Daniel Radcliffe Would Consider Playing Harry Potter Again in the Future, But…
In a new interview with Radio Times, Radcliffe explained, “It would depend on the script. The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there! So I am saying, ‘No,’ for now but leaving room to backtrack in the future.”
With JK Rowling’s new play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child opening in July, as well as the highly-anticipated spin-off trilogy Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them starring Eddie Redmayne coming out in November, the buzz in the wizarding world is back.
Radcliffe spent a decade of his childhood playing Potter, the role that made him famous. As a result, he’s oftentimes thought of synonymously as Potter himself, even though he’s chosen projects with the intention of trying to prove otherwise (for example: taking on a role in the play Equus, in which he went nude).
Fans recently pointed out the connection between Potter and his latest role in the magician movie, Now You See Me 2.
“I actually didn’t consider the connection to magic until somebody pointed it out to me,” Radcliffe said. “They were like, ‘You are going to get loads of questions about magic again,’ and I went, ‘Oh, damn, I guess I am!’”
