Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is looking forward to the wizard film franchise coming to an end so that he can accept other roles.
The 19-year-old has played the boy wizard since he was 11 and has turned down other acting ventures to concentrate on the fantasy films.
But with the final instalment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, set to wrap filming next year, Radcliffe is eyeing new roles, reports imdb.com.
"We're getting to the finish line. It's going to be very strange. At the moment, whenever someone calls up with a script for a really great part, and they say they're shooting in April, and I have to say I'm not available. To not have to do that anymore will be quite liberating," he said.
But Radcliffe doesn't regret his turn in the Harry Potter films because the income he has garnered from them has set him up for life.
"I never have to work again unless I want to do it. Once you're in the position where you can be very, very choosy as an actor, you have a duty to be very, very selective about what you do.
"Money is not what motivates me. It's never been a driving factor in my life or in the lives of anyone around me growing up. It's not even an issue," he added.
