Daniel Radcliffe has admitted that he hasn't closed the door on the possibility of playing Harry Potter once again.

He spent ten years and eight films in the role, but with an adult version of the character now on stage in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Radcliffe says he won't rule out a comeback in the iconic role.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter at the Deauville Film Festival, where he accepted the Rising Star award, he said: "I'm never going to close the door; that would be a stupid thing to do.

"But I think I'll be happy enough and secure enough to let someone else play it. At the moment it’s not even a concern because I'm too young to play the character, but even in ten years' time I would still feel strange about going back to it."

He added:  "There's a part of me that’s like, some things are better left untouched. If we went back to Potter, there’s a chance we’d make what Star Wars: The Force Awakens was to the original Star Wars, but there’s also the chance that we’d make Phantom Menace.

"So I don't want to go back to anything like that and maybe sour what people have already loved."
