Amid recent rumours that he’s considering one day returning to his iconic role as Harry Potter, actor Daniel Radcliffe says that while doesn’t want people to “forget” about those movies, he isn’t interested in reprising them any time soon.

The 27 year old star, who is starring in two upcoming movies in the shape of Imperium and Swiss Army Man, spoke in a new interview with The Independent about persistent judgments being made on his post-Potter career, which has been primarily focussed on pursuing independent projects.

“I don’t want people to forget about Harry Potter, I’m incredibly proud of those films,” he said about starring in the eight movies that were released between 2001 and 2011.

“I also don’t want to repeat myself in terms of what I did with Harry, but in terms of Woman in Black and now Imperium, I think I get an undeserved amount of credit playing diverse things because people saw me playing one role for a long time. Really, it’s just what most actors want; as varied a career as possible. I’m just lucky enough to be in a position where I can do that.”

Speaking to Reuters last Friday (September 23rd), Radcliffe had said that he wouldn’t have any interest returning to play the boy wizard in the near future. This is in contrast to remarks he had made in recent weeks saying that he might one day do so, if the current ‘Cursed Child’ stage play was ever commissioned for a film version.

Elsewhere in the interview, he gave his reaction to the headline-grabbing ‘farting corpse’ comments about his role in Swiss Army Man. He said he was pleased that the focus was now beginning to move past the initial shock and amusement about the unusual role, but admitted that it had made the movie stand out at film festivals in a positive way.

About his Imperium role, in which he plays a CIA agent infiltrating a white supremacist group he described his requirement to shout “certain words” as “really unpleasant”. He also added he wasn’t worried about white supremacists attending the film, even saying he’d be “delighted” if the film could open such viewers’ minds.
