Sean: (On starring in the 'Harry Potter' films) Every now and again I have to check myself- it's strange to remember that you were in what was, at the time, the second biggest movie ever at the box office.
Sean: I have no interest in becoming famous. Fame is a byproduct of what ou do; it's not something you set out to be.
Sean: It can be a bit irritating when someone asks me how the new film's coming along when I haven't worked on Harry Potter for two years. Generally speaking, I have no problem with it. Most actors go through their careers without ever being involved in something so spectacular, so I think it would be a bit ignorant of me to object to being associated with it. Harry Potter is an amazing thing. I'm not just being diplomatic here either. I'm still reminded regularly of what a unique experience it was.
Sean: You know what I hate? People who buy big ol' 4x4's when they never do anything with their car that's more demanding than taking the kids to school.
Sean : (When asked what magical item would he really use) They would all be dangerous amounts of fun but I think flying takes the cake. Flying while invisible could be a laugh.
