Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe can't wait to get his hands on Jk Rowling's final book in the fantasy series - and he hopes his character has been killed off. Rowling has finished HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS and it is due to hit bookstores on 21 July (07). Radcliffe, who has so far played Potter in four film adaptations and has signed to appear in the final three, wants to say goodbye to the franchise in style, with a dramatic death. He says, "I sort of hope I'll die in it. I think that's the only way Jo can end it and I've a melodramatic yearning for a death scene."
