, and on Sky drama

A Young Doctor's Notebook.

He recently addressed the possibility of returning to the big screen as his spectacle-wearing alter ego when author J.K Rowling shared a short, spin-off story on the Pottermore website. "My inclination is to say 'no' because I don't think it's even a hypothetical at the moment," he said via satellite link at the Television Critics Association's Summer Press Tour.


The 25-year-old actor recently talked about his romantic side to


magazine and revealed that his thoughts on marriage: "It seems like the most romantic thing you can do is stand up in front of all your friends and say that you love this person..."He later added: "At the same time,

the amount of stress that goes with a wedding... I don’t know."

Daniel met his current girlfriend Erin Darke in 2012 on the set of

Kill Your Darlings

but told the magazine that he received his best piece of advice from Imelda Staunton on the set of

Harry Potter:

"I had a girlfriend, and we’d said, 'Oh, we’ll not do Valentine’s Day. Don’t do any of that.' I was relaying that to Imelda, and she told me that no matter what any girl says, 'just do something'."

Horns is out in the UK on 31 October.
