However the global star admitted he has never felt ‘comfortable’ with being famous and considered turning his hand to another trade.

He said: ‘I’ve always toyed with the idea of walking away from acting and becoming a dad has increased those feelings. Don’t get me wrong, I love working on [the horror series] Servant and feel extremely comfortable in a TV environment.

‘But Potter happened at such a young age and I found it hard to deal with the fame side of things. If I ever do see Dan [Radcliffe] or Emma [Watson], fame is the one thing we never talk about.

‘There’s no way I would compare us to the Beatles, but they always said it was impossible to describe what it was like being a Beatle unless you were there. Maybe us three experienced a tiny bit of that.’

But Rupert insisted he will always be eternally grateful to the Potter fans and would never reject their approaches.

He added: ‘I’m eternally grateful to the Potter fans and never refuse a selfie, but I do sometimes miss my anonymity. At least lockdown allowed me to wear a mask. I did think of having one done with Dan’s face on it.’

If he did quit acting, the British star would like to take up a hands-on trade.

He told the Sunday Times magazine: ‘It would be nice to go off and do something completely different, like building or carpentry. Before lockdown I was always hanging around in B&Q, buying more tools.

‘And I’ve just started my own miniature pottery production line. If Wednesday’s napping I throw some clay on my wheel and make tiny jugs and bowls.’ 

Earlier this month Rupert spoke of the love he has for his little girl with  Comicbook.com, he said: ‘It was something I never really had much of an idea of, that kind of love. It’s a very different love.

‘It’s very strange. It definitely has kind of changed my perspective on things but also in a helpful way.’  

In November, Rupert broke Instagram when he joined the social media platform and posted a photo of himself cradling his then six-month-old daughter with the back of her head facing the camera.

He racked up more than one million likes in just four hours.
