J.K. Rowling Won’t Write More Harry Potter Books to ‘Reward’ Daniel Radcliffe

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe said J.K. Rowling told him (via text) that she won’t write more Harry Potter books.  MTV News caught up with Radcliffe on the red carpet for the U.S. premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.

Radcliffe told MTV: “Basically, it amounted to the fact that she felt I had been very good in this Harry Potter film, and as a reward for that, she wasn’t going to [write] any more Harry Potter [books].” In the video embedded above, the actor provided more commentary.

When asked by Sky News whether or not he would reprise the role if an eighth book were published, Radcliffe answered: “I think 10 years is a long time to spend with one character.” Do you think there should be another book? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
