Unpack the wand and glasses! Harry Potter fans are currently squealing with excitement, thanks to Daniel Radcliffe. The British actor revealed in a new interview that he hasn’t ruled out playing The Boy Who Lived again.
“It would depend on the script,” Radcliffe, 26, said during an interview with Britain’s Radio Times, published on Tuesday, June 28. “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.” (Ford reprised his role as Han Solo in J.J. Abrams’ 2015 sci-fi epic, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, 22 years after he last played the character in 1983’s Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
Radcliffe opened up about moving on from the blockbuster franchise during an appearance on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast in November 2015. “I was very lucky that people gave me opportunities directly after Potter finished to play more grown-up stuff, because I could have been getting teen-offer-type stuff,” he said at the time.
