Daniel Radcliffe says 'no' to newest Harry Potter role
If you haven't already heard, J.K Rowling recently published a brief update on her Harry Potter characters.
But if you're expecting to see the series' well-loved protagonist, Daniel Radcliffe, in a possible film adaptation of the new material, we've got some bad news for you.
The Brit actor, 24, who was present at the TV critics press tour, via satellite from New York, was asked if he would play the popular wizard again if another movie production were in the cards.
Radcliffe, who played the role of Harry Potter for all eight movies between 2001 and 2011, said: “I’m inclined to say no because I don't think it's even a hypothetical at the moment,” wrote The Hollywood Reporter.
He later added: "What she's written — and I haven't read yet but I will — I understand it's a very short piece. And he's 12 years older than I am now."
Time also reported that in Rowling's latest 1,500 word release, an addition to the popular franchise since her last book seven years ago, the famed Potter character is in his 30's and sports “a couple of threads of silver” in his hair.
Absolute rubbish excuse don't you think? I'm sure make-up artists can help Radcliffe dye his hair and use some make-up to for a slightly older look.
