Daniel Radcliffe 'could return' as Harry Potter

Daniel Radcliffe is open to reprising his role as Harry Potter.
The 24-year-old actor who was catapulted to the spotlight for his role as the beloved wizard boy in the adaptation of J. K. Rowling's popular children's book is not going to rule out a spot in the author's highly anticipated film titled 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them', which is an original story based on the adventures of Newt Scamander.
Daniel told hollywoodreporter.com: "He [Harry] could return if time travel rears its head again. I'll be intrigued to see what she does."
The star insists that he doesn't know what the author's plans for the movie are but is eager to find out what more about the film which J. K. Rowling has previously described as "neither a prequel nor a sequel to the Harry Potter series, but an extension of the wizarding world."
He said: "I don't think I'm going to be coming back ... we can't be doing these characters when we're 40, so there has to be a line drawn.
"Because I never know what Jo [Rowling] is going to write, but at the moment I'm in the same position that everyone else is in -- waiting to hear what information is coming out because I don't know anything about these new films."
The best-selling author is making her screenwriting debut with a series of movies loosely based on her world-famous franchise about the teenage wizard and his battle against the Dark Lord.
She previously said: "The laws and customs of the hidden magical society will be familiar to anyone who has read the Harry Potter books or seen the films, but Newt's story will start in New York, seventy years before Harry's gets underway."
