Daniel Radcliffe not interested in revisiting Harry Potter role
TVC E. Pottermania may be alive and well thanks to upcoming Harry Potter spinoff film “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them” and a hit London play, but actor Daniel Radcliffe says he has no interest in revisiting his role as the boy wizard.
Asked about speculation that there could be a movie version of the London play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” Radcliffe, 27, said no-one had contacted him about a new film.
“Nobody has said anything to me about … revitalizing the films, so I don’t know,” Radcliffe told Reuters in London on Friday.
“It’s not something I think I’d be interested in, and also if they do it now I feel they should just cast the people from the play,” said Radcliffe, who was just 11 years old when he was cast as Potter.
Radcliffe was in London to open a three-day entertainment festival of films and family activities, including screenings of his two most recent indie movies “Swiss Army Man” and “Imperium.”
