Daniel Radcliffe has predicted that there will be future adaptations of JK Rowlings famous Harry Potter book series. The 29-year-old actor, who was catapulted to fame after playing the title character in the film series based on Rowling’s books, told in an interview that he is certain someone else will definitely play the role in the future.
“I’m sure there will be some other version of it; I know I’m not the last Harry Potter I’m gonna see in my lifetime – we’ve already got a few more,” he said while referring to the “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” play.
“It will be interesting to see how long those films stay… It feels like there’s a sacredness around them at the moment, but that’ll go, the shine will wear off at some point. It’ll be interesting if they reboot them and just do the films again or do a series; I’m fascinated to watch,” he added.
The actor was promoting his new TBS comedy series “Miracle Workers”, where he is playing the lead.
The “Harry Potter” novels spawned a massively successful film franchise, and now, with the April 22 opening of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” the Boy Who Lived has conquered Broadway. Could there be a stage sequel on the way?
Rowling’s visit to “Cursed Child” for the New York opening marked the 16th time she’d seen the show, she said. All-day attendees included Chris Rock, Liev Schreiber, Brooke Shields, Glenn Close and Whoopi Goldberg, who came cloaked in a Hogwarts robe. Close didn’t know what Hogwarts house she was in, but Goldberg knew she was in Gryffindor — and invited Close to join her there. Playwright Thorne, meanwhile, said he was a Ravenclaw, while director Tiffany was Gryffindor with, according to him, a bit of Slytherin deep down. Sonia Friedman, who produces “Cursed Child” with Colin Callender, said she was Hufflepuff, but seemed very sheepish about it.
