The idea of a Harry Potter remake is dreaded by many fans, but not Dan Radcliffe who will happily discuss what role he’d play if there were one.
“A cameo as Harry’s dad? That would be perfect,” Radcliffe said in a recent interview with TimeOut London. “Even if Jo wrote a sequel, which is unlikely, I’d take a LOT of talking round. I’ve done so much work to establish myself as something outside that series, I’d be really hesitant to go back. Even if they were set later in time. I’m 23, which is too old to be running round in a school boy’s cape.”
The role is a perfect one for Radcliffe if a Harry Potter reboot is created later in our lifetimes. The last time we saw Radcliffe in a Potter movie, we saw him as a father during the epilogue in which he’s sending his and Ginny’s child, Albus, off to Hogwarts. Radcliffe could appear in the Sorcerer’s Stone remake at the beginning when we see what happens to Harry’s parents. We’d also see Radcliffe as James when Harry looks into the Mirror of Erised and sees his parents. Are we getting ahead of ourselves?
In recent years, Radcliffe hasn’t shied away from offering predictions as to who he could play in a Harry Potter reboot. In off the cuff remarks just last year, the actor who played Harry Potter said he could portray Professor Lupin. In that same interview, he suggested it would “probably only be 10 years before people are ready to remake them again.”
We asked Emma Watson in September which character she’d play in a Harry Potter reboot. Her answer? Professor McGonagall because she’s “a badass.”
Radcliffe is currently rehearsing for his new role in The Cripple of Inishmann on London’s West End. Previews begin June 8.
