Harry Potter Actor Cautious of Role Return
Daniel Radcliffe would feel “strange” playing Harry Potter again.
The 27-year-old actor shot to fame as the boy wizard in the movie series and though he would never rule out a return, he is “happy and secure” enough for someone else to portray the character. This is especially so if stage production Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which depicts his magical alter ego as a 40-year-old married father, gets turned into a film.
He said: “I’m never going to close the door. That would be a stupid thing to do. But I think I’ll be happy enough and secure enough to let someone else play it.”
At the moment it’s not even a concern because I’m too young to play the character, but even in 10 years’ time I would still feel strange about going back to it.”
And the British star joked he worried if he made a return it would be met with criticism and “sour” the original film series.
He said “there’s a part of me that’s like, some things are better left untouched. If we went back to Potter, there’s a chance we’d make what Star Wars: The Force Awakens was to the original Star Wars – but there’s also the chance that we’d make Phantom Menace. (DANIEL….)
