Daniel Radcliffe won’t rule out return to Harry Potter
The 26-year-old star of all eight Harry Potter films recently told an interviewer that although he was saying no “for now”, he was “leaving room to backtrack in the future”.
The final film in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, was released in July 2011 and a new play written by JK Rowling, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, is currently delighting audiences in the West End. There appear to be no current plans to return the character to the big screen but Radcliffe didn’t want to scupper his chance in the future.
He commented, “The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary, but then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo [in Star Wars], and look what happened there.”
Daniel Radcliffe will star as a magician in Now You See Me 2 with Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg. Although not exactly the same type of magic, Radcliffe hadn’t noticed the connection with his most famous character until somebody else pointed it out to him:
“They were like, ‘You are going to get loads of questions about magic again,’ and I went, ‘Oh, damn, I guess I am!'”
