As excited as we are to see a whole new cast take on our beloved characters in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, for millions of millennials there will always only be one Harry Potter: Daniel Radcliffe. And while many A-list actors tend to shy away from the roles that made them household names (I'm looking at you, Robert Pattinson), Dan is only happy to step back into those shoes someday, provided the circumstances and script are up to par. 

"It would depend on the script," he told Radio Times, when asked if he would play Harry again as an
adult. "The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But
then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo, and look what
happened there! So I am saying no for now, but leaving room to backtrack
in the future."

Hopefully we won't have to wait 30 years for it to happen. Until then:
