Daniel Radcliffe will not be surprised if / a Harry Potter reboot takes place.
The 29-year-old actor opened on the probable opportunity during an interview with IGN while promoting his new TBS comedy series Miracle Workers.
“I’m sure there will be another version, I know I’m not the last Harry Potter I’ll see in my life,” he said, referring to Harry Potter and Cursed Child actors Jamie Parker and Gareth Reeves, who both played the famous wizard.
He continued: “It will be interesting to see how long those films remain – it feels like there is a holiness around them right now, but that will go away, the shine will decrease at some point.”
If it were to be restarted, Radcliffe said he would not begrudge the decision.
“It will be interesting if they reboot and re-do the movies or make a series, I’m fascinated to watch,” he said.
Although Radcliffe may think that a Potter reboot is inevitable, it is unlikely that he will soon make a return to the magical world.
“To some extent with things like the play and Fantastic Beasts, I think people are still interested in talking to me about it, but nothing happened in that area,” he told E! News in May 2018. “At the moment I am very happy with playing a lot of different things.”
In 2016, he told The Hollywood Reporter that he would not mind returning, although the actor did not make any promises.
“I will never close that door, but I think I will be lucky enough and safe enough to let someone else play it,” he said.
One of his recent acting assignments includes a leading role in the Broadway play The Lifespan of a Fact in which he shines as Jim Fingal, a stubborn young fact chief who causes problems in checking a news report from a writer (Bobby Cannavale).
Radcliffe’s newest performance is in Miracle Workers who play an angel at low level who has to convince God (Steve Buscemi) to let human beings live.
