Daniel Radcliffe discusses possible return as Harry Potter

"It would depend on the script," actor says

Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he would be potentially open to returning to his role as Harry Potter in the future, but not quite at the moment.

Radcliffe portrayed the character for eight films from 2001-2011, with actor Jamie Parker taking on the role for new stage show, Harry Potter And The Cursed Child.

Speaking about whether he would consider a return as Potter, Radcliffe told the Radio Times: “It would depend on the script. 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,” he added.

Radcliffe recently revealed why he probably won’t be seeing new the new Harry Potter: Cursed Child play.

“It would be a weird one. I could be completely wrong in this, but I feel like if I went to see it that night, there’s going to be a lot of Harry Potter fans there in the audience obviously and would that then become a thing?” he said.

“Would it be more about them watching me watch the show or would it take away from the show?” Radcliffe continued. “I would never want to do anything that would distract or take away from the show.”
