Daniel Radcliffe has distanced himself from taking on the lead role in director David Yates’s Doctor Who movie.
Yates – who directed Radcliffe in his final four Harry Potter outings – confirmed the project late last year, revealing that he planned to spend “two to three years” working on taking the BBC series to a “bigger arena”.
When asked if he would be interested in playing the iconic role, the Woman in Black star sought reassurance from his team that the news was “out there”.
“I don’t know if I could play him,” Radcliffe told Digital Spy. “Matt Smith plays Doctor Who and does a wonderful job. They don’t need me!”
He continued: “I would never presume to jump into somebody else’s franchise, not at all.”
