Daniel Radcliffe does not anticipate taking part in the ‘Harry Potter’ television series. The kid wizard was portrayed by the 33-year-old actor in all eight of the films in the fantasy series, but he hasn’t played the part again since 2012’s ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2’, which is why a cameo in Max’s upcoming TV version is unlikely.
“My understanding is that they’re trying to very much start fresh and I’m sure whoever is making them will want to make their own mark on it and probably not want to have to figure out how to get old Harry to cameo in this somewhere”, Radcliffe told ComicBook.com.
Radcliffe doesn’t believe it’s likely that he will appear alongside Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), as some fans had hoped.
The ‘Mircale Workers’ actor stressed, nonetheless, that he wished the production team “all the luck in the world” as they adapt the ‘Harry Potter’ books for a brand-new audience. “So I’m definitely not seeking it out in any way. But I do wish them, obviously, all the luck in the world and I’m very excited to have that torch passed. But I don’t think it needs me to physically pass it”, he added.
Each season of the show will centre on one of the seven books, according to Max, formerly known as HBO Max, who announced the new series in April.
Author JK Rowling will serve as an executive producer alongside Neil Blair and Ruth Kenley-Letts, and they are anticipated to air over the course of a decade as the performers age alongside the characters.
David Heyman, who served in the same capacity for each film, is currently in discussions to take on the role again.
