Daniel Radcliffe News: Star Open to Return as Harry Potter's Dad, Wants to Be 'Youngish' Dad in Real Life

Close

Daniel Radcliffe would be happy playing a father both on and off screen.

The former Harry Potter star has left his Hogwarts days behind and is currently preparing for a turn on London's West End in The Cripple of Inishmaan by Martin McDonagh. Although the world of magic is past, it's not far from the actor's mind.

'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," Radcliffe said when asked if he would feature in any possible future Potter films, according to Time Out

Radcliffe has appeared in a number of films and plays since his days as the boy wizard. From the West End to Broadway, he has appeared in Equus and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and he recently made an appearance at Sundance in Kill Your Darlings. However, if J.K. Rowling were to write some sort of sequel, Radcliffe wouldn't mind quickly trying his hand at the role of James Potter.

"A cameo as Harry's dad? That would be perfect!" the 23-year-old said.

Radcliffe played a father on screen in last year's The Woman In Black.

Radcliffe says that he would like to be a father someday.

"I see that it gives you a sense of purpose that up till now I only really get from work. I want that," Radcliffe said, according to The Independent. "I don't know when or [with whom] but I want it. And I'd like to get started on it before my thirties. I like the idea of being a youngish parent. So I've got energy to play football even though they'll be better than me by the time they're four."

In the meantime, Radcliffe is focusing on acting and writing his own script.
