Dumbledore: Back (In Some Form) in Book 7

UPDATE: Scans from these articles can be seen on DanRadcliffe.com, thanks to Jenna!

The Times Online and the Observer have both released new interviews with the Harry Potter actor.

Of particular interest to book fans, the latter website provides an interesting experience Dan had with Jo during one of her Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix set visits:

“Jo came down to the set at one point and I said, ‘Oh hello, why are you here today?’ And she said, ‘Oh I just needed a break from the book – Dumbledore’s giving me a lot of trouble.’ And I said, ‘But isn’t he dead?’ And she said, ‘Well, yeah, but it’s more complex…’ I was like, [briskly] ‘OK, I’m not gonna ask anything else!'”

The interview also includes talk on Equus and Dan’s personal life. The Times Online article finds Dan discussing what he wants to happen to Harry at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:

“I want him to die because I have a melodramatic yearning for a death scene. And the prophecy in the fifth book says only one of Harry and Voldemort can live. Or is it that neither can live while the other survives? Oh God, what is it? The fans will kill me if I’ve got that wrong.”
