Daniel Radcliffe spent his childhood bringing the adventures of Harry Potter to life. While that amount of dedication could hook someone forever, Radcliffe is definitely ready to move on from the Wizarding World.

Recently, on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Radcliffe revealed that he has yet to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway, and does not see it happening in his future. “I’m probably not going to see it, I don’t have plans to,” Radcliffe said. “Not because I think it would throw me into some sort of existential crisis of like, ‘Oh, is that what happened?’”

So if not for threat on an existential crisis, then why not?

“It would not be a relaxing evening in the theater," he admitted. "I feel like I would be being watched for my reaction. And maybe that is completely conceited and egotistical and people wouldn’t care, but I do feel if I was just surrounded by Harry Potter fans, it would be a little odd."

We can see why it would be weird for the actor, but it seems hard to resist indulging in another slice of JK Rowling’s world. Maybe he just read the book instead.
