Danielle Radcliffe has admitted he wouldn’t say no to donning the famous glasses of Harry Potter once again to play an adult version of the character.


Radcliffe, who’s currently rehearsing for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern at the Old Vic theatre, admitted he’d be open to a return to the role that made his name during an interview with Good Morning Britain this morning.

The star of film and theatre was clearly a little uncomfortable at being asked the question, especially as he’s admitted he hasn’t actually seen the play, but didn’t deny the prospect of him returning.


He said: 


Oh I don’t know. I’m not sure. That’s a long way off, isn’t it? Harry’s a bit older. I really don’t know, I think that’s all highly theoretical talk. If it was to become more than theoretical I would, of course, think about it.

Ever since the expanded Potter universe was announced fans have been speculating there could be a Cursed Child movie on the way, despite J.K. Rowling denying it vehemently.

Not that Potter fan’s are going to miss out, The Cursed Child has been doing very well in the West End selling out to record breaking crowds.

Meanwhile fans can look forward to more four more adventures starring Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander in the new Fantastic Beasts series.
