Daniel Radcliffe has expressed what at first might appear to be a rather morbid wish.
In an interview with The Guardian, the actor revealed that he's so at home on film sets, he'd quite like to die on one.
But Harry Potter fans need not despair, the 24-year-old actor has no plans for that to happen any time soon.
"There's an assumption that people make where if you've grown up on a set, surely you must be tired of that or want to go somewhere else," he told The Guardian.
"But actually, I've never known anything but being on film sets and I love them. They are places of immense comfort and familiarity."
"I hope I get to die on one. Honestly. Though later rather than sooner," he added.
The actor will next be seen portraying real-life beat generation poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings (2013), which tells the story of events leading up to David Kammerer's death in 1944.
And Radcliffe seems to be enjoying the freedom he has with roles post-Potter.
"I can't put it down to anything more than that I've got weird taste," he said. "There have been plenty of weird roles so far, and more to come, I hope."
"I pick films based on scripts and directors and parts. I think I've got good taste, but it's slightly left of centre. I'm not interested in making films I've seen before. There's nothing more exciting to me when I read a script than originality. That's all it's governed by; there's no master plan to distance myself from Potter with every role."
