Daniel Radcliffe has revealed that he wouldn’t be opposed to reprising his role as young wizard Harry Potter in a future reboot, if everything presented itself in a way he saw appropriate. Speaking in an interview with the Radio Times, the British actor opened up about the possibility stating that while it’s unlikely, he’d never say never.
“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,” he told the publication. “So I am saying ‘No’ for now, but leaving room to backtrack in the future.”
Despite being open to returning to the Harry Potter universe if the opportunity came along, Radcliffe, 26, recently admitted that he’d be in no rush to see JK Rowling’s West End musical Harry Potter And The Cursed Child any time soon. For good reason though…
“I want to see the show,” he explained to Stephen Colbert on The Late Show earlier this month (15 June 2015). “I genuinely am intrigued, and I’ve heard it’s fantastic — but I just feel sitting in an audience of what will for the most of the near-future be very enthusiastic Harry Potter fans might be like not a relaxing way to see a show. So, not for the time being.”
Radcliffe will next be seen in adventure comedy-drama Swiss Army Man, which opens in the US on 1 July after impressing audiences at the Sundance Film Festival in January. In the film, he plays a corpse with a particularly relentless flatulence problem, which surprisingly comes in handy when he’s stumbled across by a hopeless man stranded in the wilderness who needs to get home. 10 Cloverfield Lane’s Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Paul Dano also star in the film.
