Daniel Radcliffe Says He Can NEVER Say No to Return as Harry Potter

For the time being, Daniel Radcliffe has ruled out resuming his role as Harry Potter in the classic fantasy genre.

Radcliffe addressed whether he’d return to his breakout role after playing in “The Lost City” in New York Times interview with the costars Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum published Thursday.

“Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts,” a reunion special, was released on January 1.

“This isn’t going to be the answer anyone wants,” Radcliffe remarked. “However, I believe I was able to go back and appreciate it since it is no longer a part of my daily life.”

“I’m getting the point where I feel like I made it out of ‘Potter’ OK,” he said, “and I’m content with where I am now, and going back would be such a major adjustment to my life.”

Radcliffe continued, ” “I’ll never say never, but the ‘Star Wars’ folks had maybe 30 to 40 years before they returned. It’s only been ten days for me. It’s not something I’m particularly enthusiastic about right now.”
Chris Columbus, who helmed the original two “Harry Potter” films, told The Hollywood Reporter in November 2021 that he would love to make a feature adaptation of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” according to the New York Times interview.

“Cursed Child” is a two-act drama set 19 years after the events of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” and focuses mainly on Harry’s younger son, Albus Severus Potter.

“It’s cinematic nirvana,” Columbus said of a “Cursed Child” remake with Dan, Rupert, and Emma at the appropriate ages. “To be able to watch these adult performers in these roles again? Oh, sure. Making that picture — or two films — would be a lot of fun.”
