Daniel Radcliffe is enjoying his post-Harry Potter career, but he hasn’t completely shelved the idea of someday coming back to the role that made him famous. The British actor spoke to Radio Times about the possibility of playing an adult Harry.
“It would depend on the script,” he said. “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.”
Interest in the magical world of the witches and wizards created by J.K. Rowling hasn’t waned in the years after her record-breaking books hit the big screen. A new play titled Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is currently playing to sold-out crowds in London’s Palace Theater and a book of the scripts is set to be released on July 31, as well as the upcoming release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, starring Eddie Redmayne as the fictional author Newt Scamander, which opens in theaters on November 18.
There’s no telling where the author-turned-screenwriter will take the tales of the boy wizard in the coming years, but one thing is for sure, as long as Rowling continues to pen tales about the students from Hogwarts, there is sure to be a worthy script in the future for Radcliffe to consider.
