Daniel Radcliffe - Is Daniel Radcliffe Going To Play Harry Potter's Dad?

Daniel Radcliffe has long insisted that he’s now done with Harry Potter; but a cameo playing his dad? That would be a different matter entirely. In the unlikely event that the author J.K Rowling opted to write a sequel to the existing books and films, Radcliffe commented “No more schoolboy stuff. A cameo as Harry’s dad? That would be perfect!”

Radcliffe was talking to Time Out magazine, and revealed that he did fancy being a father. “I definitely want to have kids,” the 23 year-old told the publication. “I’ve grown up around lots of people who were having kids when I knew them, because a lot of them were a lot older than me. And I saw the wonderful change in them.”

Continuing, he added “I see that it gives you a sense of purpose that up till now I only really get from work. I want that. I don’t know when or [with whom] but I want it. And I’d like to get started on it before my thirties. I like the idea of being a youngish parent. So I’ve got energy to play football even though they’ll be better than me by the time they’re four.” He also reckons that he’ll be a demanding parent, commenting: “I’m definitely going to be one of those parents who pushes their kids into things.”
