Daniel Radcliffe talks getting his star and new role in 'Victor Frankenstein'

- James McAvoy plays Dr. Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe is Igor in the new movie ‘Victor Frankenstein.’ It's a retelling of the Frankenstein legend from Igor’s perspective.      

In the interview with Steve Edwards and Lisa Breckenridge, Daniel explains how he never really wanted to take a break from acting in film, especially when the 'Harry Potter' series ended. 

His desire to "keep working" led to different roles in other films and even some on stage.

Daniel also received the 2,565th star Thursday on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, 13 days before the release of his film.

"A few months ago I was walking along here with a couple of friends and just becoming sort of in awe and slightly overwhelmed by the names I was going to be joining,'' Radcliffe said at the late morning ceremony in front of the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.

"Growing up in England, you hear the word Hollywood and right after you picture the sign on the hill you picture these stars.'' 

Born July 23, 1989, in the Fulham area of London, Radcliffe made his acting debut when he was 10 years old in the title role in the 1999 BBC One production of "David Copperfield.'' Radcliffe's first film was the 2001 spy
thriller "The Tailor of Panama.''

Since completing the "Harry Potter'' film series in 2010, Radcliffe has appeared on Broadway in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,'' and "The Cripple of Inishmaan''; on screen in "The Woman in Black,'' the highest-grossing British horror film, and on British television in the four-part miniseries "A Young Doctor's Notebook'' and the made-for-television movie, "The Gamechangers.''

‘Victor Frankenstein’ opens in theaters the day before Thanksgiving.
