Radcliffe spells it out: I may return as Potter
DANIEL RADCLIFFE has suggested that he could return to the role of Harry Potter on the stage or screen.
An adult Potter is currently treading the boards in London’s West End in JK Rowling’s play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but with Jamie Parker in the title role.
However, Radcliffe, 26, has not completely closed the door on a reprise of the role that made him famous. He told the Radio Times: “It would depend on the script. The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there. So I am saying ‘no’ for now, but leaving room to backtrack in the future.”
The actor is keeping his hand in with magic in his new film role in Now You See Me 2, the sequel to the 2013 hit about a group of illusionists, but he told the magazine he did not see any correlation until somebody pointed it out.
Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint has taken the Government to court claiming he is owed a £1 million tax refund.
Grint, 27, who played Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film series, is in dispute with HM Revenue and Customs about when an accounting year ended.
Accountant Dan Clay, who advises Grint, said the actor would be in line for a refund of “just over £1 million” if he won a tax tribunal case.
