Speaking while promoting his Broadway appearance in the play "The Lifespan of a Fact," former "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe spoke about his love of stage performance and enjoys what he believes is "the best work of the world". (September 7th)

"Harry Potter and the Damned Child "has been on Broadway for over a year and a half, but do not expect to see the original Harry in the audience.

Actor Daniel Radcliffe, who grew up before our eyes as "the child who lived," said on Wednesday in "Late Night with Seth Meyers" that he has been asked a lot about whether he will participate in the two-part play.

"I always give a really boring and terrible answer," he told Meyers. "I probably will not see it, I have no plans to do it, not because I think it would throw me into some kind of existential crisis like" Oh, it's that What happened? & # 39; "

The real reason? No invisibility cloak.

"It would not be a relaxing night," said Radcliffe. "I feel like they would be watching me to see my reaction, and maybe that would be completely self-important and selfish and people would not mind, but I feel that if I was surrounded by 'Harry Potter' fans, it would be a bit strange . "

Fair enough. If you were sitting next to Radcliffe, could you resist taking a look?

As for going incognito, we assume that the actor does not have any Polyjuice potion or even a useful spell to change his appearance. A costume?

"What happens with a disguise," said Radcliffe, "is that if it stops working, then you're just a guy wearing a costume."

Well said.
