Everyone’s favourite boy wizard may not be turning his back on the wizarding world just yet.
Daniel Radcliffe has hinted at a possible return to Harry Potter on the stage or screen in the future.
And while an adult Potter is currently in London’s West End in JK Rowling’s play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – but with Jamie Parker in the title role – Radcliffe isn’t completely closing the door on a return to the role that made him famous.
He told the Radio Times:
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.Advertisement
Keeping his hand in with magic, his latest film role in Now You See Me 2 is a sequel to the 2013 hit about a group of illusionists – but he said he didn’t see any correlation until somebody pointed it out, the Mirror reports.
They were like, ‘You are going to get loads of questions about magic again’, and I went, ‘Oh, damn, I guess I am!’Advertisement
If people want to find a correlation, they will. I should probably pay more attention, but for me Now You See Me 2 was a new type of role. I have never played a part like this in a film like this and didn’t think about the connection to magic.
So while he may be dipping into different types of magical characters, the option for Radcliffe to reprise his role as an adult Potter still stands. And we hope it happens.
