(CBS) There's a strong likelihood that Daniel Radcliffe will forever tied to his most famous role - playing the titular character in the "Harry Potter" films. But, as he told CBSNews.com at a New York screening of his new thriller, "The Woman in Black," he doesn't seem to mind the constant mentions of Potter during his interviews.

"I would have been a fool if I thought that I would not be asked those questions," Radcliffe, 22, said. "And it's completely fine."

He added, "I'm still incredibly proud of my time on those ["Harry Potter"] movies...and don't want to not be associated with them."

In "The Woman in Black," adapted from Susan Hill's 1983 novel, Radcliffe stars as a young father and lawyer who encounters a vengeful ghost in a remote manor. The star warned his younger fans, "If you're under 12, don't see this film...It's really scary and you will be kept up at night."

"The Woman in Black," which is a CBS Films production, opens in theaters on Friday.
