Daniel Radcliffe urged J.K. Rowling to discontinue Potter books

27th April 2011

Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he urged J.K. Rowling to stop writing books about the boy wizard.

Speaking to Celebuzz, Radcliffe said that he sent the author a text message when he heard rumours that she would be writing an eighth book set in the wizarding world.

'She wrote back that she was so pleased with my performance in Harry Potter 7: Part One that as a reward, she promised to never write another book about Harry,' he added.

The final big screen adaptation of the Harry Potter series will be released in cinemas this summer.

Rowling recently revealed how nervous she was when she first sold the film rights to Harry Potter.

Speaking to the Mirror, she said that one studio boss at Warner Bros wanted to make changes to the characters without ever having read the books.

'Although the books were already very popular in the UK, it was early days in the US,' she added.
