To many, Daniel Radcliffe will always be Harry Potter—he did play the iconic character for 10 years, after all—but with previews of the Cursed Child starting in London, he is wary to attend a performance for a very thoughtful reason. 

“I could be completely wrong in this, but I feel like if I went to see it that night, there’s going to be a lot of Harry Potter fans there in the audience obviously and would that then become a thing?" Radcliffe told E! News at the Now You See Me 2 premiere in New York City. “Would it be more about them watching me watch the show or would it take away from the show. I would never want to do anything that would distract or take away from the show.” Always a class act, Daniel. 

He's not ruling it out completely though: "I'm busy doing a play here at the moment, but I'm not sure," he added. The play in question is Privacy, an Off-Broadway production that will run from July 5 to August 7.
