Actor Daniel Radcliffe has not said his final goodbye to the role of Harry Potter in film or on stage.

Although an older Potter is currently aboard J.K. Rowling’s play, ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,’ which is set to be played by Jamie Parker, Radcliffe is not completely turning his back on the role that made him gain considerable success and great fame.

"It would depend on the script. 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!,” the 26-year-old actor told the Radio Times, when asked whether he plans to return to the franchise.

"So I am saying 'No' for now, but leaving room to backtrack in the future,” Radcliffe added.

The actor, who turns 27 this July, is keeping up with the magical world as he stars in ‘Now You See Me 2,’ the sequel to the 2013 Louis Letterier-helmed movie about a group of magicians and illusionists.

However, Radcliffe clarified that he never figured out any relation with the Potter world and the upcoming sequel until someone else told him.

"They were like, 'You are going to get loads of questions about magic again', and I went, 'Oh, damn, I guess I am!’” he said.

The ‘Victor Frankenstein’ star also added that joining the cast of ‘Now You See Me 2’ gave him a role that he has tried out for the first time.

"If people want to find a correlation, they will. I should probably pay more attention, but for me ‘Now You See Me 2’ was a new type of role,” he explained. “I have never played a part like this in a film like this and didn't think about the connection to magic."

Radcliffe joins the original cast of Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco, while Lizzy Caplan replaces Isla Fisher from the first set of actors.

The new movie shows Radcliffe's character Walter and his plans to even the score for his father, whom the group stole from in the prequel.

The English actor was obliged to take up card throwing lessons for such role, but admitted his practice hours took its toll on his girlfriend, Erin Darke.

Although it has been five years since the release of the final Potter move, ‘The Deathly Hallows: Part 2,’ Radcliffe recalled his experiences in place such as Mexico City and Japan where it remains difficult to walk around.

"It is much more now because when I was younger I wasn't going out by myself. Also, the fans of the films were younger and they were indoors with their parents whereas now we are all in our 20s,” he added. "The people who were big fans of Potter I am more likely to meet now, rather than when I was in my teens."

‘Now You See Me 2’ makes its cinema premiere on July 4.
