Sob. Daniel Radcliffe has ruled out a return as Harry Potter.

Last month, J.K. Rowling has us all super-excited as she revealed Harry Potter will be back with a sequel next year. Following on from where Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2 left off, Harry will return nineteen years later, with his son Albus taking centre stage.

However, while we can't wait for that Hazza P shaped hole in our lives to be filled, Daniel has now revealed he won't be the one to fill it, admitting he won't be playing the role of Harry again.

Daniel brought Harry Potter to the big screen back in 2001 and continued to play him for another ten years, until the last instalment in the series was released in 2011. But after a decade, it seems he is now ready to wave goodbye to those broken round-lensed glasses and his wizard wand for good.

According to The Daily Star, Daniel has said: "I'm getting asked a lot, 'Would you play him?' And I'm like, 'No. Because I've done it.'"

While he won't be taking to the stage as Potter, Daniel did admit it will be strange handing over the famous character to somebody else. He added: "It will be very weird to see someone else play him."

The 26-year-old's comments come after J.K Rowling announced she will be bringing Harry Potter to the West End next summer.

In July 2016, fans will be able to watch Harry Potter and The Cursed Child - a follow on from the last of the Harry Potter books.

Giving us an insight into the story of the sequel, the synopsis reads: "It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

"While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places."
