After 10 years of playing Harry Potter, it seems Daniel Radcliffe is having a little trouble breaking character.
In a humorous new Funny or Die video, the 21-year-old actor claims that he really is the boy wizard and is just playing the role of a man named Daniel Radcliffe.
"It was probably around the time of the fourth film that I kind of started to realize that I was Harry," he explains in a mock interview. "I thought I was an actor playing a wizard, but really, I was a wizard playing an actor."
Uh… so how does all that work?
"I go from my Harry life, when I am me, and then I walk out of the room, and then I am Dan, the actor," he says. "Dan is a fantastic character who I really enjoy - I've really enjoyed playing him. And this kind of split reality which I live on, which we all live on, it was a revelation when I discovered that that's how the world works."
Now that Harry has defeated all of the evildoers, he just "kind of chills out a lot. I talk to women. Tell them that I'm Harry and see where that gets me."
Despite ridding the world of dark forces, it's Harry's quidditch skills that make him most proud. "I've spoken to at least two or three professional quid players who think any team would be lucky to have me," he boasts.
