The British actor rose to fame as a child playing JK Rowling’s Harry Potter in the hit movie adaptations of her books.
He has since gone on to carve a career playing varying roles from Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings to, most recently, a farting corpse in Swiss Army Man and as a magician in Now You See Me: The Second Act.
Although Daniel, now 26, says he isn’t considering a reprisal of his most famous role anytime soon he isn’t completely ruling it out.
“It would depend on the script,” he says.
“The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there! So I am saying, ‘No,’ for now but leaving room to backtrack in the future.”
In the meantime, Daniel is more than happy to let James Parker play an adult Harry in The Cursed Child play.
The production opened for previews in London in June, but Daniel says he’s unlikely to attend.
“It would be a weird one. I could be completely wrong in this but I feel like if I went to see it, there’s going to be a lot of Harry Potter fans there and would that then become a thing?” he told E! News.
“I would never want to do anything that would distract or take away from the show.”
Co-written by Rowling, The Cursed Child is the first new Harry Potter story in nine years.
Little is known about the plot, bar that the story is set 19 years after characters, Harry, Ron and Hemione waved goodbye to Hogwarts. Harry’s son Albus takes the starring role, left “struggling with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted” while learning with his father that “sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places”.
The latest Harry Potter movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is due for release in November, 2016.
