Although Daniel is making every attempt to move away from the 'Harry Potter' tag, he recently dismissed speculation linking him with the part of Freddie Mercury in another upcoming biopic.

He said: "Everyone on the internet who I presume is saying I'm totally wrong for that part is correct. I AM complete
