The Harry Potter actor said he loves acting too much to ever quit and would be happy to keep doing it until he draws his last breath.
He told The Guardian he would never retire as “acting’s too much fun”.
Daniel, 24, added: “I love it too much to stop. And it’s what I do, what I’ve grown up doing.”
“There’s an assumption that people make where if you’ve grown up on a set, surely you must be tired of that or want to go somewhere else,” added the actor. “But actually I’ve never known anything but being on film sets and I love them. They are places of immense comfort and familiarity.
“I hope I get to die on one. Honestly. Later rather than sooner.”
Daniel can soon be seen in beat generation film Kill Your Darlings as poet Allen Ginsberg. His other upcoming projects include romantic comedy The F Word and a new film adaptation of Frankenstein.
