Radcliffe Snubs University For Acting
Daniel Radcliffe won't be following his Harry Potter star co-star Emma Watson to university this autumn (09) - insisting he gets enough education from acting.
The two actors have furthered their education on film sets with private tutors since shooting to fame with the wizard series in 2001 and now Watson is making a move to the U.S., where she'll pursue a degree in liberal arts.
But 19-year-old Radcliffe has passed up the chance to attend college for now, insisting his acting coaches give him all the education he needs.
He says, "I want to keep working for as long as possible, just acting ideally. I'm also trying to continue my education as much as I can with an english tutor who comes on set... I've got quite a freakish memory. I'd like to think I'm a good student - not as good as Emma, she's got all these fantastic grades. But I'd like to think I can hold my own with most people."
