Dan Stevens’ children are not impressed by his fame.

The 34-year-old actor has daughter Willow, seven and son Aubrey, four, with wife Susie Hariet and admitted that they don’t care about his career.

He told PEOPLE: “They’re pretty level-headed about it so far. My daughter thinks it’s very funny that there are premieres, people get excited to see us all, she doesn’t quite understand why.

“My daughter was five when we filmed this, so just perfect age to walk into a ballroom full of princesses and freak out. They’ve now seen the film and it’s a pretty magical experience.

“My son was with a friend the other day and Beast and Belle were on the cover of a magazine and his friend was getting very excited, there we were, and my son just went, ‘Yeah that’s just my dad in a suit’. He’s not that fazed.”

However, Dan revealed they were quite “freaked out” when he wore his ‘Beauty and the Beast’ character’s fangs at home while rehearsing to play the Beast.

He said: “I used the fangs in the pre-production exploration to find the voice, to find the shape of the mouth. I did get to take those home and play with those and yeah, freaked my kids out a bit.

“But they kind of grew to love them. They would request that I would put them in and freak their friends out. I still have them. They’re great at Halloween.”
