Daniel Radcliffe Gets Super Real About Playing Harry Potter Again
You've likely heard rumors that sway between opposite extremes. Depending on who you talk to, Daniel Radcliffe is either super down to play Harry Potter or he's 100 percent against it. But what's the truth?
While it's been five years since Radcliffe last played the iconic glasses-wearing, scar-bearing lead in the "Harry Potter" films, it looks like he might be open to reprising the role in the near future. But, as Radcliffe explained, certain stars would have to align for him to jump back into the wizarding world.
According to Glamour, Daniel Radcliffe told Britain's 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.
Backtrack all you want, Harry--er, Daniel.
If your heart is beating uncontrollably at the thought of another "Harry Potter" movie, simmer down. With the good news, he also revealed a little bit of a letdown, saying he will not go out to see "Cursed Child," the play that picks up almost two decades after the Battle of Hogwarts and focuses on Harry's kids. As Radcliffe explained to Radio Times,
I want to see the show, I am genuinely intrigued and I hear it's fantastic. I just feel like sitting in an audience that will, for the most part of the near future, be very enthusiastic Harry Potter fans might not be a… relaxing way to see a show. So, I guess, not for the time being.
