As the first of the final two "Harry Potter" films gets ready to hit theaters, stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson both say it would take a bit of wizardry for them to reprise their roles ever again.
Though author J.K. Rowling recently told Oprah Winfrey that she hasn't ruled out adding a few new titles to the blockbuster "Harry Potter" book series, Radcliffe is ready to leave the boy wizard behind.
"Oh God, she promised me categorically that there wouldn't be another book involving Harry," 21-year-old Radcliffe, who has played Harry Potter since age 11, said in a Sky News interview. The actor added he is "doubtful" that he would participate in any future Potter films. "I think 10 years is a long time to spend with one character," he said.
Meanwhile, 20-year-old co-star Watson, a sophomore at Brown University in Rhode Island, may be done with acting altogether.
"It happened when I was very young," she said of being cast as Muggle Hermione Granger, "and this was one role and it transformed the whole of my life. But it doesn't necessarily mean that this is what's going to make me happy. I want to be able to explore a few other things as well."
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" is out November 19, with the follow-up arriving in July 2011.
