He explained: “I would probably want to go with like, Sirius [Black] or [Remus] Lupin. Those were always the two characters that I was like, 'They're great.’ And also like, I'm obviously biased by my experience of filming those scenes, with those people, and they're like some of my favourite memories.”

Can you see him as Sirius Black?

The 32-year-old added that he was confident that the series would come back eventually. ”I'm sure there will be some other version of it,” he explained. “I know I'm not the last Harry Potter I'm gonna see in my lifetime – we've already got a few more [in the stage play The Cursed Child]. I feel like there are other stories from that world that you could absolutely turn into a TV series, 100 per cent. A series with the older generation, that could be very cool.”
