Harry Potter and his magical world have been thrilling fans of the franchise since the first book came out in June 1997. Since then, the story of Harry, Ron and Hermione has been told through several mediums, including film, novels and a stage play titled "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child." However, it now seems as though the aforementioned stage production could one day find itself being a new home for a familiar film actor.

According to Cinema Blend, Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley in the film series, hinted that he may one day be open to appearing in the play that was penned by J. K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany.

When asked how he felt about potentially appearing on the stage, he said, "I mean, never say never! It's a great story. It's kind of a genius extension of those characters. But I don't know. I haven't really thought about it."

If Grint decided to join the cast in the future, it would be a return to form as the actor, like his former "Harry Potter" co-star Daniel Radcliffe, does have theater experience. Grint has also starred in "Mojo" on London's West End and in the Broadway play "It's Only a Play."

Those invested in the world will likely be pleased to hear there is an open door for Grint to reprise his role as earlier this year they were met with some surprising news surrounding the magical universe. The beloved site Pottermore, which was utilized for years by fans of the series in order to find out new information about the franchise and their Hogwarts house placement, recently changed direction after rebranding. Now called the Wizarding World, the updated site intends to offer users exclusive quizzes, videos and more.
