Don't try too hard to be something you're not.
I think one of my favorite things to do is just lock myself up in a small room and listen to music and watch films for a day. Also I just like seeing my friends. We have pizza parties which means I get four friends round, we eat a pizza and we're really lazy and we play PlayStation.
I'm also a fan of ridiculously coloured and patterned socks.
I was in the bath at the time, and my dad came running in and said, 'Guess who they want to play Harry Potter!?' and I started to cry. It was probably the best moment of my life.
Some people think I am gay, which I think is awesome.
Personally, I prefer the dark side.
I'm not clumsy, I'm just accident prone.
I'm not clumsy, I'm accident-prone!
The nerds are the ones that make the films and do loads of other really cool stuff in their life.
I'm not an easy person to love. There are lots of times when I'm a very good boyfriend, but there are times when I'm useless. I mean, I'm a mess around the house. I talk nonstop. I become obsessed with things.
And I'm slightly in love with Scarlett Johansson: she's just stunning. And she's bright, which is incredibly sexy.
There's no shame in enjoying a quiet life. And that's been the realization of the past few years for me.
I'm an atheist, but I'm very relaxed about it. I don't preach my atheism, but I have a huge amount of respect for people like Richard Dawkins who do.
My dad grew up in Banbridge, Northern Ireland, desperate to get to London. I grew up in London, so I don't know what it's like to yearn for the big city from a small town.
No. I am not a royalist. Not at all. I am definitely a republican in the British sense of the word. I just don't see the use of the monarchy though I'm fierce patriot. I'm proud proud proud of being English, but I think the monarchy symbolizes a lot of what was wrong with the country.
There is something inherently valuable about being a misfit. It's not to say that every person who has artistic talent was a social outcast, but there is definitely a value for identifying yourself differently and being proud that you are different.
I'm getting better now, but I used to be incredibly awkward with girls. I think any guy who says 'I've never had an awkward moment with a girl' is a liar.
When I get into trouble at school I'd like to take an invisibility cloak, drape it over me and sneak out the door. Or I'd like to have a 3 headed-dog because then no one would argue with me.
There's never enough time to do nothing!
I used to joke I was a point-and-click actor. My whole process has been about trusting your instincts and hitting your mark.
I don't want anyone to ever say that I don't belong where I am.
I sort of try to read the books when they come out impartially and not make up my mind, but the fact is when I was reading the sixth, 'Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince', there were bits in there where I was going, 'God, I would love to do that because it's so good'.
England is my home. London is my home. New York feels like, if I have to spend a year living in an unfamiliar city, this is a pretty lovely one to spend a year in, but I will be going home at the end of it, certainly.
Fame is damaging when people become reliant on it for their sense of self, and their identity, when fame is linked to how you see yourself.
As much as I would love to be a person that goes to parties and has a couple of drinks and has a nice time, that doesn't work for me. I'd just rather sit at home and read, or go out to dinner with someone, or talk to someone I love, or talk to somebody that makes me laugh.
I've never been one of the cool people at school, but then again, I don't get the people who are cool. It's not that I don't like them, it's just that they don't interest me.
The thought of dancing scared me. A lot. Because I have absolutely no aptitude for it.
I was fortunate enough to meet Sophie Dahl. And I'm slightly in love with Scarlett Johansson: she's just stunning. And she's bright, which is incredibly sexy.
I just moved into the world of Xbox Live. And I've discovered that everyone on the Internet is a lot better than me. I spent half an hour the other day designing a boxer, and I got knocked out twice in the first round.
When you're seventeen to early twenties, that's the time you're trying to work out who you are. If you're trying to make some kind of artistic or creative impact, that's the age when you start to figure out how to do that.
A friend often says I'm an old man in a young man's husk. I like that. I am old-fashioned in some ways.
I'm very comfortable discussing my personal life, because it's so boring.
Fans are really important for me. And if they take pains to write me, it's the minimum that I answer myself.
