-- The "Harry Potter" franchise ended in theaters with "The Deathly Hallows: Part 2" in 2011 but the film's star Daniel Radcliffe admits it was tough readjusting to reality.
The 26-year-old actor was candid about the end of "Potter" on the "WTF Podcast with Marc Maron" earlier this week.
Maron brought up the fact that after a huge hit like "Harry Potter," the young actor must have been nervous about the stigma.
"That's always going to be that. When I die, that will be the first line in my obituary," Radcliffe joked.
He said fans will even ask him to sign photos as "Harry," not Daniel.
“There was definitely a time when I was coming out of 'Potter' and I was into the real world, suddenly I was in a world where I'm not going to have that consistency anymore. I'm not going to see all those people every year. I'm not going to have my friends around me all the time," he said.
"I was pretty inconsolable on the last day of 'Potter' ... I was worried. I was living alone, and I think I was really freaked out,” he added. "I drank a lot, as has been recorded.”
Radcliffe, who was cast as Harry Potter at the age of 10, explained that he absolutely loves being on film sets and that is what scared him the most -- that he might not get to pursue his passion anymore.
As for the alcohol, he explained he was out at pubs trying to just hang with people and that his excess “was more to do with going out in public and having a battle in me to be like 'No, I can have a totally normal life man.' I haven't had a drink now for over two years.”
Since then, Radcliffe says he's "simplified" his life and that he's been lucky to get challenging roles in movies like "Kill Your Darlings."
"I work and I'm really lucky," he said. "This year I've done two-and-a half movies and a TV film."
Radcliffe has said in the past that he's been sober since 2013.
His new movie "Victor Frankenstein" is out next week.
