Yes, it’s true. After watching Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter for 10 years, he has made it very clear that it will take a huge amount of convincing for him to don his Hogwarts robes or sport the famed lightning scar once again. In an interview with Time Out London, available June 4th, Dan talks about his work on the play The Cripple of Inishmaan and even reveals that he is writing a screenplay.
When asked about the possibility of reprising his role as Harry Potter for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or other works, Radcliffe states:
“Even if Jo wrote a sequel, which is unlikely, I’d take a LOT of talking round. I’ve done so much work to establish myself as something outside that series I’d be really hesitant to go back. Even if they were set later in time. I’m 23, which is too old to be running round in a school boy’s cape.”
However, he is open to the option of playing another Potter, replying “A cameo as Harry’s dad? That would be perfect!”
Regarding this new endeavour of screenwriting, Dan says:
“It’s a serious attempt at a black comedy. A very, very, very dark comedy. I‘ve always loved the way Martin McDonagh writes. That very economical but rhythmic way he writes the interplay between characters.”
The Cripple of Inishmaan opens June 8th. Will you be checking out Dan in this latest performance?
