Rad­cliffe spells it out: I may re­turn as Pot­ter

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

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.
