Daniel Radcliffe discusses playing Harry Potter in ‘Cursed Child’ movie

Fans are speculating that he could take the lead in a film adaptation of JK Rowling's stage play

Daniel Radcliffe has spoken about the possibility of returning to his most famous role.

JK Rowling‘s stage play Harry Potter And the Cursed Child, which launched in London’s West End this summer to overwhelmingly positive reviews, is set 19 years after the final novel in Rowling’s series. As fans have noted, it would be entirely feasible for Radcliffe, who is now 27, to take on the title role if the play is made into a movie.

Asked about speculation linking him to a Cursed Child film adaptation, Radcliffe told the BBC today (September 20): “No-one’s asked me about it and I definitely don’t think that I would do it at this point, certainly.”


“It’s only been six years [since I last played Harry Potter] and I’m really enjoying being able to do lots of different stuff at the moment,” he continued

However, Racliffe didn’t rule out a possibility of a return to the franchise further down the line, adding: “Maybe if 30 years had passed I would be thinking differently. They will be doing remakes, and I could play his dad, or something.”
