Harry Potter is expressing his opinion on the actor who will play his character in the TV adaptation.
After Max announced their 10-year commitment to adapt J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels for television, Daniel Radcliffe, who portrayed the iconic wizard in Warner Brothers’ film series from 2001 to 2011, is offering his approval to the fortunate young actor chosen to succeed him.
Radcliffe also makes it clear whether he will be making a cameo appearance in the series.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Radcliffe states, “From what I understand, they’re aiming to start fresh, and I imagine the creators would want to put their own stamp on it without having to figure out how to incorporate an older version of Harry in a cameo role. So I’m not actively seeking to be part of it. However, I genuinely wish them the best of luck and I’m thrilled to see the torch being passed. But I don’t think it requires my physical presence to pass it on.”
The Harry Potter reboot has faced criticism for appointing Rowling as an executive producer due to her controversial views on sex and gender, which have been widely criticized as transphobic.
In response to the backlash, Rowling took to Twitter and shared the following tweet: “Unfortunate news that I feel compelled to share. Activists in my mentions are attempting to orchestrate another boycott of my work, this time targeting the Harry Potter TV show. As I believe in being prepared, I have stocked up on a significant amount of champagne.”
