The Once and Future Harry Potter

IMDB.com: Radcliffe: "I Will Always Be Potter"---

Daniel Radcliffe has dismissed fears continuing as movie wizard Harry Potter will typecast him - insisting he will star in all seven films. The 16-year-old, who has played the wizard since the first movie in 2001, is enjoying himself too much to leave the hit franchise, but intends to prove his versatility in a series of side projects. He says, "Ultimately it comes down to whether we're still enjoying it. If we are then I think we would be sort of stupid not to do them. As long as I'm doing other stuff around the same time, I think it'll be fine. Also, I sort of try to read the books when they come out impartially and not make up my mind, but the fact is when I was reading the sixth, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, there were bits in there where I was going, 'God, I would love to do that because it's so good.'"
I'm going to see the new one, HP and the Goblet of Fire on Thursday night, at 11:59pm. I do hope the same kids get to play the characters the whole way through. They are perfect in their parts and the continuity is so important.
