‘”There was definitely a time when I was coming out of Potter into the real world, and suddenly I was in a world when I was not in that consistency anymore,” he stated during an interview on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast. “I was living alone, and I think I was really freaked out… I drank a lot, as has been recorded, but I think that was more to do with going out in public and having a battle within me of thinking, ‘No I can have a totally normal life.’”

The 26-year-old performer, who was cast as the boy wizard when he was just 10, stated that he has been sober since 2013, explaining, “You get bored waking up feeling like that.”
