“Never say never!” he told Entertainment Tonight when they asked him he’d ever reprise his role as Ron Weasley in the epic series.
As fans know, the movies were based off of J.K. Rowling‘s seven-part book series. In 2016, the author continued the story when she released a two-part play called Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which went on to become a Broadway show. It takes place when Harry, Ron and Hermione are adults, and follows their kids as they set out on their own adventures at Hogwarts. Ever since it came out, there’s been one question on everyone’s minds, and that is — will they make it into a movie and will the OG stars return to play older versions of themselves?
“I saw it in London a few years ago. It’s incredible! It’s quite a strange, out-of-body experience to see,” Rupert continued. “It’s a great story. It’s kind of a genius extension of those characters. But I don’t know. I haven’t really thought about that.”
“You never want to close a door on anything, especially something that’s been so good to me,” he explained. “But I do think, at the moment, I’m definitely not at a stage where I would feel comfortable going back to it. Who knows if in 10, 20 years I would feel differently about that, and I think I’ve got a little while before I’m sort of age-appropriate for this Harry.”
