"Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe – who played the title character in the wizard franchise – is determined to settle down and start a family, and plans to take time away from the film industry when he does become a parent.

He said: "I've got kids to have at some point. They're going to keep me busy if I do – which I hope I do at some point. I'm not planning on it soon, but that’s one of the things I'm really looking forward to doing."

The 20-year-old actor – who is in an on/off relationship with Laura O'Toole - is not the only "Harry Potter" star wondering about life after the film series finishes.

Daniel’s co-star Rupert Grint – who portrays Harry’s best friend Ron Weasley – is scared about spending the rest of his life in the “real world."

He explained: "It is quite scary when this all ends because we're stepping out into the real world – it is quite a bubble I suppose, we've had these films to do every year and it's become quite a routine. I'm definitely going to miss it. It's been a great 10 years.

 "I am quite keen to move on and see what else is out there."

Radcliffe and Grint – along with their co-star Emma Watson, who plays their witch friend Hermione Granger – are currently working on the final two installations from the film series.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" is due out next year, and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" will be released in 2011.
