Daniel Radcliffe Reacts to New Harry Potter Story & Would He Return to Role

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Yesterday we reported on the arrival of a new short Harry Potter story penned by J.K. Rowling that updates the world on what Harry and his friends are up to since the close of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Daniel Radcliffe What If

The man himself, Daniel Radcliffe, was at the Television Critics Association's semi-annual event talking about his work on A Young Doctor’s Notebook and Other Stories yesterday and there was no way the press would let the man who was the Boy Who Lived go, without asking him about the Rowling short tale.

The question came up whether Radcliffe would ever consider reprising his role. Given the framework that Rowling has given us in the short story, we can see a future for Potter. Can Radcliffe?

“I don’t know. My inclination is to say no,” Radcliffe said.

“It’s not even a hypothetical, at the moment, really. What she’s written, I haven’t read it yet. I am going to read it. But it is, as I understand, a very, very short piece that I’m not sure is, of itself, worthy of an adaptation to film. I don’t know. He’s at least 12 years older than I am now, so I don’t think I’ll have to worry about that for a long time, I’m hoping.”

Check out how it all began and watch Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone online and it's easy to see why we're all so gaga about Harry.

Harry Potter Quotes

[to Professor Snape] For in dreams, we enter a world that is entirely our own. Let him swim in the deepest ocean or glide over the highest cloud.


Dumbledore: Mysterious thing, time. Powerful, and when meddled with, dangerous. Sirius Black is in the topmost cell of the dark tower. You know the laws, Miss Granger. You must not be seen, and you would do well, I feel, to return before this last chime. If not, the consequences are too ghastly to discuss. If you succeed tonight, more than one innocent life may be spared. Three turns, should do it, I think.
[He starts to exit, turns back]
Dumbledore: Oh, by the way. When in doubt, I find retracing my steps to be a wise place to begin. Good luck.
[He exits]
Ron: What the bloody hell was that all about?
