A soundbite of StarLifestyle's interview:

For all of you in Malaysia: Miracle Workers airs every Wednesday at 10.05pm on Warner TV (the first episode premiered on 6th March).

Harry Potter:
“I remember having a really lovely time; I remember loving being on set and making the films. And the press (tours) we would do, we would go to America or Japan when we were very young, and it was overwhelming and exciting,”
About staying grounded
“I had good people around me letting me know that the work is the important part and the fame, whether you feel good or bad about it, should never be the focus of your ambitions. Your ambitions should be to work hard and achieve good things in the work you do.”
About starring in independent films
“It’s not a deliberate decision (to stay away from blockbuster films). I go where the scripts are. It’s hard to get anyone to spend money on (scripts that are) too big of a risk.

“A lot of the big studios, I find the scripts are not as challenging or weird or interesting as the stuff they make in the indie world or even in the TV world.

“So the things that I gravitate to, so far they just happen to be in the indie world. But if there’s something happening in the studios and I love the script, I would love to be a part of some crazy big movie. It’s just about waiting for the right script,”
About Miracle Workers and being executive producer
“In our world, Heaven is a corporation that governs the Earth and God is our CEO who has become kind of lazy and disillusioned. It’s kind of about what it means to work in an office in a big company that has kind of got out of control.

“I also think there’s also a huge amount of love for humanity and I love that about it,”
“I think being on the other side made me feel an even bigger sense of respect for actors. I love acting and I love what we do. Seeing so many people come in and audition and do something so brilliant was really inspiring and wonderful,”
On turning 30
“I would like to start directing in my 30s and try to get at least one film made before I turn 40.
“And at some point, not immediately, but in a few years from now, I’ll probably be thinking about starting a family.”
“So to get to my 40s and be a dad and have directed one film, I think I’d be very happy.”
He also shares he hopes to introduce his future kids to the Harry Potter films.
“I’ll make sure they read the book first before they start watching their dad in the films. I’d like to think they’ll watch the films when I’m older. Or there’s a chance that somebody would’ve remade the films by then and there’s a whole new Harry Potter to watch.”
