Los Angeles: Daniel Radcliffe says he hates taking time off between movies, especially because he lost all his confidence after he took a break post eight movies of the successful 'Harry Potter' franchise.

"With any kind of artistic thing, it's a muscle, like any athlete, and the moment you're not doing it, you lose all confidence," Radar Online quoted Radcliffe as saying.

"That's why I am terrible with down time. And actually what's been great about the last year and a half is that I have found a confidence. Before, basically by the time we got to the end of 'Potter', I was going 'I don't know if I can do this, I don't know if I'm good enough," the 23-year-old said.

He has since landed a role in 'A Young Doctor's Notebook', which is a TV adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov's novel A Country Doctor's Notebook. He says he was overjoyed when he was approached for the project as he is a fan of the Russian author.

"They had no idea, that I was this obsessive fan. I read it and immediately loved it, and read it again immediately afterwards, and then, for my 21st birthday I went to Russia to visit his apartment, as my present to myself," he said.
