The young heartthrob was applauded for his acting skills as he enacted the central role of Alan Strang suffering from a strange sexual fascination with horses. The actor, who insisted he had no intentions of abandoning the 'Harry Potter' series, told Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith that he couldn't believe how far he'd come since he began his acting career seven years ago.
"It's amazing. I never predicted when I first came to this studio what, like seven years ago now that I would actually be on Broadway doing a show," CBS News quoted him as saying. "You know, they're awesome, but I miss stuff about home but, ultimately, I'm 19 and I'm on Broadway and it's just kind of amazing," he added.
