Looks like Harry Potter himself won't be going to watch the series' latest instalment!

Daniel Radcliffe, the actor who portrayed the eponymous wizard in JK Rowling's 8 part film series, will not be attending a showing of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! Radcliffe recently revealed to Stephen Colbert that he does not want to attend the play, and gives a very good reason why;

"I want to see the show — I genuinely am intrigued and I've heard it's fantastic — but I just feel sitting in an audience of what will for the most of the near future be very enthusiastic Harry Potter fans might be like not a relaxing way to see a show,"

You can't argue with Radcliffe, he does make a very good point. If he was to turn up to a showing of The Curse Child the audience would be more fixated on him, and not the show itself.

Radcliffe even spoke of the man who will be replacing him as the titular character, stating;

"Jamie Parker is a wonderful actor and I'm very happy to see him play me. All of the questions can shift to him now. He can do all the Harry questions now."

Radcliffe talks about the play in the video below with Stephen Colbert.

Set 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, The Cursed Child opens July 30 and will run until May 2017.
