Daniel Radcliffe, who became a household name after portraying the iconic character Harry Potter, revealed that he would love to play the role of legendary singer David Bowie someday. Bowie is considered to be one of the greatest musicians of all time after giving numerous hits during his professional career.

In an interview with FOX News, the 30-year-old actor opened up about his future projects and the musician he would like to play if he is offered a biopic based on the life of a famous artist. When asked if he is open to doing a music biopic, Radcliffe noted that he would have to see if he could do justice to the role.

He further stated that he would like to portray Bowie in a movie because his songs would be “great” to sing. However, he insisited that there are better people than him to play a singer in the movie and does not want to take the pressure of ruining the songs and the movie of his favorite musician.

“I do not know. That’s the thing, if you are talking like dream thing, who would it be fun to play and which songs it would be great to sing, then I suppose it would be David Bowie. But, I don’t think I would be good, and I certainly think there are people that would be better,” Radcliffe said.

The actor also noted that there is no need to make movies about everyone.

Discussing his time on the set of “Harry Potter,” the “Woman In Black” star explained that he is friends with almost all the crew members of the film and he is much closer to them than he is with his fellow co-stars like Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.

“Honestly I think that this is never the answer that people want to hear, but the people that I am actually closest to that I met on Potter are all crew members. I feel like those are the people that I have stayed and remained bonded with very closely. I think the rest of us are all sort of quite busy now,” Radcliffe said.

His latest film “Escape From Pretoria” opened to good reviews from critics and currently has a 71% score on review site Rotten Tomatoes. However, the film could not get a wide release date to the coronavirus outbreak
