Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – The “Harry Potter” franchise ended six years ago and Daniel Radcliffe has not taken on any projects related to the installment he is most famous for but the actor shared that he is open to playing the character again in the future.

Radcliffe was interviewed by Radio Times and he shared about wearing the Hogwarts robe again, "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." Ford retreated from the “Star Wars” installment until he returned for the Episode VII franchise, which was a hit.

Radcliffe added that he is saying no about playing Harry Potter for now but he is leaving room for the possibility in the future. He also shared that his decision will depend greatly on the script for him to whether or not take on the role.

Radcliffe’s signature role is currently being played by Jamie Parker. Parker plays an adult Harry in the play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.” The show officially opens at London's Palace Theater on July 30.

In another interview, Radcliffe talked about the play saying, “I want to see the show, I am genuinely intrigued and I hear it’s fantastic. I just feel like sitting in an audience that will, for the most part of the near future, be very enthusiastic Harry Potter fans might not be a… relaxing way to see a show. So, I guess, not for the time being.”

Radcliffe has been taking on other projects since the “Harry Potter” success. He has played as a corpse in “Swiss Army Man,” played the role of Alan Ginsberg in “Kill Your Darlings,” and as a horned troubled man in “Horns.” He is also in “Now You See Me 2,” which is out in theaters now.
