On being an energetic child:
"I don't think there's been a time in my life when I haven't gone up the stairs two at a time. I run everywhere. I didn't sleep a full night until I was about eight. If there was a sack race at school I's practice with a pillowcase on the stairs. It's why my parents didn't have any more kids. I was enough, a handful. I was very sweet, polite and loved the company of adults from a young age, but all my school reports said the same thing: 'Dan's lovely, but he's crap at the work and he talks too much."
On whether he ever wanted to end 'Harry Potter' prematurely:
"Not really. Even in the darkest moments of my teenage years there was never a time when I thought, 'I wish I'd never done this'. Okay, maybe once. Around the sixth film we found out my parents were being followed by a private investigator. That was a hard time and I thought, 'This wouldn't be happening if I wasn't who I was'. But other than that, no: it's given me everything, every opportunity I will ever get."
On whether he's ever had sex with, kissed or fancied another guy:
"No. I can quite happily say someone is handsome, good looking and I can see why someone would want to f*** them, but I've never felt that way about a man myself. There is that moment in your late teens when you ask yourself the question, 'Am I?' But I wasn't."
On a guy he's had a crush on:
"Well, this year I have a talent crush on Ryan Gosling. I think he's fantastic and you know he'd be nice afterwards. He seems smart. If I was gay I would go for a smart man."
