Daniel Radcliffe hopes ‘Pottermore’ doesn’t involve a return for Harry

Harry Potter actor has no idea what the announcement will entail

Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe, has spoken of his hopes that J.K Rowling‘s soon to be announced ‘Pottermore’ won’t feature a return of his beloved character.

Radcliffe also revealed that he has absolutely no clue as to what the website, which features nothing more than a link to a YouTube announcement by the author, will ultimately be about.

Speaking to the LA Times about what the secret project may be, Daniel said, “As long as they don’t involve Harry, I’m quite happy to buy them.”

On the prospect that ‘Pottermore’ may be a continuation of the books about the boy wizard he added, “First of all, I don’t think that she will and second of all, I don’t know, the idea of going back to something after 10 or 20 years? It would feel a little self-defeating.”


The 21 year old actor has played the part of Harry Potter for almost half of his life, since he won the role of the orphaned wizard in 2001.

Since 2007, Radcliffe has attempted to branch out from this famous role with forays into theatre with Equus – for which he received glowing reviews – and, most recently, in the Broadway adaptation of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

His first feature film after the final Potter movie will be the lead in Susan Hill‘s The Woman In Black.

The ‘Pottermore’ announcement will be made this Thursday, June 23 at midday (BST).

The final film Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows: Part Two is due for UK release on July 14.
