After nearly a decade, the “Harry Potter” film saga will come to an end this summer, but the movie’s main actor, Daniel Radcliffe cringed at the prospect of author J.K. Rowling penning an eighth installment for the series.
“I could definitely write an eighth, a ninth book,” Rowling told Oprah last year. “I think I am done, but you never know.”
As reported by Celebuzz, these comments didn’t sit well with Radcliffe, who panicked he’d have to do another flick.
“I was worried! I texted [Rowling]. I said, ‘Look, is this true? Are you writing another book?!'” Radcliffe told Celebuzz.
To Radcliffe’s relief, Rowling wrote back hours later and vowed not to continue the “Harry Potter” series.
“She wrote back that she was so pleased with my performance in ‘Harry Potter 7: Part 1’ that as a reward, she promised to never write another book about Harry,” Radcliffe said.
Radcliffe has had other projects on his mind. The British actor is currently starring in the Broadway musical comedy, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”
“I’ve been so busy with ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying’ that I haven’t been thinking about Harry. In a few months, I’ll have to flip the switch and get back into Potter mode for a few days, but right now there isn’t time to be nostalgic about it,” Radcliffe said.
