“You know, now I feel sort of obliged to come out with something sort of profound and philosophical. I think possibly, also, what Tom is alluding to is the fact that I’ve got, I think I’ve got a work ethic.  Which also, to the effect, Tom has, and a lot of us have as well. We love our jobs and we don’t take anything for granted.  There’s nowhere I would rather be.  Over the last 10 years, it’s been some of the most surreal, bizarre moments of my life, but in a lovely way.  There’s certainly nothing I would have swapped it for.”

He further continued-

“And, you know, I think in terms of all the media attention that you get and all that stuff, I think the one thing you have to be careful of is that you don’t have…that fame does not become a part of your identity. You have to find out who you are aside from what the media say you are.  If you’ve become reliant on them for kind of a sense of self, then you’re really screwed. So yeah, I mean I think we’ve all done quite well in terms of not believing the hype about ourselves and just sort of getting on with our jobs and appreciating that we’re very lucky to be there.”

The Harry Potter series is available for streaming on Amazon Prime.
