    With the final Harry Potter film almost upon us, fans of the famous franchise are preparing themselves for the end of an era. And with Deathly Hallows movie merchandise branding the dramatic slogan ‘It All Ends Here’ we certainly don’t think there will be a new installment any time soon.

    But despite looking forward to other acting adventures, Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he wouldn’t completely rule out a return to the famous role in the future.


    Last week J.K. Rowling sparked rumours an eighth book could be on the way, when she launched the mysterious Pottermore website, alerting fans to an exciting announcement coming soon.

    Dan admitted he knew ‘nothing about that whatsoever,’ but added: ‘I’m sure that Jo [Rowling] will be writing a lot more in the coming years.

    ‘As long as they don’t involve Harry, I’m quite happy to buy them.’

    And while Mr Radcliffe doesn’t think another Harry Potter story is in the works, he’s revealed ‘not particularly’ thrilled by the thought of a return to the role, but will never say never.

    ‘I think that would be a bit odd. I’d be very skeptical about that,’ he told the LA Times.

    ‘First of all, I don’t think that [Rowling] will [write another Potter installment] and second of all, oh, I don’t know, the idea of going back to something after 10 or 20 years?

    ‘At that point, I will have worked 20 years to establish a career outside of it, and at that point to go back to it would feel a little self-defeating.’

    ‘I could feel completely different at that time,’ he admitted, ‘but at this moment, it feels like it would be strange and not the way it would or should go.’
