Daniel Radcliffe address his thoughts on potentially reprising his iconic Harry Potter role.
The Harry Potter franchise has seen a recent revitalisation this past year. After an inactive few years, author JK Rowling invigorated the series by debuting a new stage play named Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
On top of this, we saw the introduction to the prequel to Harry Potter in the recent film Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them. With all of this occurring, fans began to naturally speculate whether the original stars like Daniel Radcliffe will reprise their beloved iconic roles.
The actor commented on his potential return to the Harry Potter universe. Radcliffe recently sat down with Good Morning Britain to promote his upcoming projects as well as looking back on his renowned Harry Potter days. He was asked about the possibility of a return to the Wizarding World to which he responded: “Oh, I don’t know. I’m not sure, that’s a long way off isn’t it? I mean, Harry’s gotten a bit older now. I really don’t know, I think that’s all highly theoretical talk. If it ever became more than theoretical, I would of course, think about it.”
It is safe to assume that fans would be thrilled to see the British actor return as Harry Potter. Radcliffe began as a child actor working on the franchise, since then he became an accomplished actor whilst growing up in front of our own eyes.
The last year showcased rampant rumours that Warner Bros are looking to potentially create a new Harry Potter trilogy. Which would feature the original cast members like Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.
However Rowling has adamantly dismissed the rumours of this happening. But fans can hold on to the dream of Radcliffe returning for an adaptation to the Cursed Child in the future. In the meantime though, we do always have the new franchise Fantastic Beasts to hold on to. With the first instalment premiering last winter as four more films are slated to be released over the next few years.
