Unless they come up with a new, raging movie series about an adult, bordering on middle aged wizard with those big, round glasses.
Radcliffe says he’s trying to deal with this problem by focusing on roles and projects that are as far as possible from the Harry Potter character.
“I’m sure our personalities influenced each other, which sounds crazy because one of us is real and the other isn’t, ” Radcliffe told Contact Music. “Having spent so much time playing him, his instincts became my instincts, which is not such a bad thing. He’s fiercely loyal and curious and brave – and I hope I am.”
Radcliffe most recently starred in a 2013 romantic comedy titled “What If, ” which, he was hoping, did not remind anyone of the Harry Potter thing.
Contact Music asked if Radcliffe would be open to a future, Harry Potter film, and the actor responded with a resounding “No.”
But the rent must be paid, you know.
Radcliffe’s mother Marcia Jeannine Gresham (née Marcia Gresham Jacobson) is Jewish. So he’s part of the tribe, if you were wondering.