I'm very interested in religion as something to study, but I'm not a religious person in the slightest.
Also I just think I've been lucky enough to have great parents, and I've had good people around me who have always been honest with me, who would give me a purely metaphorical slap if I ever got too big for my boots.
I don't know what to do with it. I'm very fortunate to have it, and it gives you room to maneuver. But the main thing about having money is it means you don't have to worry about it. And that for me is a lovely thing. It's not for fast cars and hookers.
My parents were what I like to call proper musical fans. Lots of Sondheim was played in the car.
I basically have the diet of a 19th-century Irish navy, apart from the litre of stout a day. It's meat and potatoes and bread and cheese: those are my four food groups.
I mean I've seen 3D films so far and I think it's a long way to go before they replace actors. It's a funny thing with 3D, I haven't quite got it yet. Yet.
You pick projects for the part, the director, and the script. I just want to do different, interesting stuff.
I'm possibly a very morbid person but I think about death a lot.
I know I'm not a coal miner, but I do long hours and I never complain, and there is nowhere else I'd rather be. So, yeah, that's how I'd define myself. I want to do it right, and prove people wrong once and for all about the myth of child stars.
I definitely think that theatre is something I'll keep coming back to in my career for as long as I can. I also think theatre's something you have to be very fit to do. I am fairly fit, but I don't think I could do it all the time.
My parents are left-wing, and I would describe myself as that. But also, you know what? I wouldn't describe myself as that. Because I don't have to. Because I'm not a political party. Most people are a little bit of each, and we change our mind on various issues.
One of the things that I cannot fathom is young actors who will not audition and won't read.
How irritating it must be for people, to be bombarded with me!
People do incredible things for love, particularly for unrequited love.
Being self-critical is good; being self-hating is destructive. There's a very fine line there somewhere, and I walk it carefully.
There's no blueprint for where I should be. I see myself as a young, good actor who still has a lot to learn. There's nobody at any point in their career who is the finished article.
I like science and I love gym. Oh, and I like art, but I'm really bad at it. I'm just a terrible drawer. I can't draw a circle. Even with a ruler, I can't draw a straight line.
There were a few years there when I was just so enamored with the idea of living some sort of famous person's lifestyle that really isn't suited to me.
I met Elijah Wood once, I met Peter Jackson, I met Orlando Bloom, and they're all really cool.
Both of my parents have been actors; there were a lot of show tunes on in the car all of the time. I grew up with that.
It's very rare that I get stopped or get asked for an autograph or anything - none of which I mind - but people don't really care that much.
Religion leaves no room for human complexity.
My mom and dad were actors when they were younger and had a horrible experience of it. My dad became a literary agent and my mom a casting director.
I suppose whenever you go through periods of transition, or in a way, it's a very definite closing of a certain chapter of your life - I suppose those times are always going to be both very upsetting and also very exciting by the very nature because things are changing and you don't know what's going to happen.
I don't want to say I'll never play someone with a cockney accent, but I think I would be irritated by me doing it.
That's why I don't understand why actors become arrogant and are completely unapproachable - because as an actor, the most valuable thing you can do is talk to people and hear their stories, because it'll all come in handy.
I think I tried to steal a Mars bar once from a shop but then I went and put it back.
I pretty much left full-time, formal education when I was 11, so that was when I was taken out of the school system... The longest stretch I would go back for was a term and a half when I was about 14.
A lot of modern horror can leave me cold, and I'm not good with blood and gore and all that stuff. It's not fun for me. There's nothing entertaining about watching a film like that.
I know me, and I know that I'm not somebody that particularly merits a lot of screaming and shouting. And there's nothing special about me as opposed to hundreds of thousands of other people everywhere.
I've not got a girlfriend at the moment. Somebody said, 'Do you worry girls are just giving you attention because of who you are?' I was like, 'I'm 17, it's wonderful.'
I'm not much of a cake person.
