Daniel Radcliffe Unlikely to Play Harry Potter Again

“I think 10 years is a long time to spend with one character,” said Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe, making it clear he would probably not play the wizard if J.K. Rowling published more books.

During her Oprah Winfrey interview earlier this year, Rowling surprised  Harry Potter fans when she noted: “I definitely could write an eighth, ninth, tenth book. I could, easily.” In the video embedded above from 2009, Radcliffe and cast mate Rupert Grint talked about the film.

More recently, Radcliffe reacted with surprise at Rowling’s revelation. He told Sky News: “Oh God, she promised me categorically that there wouldn’t be another book involving Harry … I think 10 years is a long time to spend with one character.”

Radcliffe has tried other roles besides Harry Potter. In London’s West End and in New York’s Broadway, he played the lead in the play, Equus. Radcliffe will return to the stage next March in a Broadway revival of the book-based-musical, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. (Via the Guardian)
