Daniel Radcliffe chatted with the AP and USA Today at the Toronto Film Festival the last few days about his new projects, including the premieres of Horns, The F Word, and Kill Your Darlings, and how he has evolved as an actor. Highlights are below.

Associated Press:

"You have to make films based on your own instincts ... I have to make the kind of films that I would want to see," Radcliffe [said].

"It's not so much a process or a strategy. It's about what scripts you get sent. So when I read "Horns," I was immediately passionate about it, and I wanted to play this part and knew I could have an interesting take on it," Radcliffe said.

"What my fan base wants me to do is not the most effective way of forging a career, or certainly not the most honest way of doing it. You got to remember that I did 'Equus' and that was a pretty big deal."

"What you got to remember about the Potter audience is that they grew up with me, and a lot of them are now my age or older. They want to see dark, challenging material as much as anyone else does," Radcliffe said.

USA Today:

"I've got three films. Benedict Cumberbatch has three movies. I'm not the only one, I'd like to point that out," says Radcliffe, 24. "You get excited. My films could not be more different. That's what's exciting to me. I've been one thing for so long. So far so good."

Is there anything he wouldn't do? "You'd have to write it first, and then I'd tell you. I can't think of something that would be terrible enough for me to say no," he says with a smile.

"I'm really excited for people to start seeing these films that I've done. I've been talking about them for a year and a half. It's been a long process of telling people how good they're going to be," he says.