I'm quite confident, but I don't fancy myself. I don't really care about how I look.
I think it's useful, as a famous person, to have as little separation between the perception of you and how you really are - because otherwise I'd be sitting here thinking I'm keeping secrets, and wondering when you're going to find out.
I think, as an actor, and particularly if you are playing the lead in something, you have to view yourself as the head of department for the cast. All of the other departments are accountable and have somebody at the helm who is leading them all the time, and I don't think that the actors should be any different.
I think any actor worth their salt wants to show as much versatility as they possibly can.
I don't know why that is, but English politics is just so overly white. It's very much about the class structure.
Normally I sit there in the films really hating watching myself. Loving watching the films, hating watching myself.
When you get as lucky as I got, you have to work as hard as possible to earn that luck.
There are two types of poets: People who write poetically about their lives, and poets that live poetically and write about it.
Poetry is something I love to do. Good poetry has an amazing ability to be communicative before it's even understood. I get emotional just from the beauty of words.
I've always had, like, from the age of about 11, I've had such an intolerance for bad behaviour of actors that I don't think I was ever going to be that person.
I'm thrilled of the acceptance I get abroad. The people are so hearty, warm and grateful and I feel privileged having seen so many countries and some of the greatest monuments.
I've always thought that as long as directors and casting directors don't see me as just Harry Potter, I'll be OK. People have shown a lot of faith in me, and I owe them a huge debt. They're letting me prove that I'm serious about this.
My taste in the films I've taken as an actor is similar to what I'd do a director or writer: all quite odd, challenging stuff, slightly off-the-wall.
It's mainly about working hard and proving to people you're serious about it, and stretching yourself and learning. The mistake a lot of actors make, particularly young ones, is allowing themselves to feel that they're the finished articles, the bee's knees, and it's not true.
And well historically it's never been a good thing to compare yourself to biblical characters.
My idea of relaxation is not lying down by a beach. I have to move around, do stuff. Though I'm a massive quiz show person.
My dad believes in God, I think. I'm not sure if my mom does. I don't.
I'm a huge fan of Brad Pitt. He could have done rom-coms his entire career, but he took it in a different direction.
I like the idea of not having to do stuff for the money, and if I want to, I can pick indie projects for the rest of my life and be quite happy doing that.
The most wonderful thing I hear is people coming up and saying 'Thank you for my childhood', which still blows my mind but is very sweet.
I don't know where my romanticism comes from. My mom and dad would read to me a lot. 'Treasure Island,' 'Robinson Crusoe,' tales of chivalry and knights, things like that. Those are the stories I loved growing up.
I had one relative who passed away but fortunately none others. So my sort of experience of it is quite limited, thankfully.
I didn't have that normal teenage period when you build up your friends in your area and you have a social circle.
Stage is much more intimidating than going before the cameras, because you can really screw up, and can't do a retake.
I'm always amazed at the way some actors' behaviour is truly disgusting. That's one thing that will never happen on one of my sets if I ever direct.
I think of myself as being Jewish and Irish, despite the fact that I'm English.
My dad's got a brilliant eye for scripts 'cos he's a literary agent. He and my agent read a load of scripts and filter them.
I would consider doing any part as long as the script is good and the film has an interesting director.
If I can make a career for myself after Potter, and it goes well, and is varied and with longevity, then that puts to bed the 'child actors argument'.
Some actresses are just insane. I've never worked with a nasty actress - they're all absolutely delightful. But completely barking.
I would love to work in America. I wouldn't love to live there, but I'd love to experience working there.
I'm not a religious person. My mom was of Jewish blood and my dad was Protestant.
The stories I'm interested in are challenging ones, and maybe that requires a little bit more of you. I love my job and I want to earn the right to do it every single day.
I was very much a product of the public-school system. There was only one other kid in my class who had parents not involved in the stock market or law.
If I die on a film set when I'm 80, I'll be happy with that.
