Daniel Radcliffe says he won’t reprise his role as Harry Potter but he wouldn’t mind being in another franchise.

The 23-year-old tells Time Out London: “Franchise mustn’t become a dirty word. If directors like J.J. Abrams and Joss Whedon keep doing what they’re doing, it won’t be. I’d love to be part of one again. Maybe not leading it: a nice supporting role. In Star Wars? Yeah, that’d be awesome. That’d be crazy cool.'”

The actor – currently starring on London’s West End in the play The Cripple of Inishmaan –  reveals he’s writing a screenplay.

“It’s a serious attempt at a black comedy. A very, very, very dark comedy. I’ve always loved the way Martin McDonagh writes. That very economical but rhythmic way he writes the interplay between characters. You learn about their relationships through how they’re talking not what they’re saying. That’s the kind of writing I love and I aspire to. And it’s got a fair amount of blood in it, too. In that way I’m just ripping Martin off!'”

Daniel also shares that he’s getting a particular tattoo.

He says, “It’s going to sound really pretentious but there’s a Beckett quote I really like which I’m going to get tattooed on me. “Try again, fail again, fail better.” That’s what I’m about. I heard someone say growing up is about aiming to succeed but being fulfilled by failing very well. I agree with that 100 per cent.”
