.”
The star, who has previously remained coy about discussing his private life, adds rather oddly that he’d never date a girl who was a Harry Potter fan.
“That would be a horrible move. It would make me very strange. I’ve always had relationships. It’s easy to tell if someone is genuine.”
He is linked with American actress Erin Darke, with whom he appeared in the film Kill Your Darlings in 2012.
Daniel split from production assistant Rosie Coker – whom he met on the sixth Harry Potter movie – after a two-year relationship in October 2012.
Presumably neither Erin nor Rosie are Harry Potter fans then!
