Daniel Radcliffe Doesn't Want To Be Part of the 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' Film
“I’m really happy with where I am now,” said the actor.
Director Chris Columbus expressed to The Hollywood Reporter that he believes having Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson part of the project would be a “cinematic bliss.” However, during a recent interview with The New York Times, Radcliffe said reprising his role as boy wizard Harry isn’t something he wants to do for the time being.
Fortunately, Potterheads got to see Radcliffe and the rest of the gang in the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts reunion special, which led him to make a few realizations. “This isn’t the answer that anybody’s going to want, but I think I was so able to go back and enjoy it because it’s not a part of my day-to-day life anymore,” the actor said about the reunion. “I’m getting to a point where I feel like I made it out of Potter okay and I’m really happy with where I am now, and to go back would be such a massive change to my life. I’m never going to say never, but the Star Wars guys had like 30, 40 years before they went back.”
However, it seems like he could change his mind over time. “For me, it’s only been 10,” he added. “It’s not something I’m really interested in doing right now.”
Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is currently streaming on HBO Max.
