During an interview with media outlet CBS Tom Felton reflected back on working with Daniel Radcliffe and said-

“Daniel brings a certain energy to any room that he’s in. But it was important to me, looking back, how important his enthusiasm and his eventual professionalism run down the ranks, if you will. He could’ve very much easily, I think, coasted a lot of those years. And it seemed to me, on set with him, that he was always up for bringing as much as he can to the table, always being collaborative. And I think he learned that the same way that I did: from the other chaps around us.”

Despite becoming an overnight star in the Harry Potter franchise, Daniel Radcliffe had a tough time getting conventional projects for a long time. He took a sabbatical from his acting career to enjoy the bliss of Fatherhood with his 38-year-old girlfriend Erin Drake.
