"The goal is to make myself an actor rather than just one character. I think that's starting to happen," he said. The actor said he is so self-critical that he can only bring himself to watch the fifth and eighth films in the magical franchise.
"I think it's important to be your own toughest critic because that way you'll always be driven to get better.

I was unable to see anything good, but now I'm starting to," he added.
