Daniel Radcliffe: No Plans to Reprise Harry Potter Role

Daniel Radcliffe said he is not inclined to reprise his role as Harry Potter, even as J.K. Rowling has released a new story featuring an adult Harry attending a Quidditch World Cup.

“My inclination is to say no,” Radcliffe said Tuesday while taking part in the Television Critics Assn. press tour at the Beverly Hilton. But he also emphasized that no one has asked him to do anything, either. “I don’t think it’s a question — not even a hypothetical at this moment.”

Radcliffe said he had not yet read the story, but he intends to. “As I understand it it’s a very, very short piece, I’m not sure it is of itself worthy of adaptation to film. (Harry) is at least 12 years older in it than I am now. I don’t think I’ll have to worry about it for a long time.”

Radcliffe appeared at TCA via satellite from New York to talk up his quirky Ovation series “A Young Doctor’s Notebook” that also stars Jon Hamm. The U.K.-production is heading into its second season featuring four episodes, which is all that they could squeeze out given Hamm and Radcliffe’s busy schedules.

Radcliffe joked that the show’s writers told him that a sure-fire way to get a series greenlit is to tell a network “you have Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm for four weeks over the summer.”
