Famous "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe expressed his desire to test his spells on Queen Cersei and the Night King.
For more than a decade now, Daniel Radcliffe has been well known as the lead star of one of the biggest movie franchises of all time, playing the young wizard character Harry Potter. As he has been discreet the past years after the last "Harry Potter" movie was released, he was also reticent to sign on to another long-term project and that included a lot of TV shows that he was approached for.
However, the award-winning HBO TV series "Game of Thrones" caught his interest and now the actor has revealed his desire to join the cast of "Game of Thrones" for season 7 or 8.
"Harry Potter" Actors For "Game of Thrones" Cast
The "Game of Thrones" showrunners and creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have not cast the famous "Harry Potter" star yet but he has already been open to the press about his interest of taking a role in the Emmy's record breaking TV show. The actor admitted that he is willing to take on the smallest of roles even if it means taking him on board and dropping him off in a snap.
In fact, Radcliffe claimed he can live with the thought that he will meet a gruesome ending after he gets in the "GoT" cast.
"I would love to [do Game of Thrones ]," he told Digital Spy. "If they want to just bring me in and f-- kill me, I would be so happy to do that."
In the event that Radcliffe's appearance in "Game of Thrones" season 7 or 8 pushes through, he wouldn't be the first character to enter Westeros only to be killed off quickly. From the last season, Ian McShane was another star who had the chance to be in the show, only delivering some lines before he was hung to death as a result of a raid.
Meanwhile, another "Harry Potter" star, Matthew Lewis, (who played the Voldemort-vanquishing Neville Longbottom) also revealed last year how he was courting the makers for a part in "Game of Thrones." He even put his efforts a step further as he tried to talk himself into an audition while filming the romance-comedy "Me Before You" with Emilia Clarke, who plays the character Khaleesi in "GoT."
"I just worked with Emilia Clarke, she was like, 'They're going to be doing some new casting.' I was like, 'Right, well, why don't you tell them I'm free and I can come and do it,'" he told Yahoo in an interview.
Meanwhile, the season 7 of "Game of Thrones" won't premiere until next year. The show's stars, on the other hand, can't help but tease their fans with remarks on the next season's script.
