Daniel Radcliffe 'fascinated by archaeology'

Daniel Radcliffe wants to study archaeology.

The 21-year-old actor is sad that the Harry Potter movie series - in which he has played the titular boy wizard in all eight films - is coming to a close, but happy he will now have more free time to pursue his interests.

He said: "I watch a huge amount of stuff on the Discovery Channel and have started considering doing an Open University course because I'm becoming more and more fascinated by archaeology.

"So yes, as sad as I am to say goodbye to Harry, I'm really excited to see what the future holds."

While Daniel is looking forward to pursuing other interests, fans can expect not to see him getting involved in sport as he admits he is "hopeless".

He told Britain's Hello! magazine: "I'm fit. I can run and I'm very agile but in terms of sports, I've always been pretty rubbish.

"I love cricket but I'm abysmal at it. What I love about cricket is there's a place for hopeless enthusiasts and that's what I am.

"If nothing else, I can bring out the half-time oranges and keep score."
