Daniel Radcliffe has admitted he will “never say never” when returning to the Harry Potter franchise in the future.
The actor recently reunited with his former co-stars for a one-off special to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
In the HBO episode, the stars and directors of the popular franchise shared their fondest memories of working on the films.
Speak withThe New York TimesRadcliffe dampened hopes that he would play Harry in the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child — though he hasn’t completely ruled out a return to the franchise.
Speaking of the reunion special, he explained, “It’s not the answer that anyone is going to want, but I think I was able to go back and enjoy it like that because it’s not a part of my day-to-day life anymore.”
“I get to a point where I feel like Potter is well behind me and I’m really happy with where I am now and going back would be such a massive change in my life.”
However, Radcliffe discussed a possible return in the future, comparing his experience to that of Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford performing in 2015 Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
“I will never say never,” he said.
“But the Star Wars guys had like 30, 40 years before they went back. It was only 10 for me. That’s something I’m not really interested in at the moment.”
Radcliffe currently stars alongside Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum The Lost City.
He was recently cast as musician “Weird Al” Yankovic in an upcoming biopic, shocking fans when pictures of him on set surfaced on social media.
