Daniel Radcliffe says it’s his dream to one day play the role of David Bowie

In a new interview with Fox News former Harry Potter star, Daniel Radcliffe has revealed his dream role would be none other than David Bowie.

The actor revealed his dream role when he was asked if the idea of taking on the role of a prominent figure ever interested him, considering the recent spate of musical biopics.

Fox News were speaking with the star ahead of his new film Escape from Pretoria, where Radcliffe said: “If you’re talking like dream thing, who would it be fun to play and which songs it would be great to sing, then I suppose it’d be David Bowie.”

“But I’m not actually submitting myself for that. I don’t think I’d be good, and I certainly think there are people that’d be better. And also, we don’t need to make a film about everyone’s life.”

“If it was a musician that I loved as well, there would also be this sort of twin pressure of I don’t want to screw up a movie about my favourite musician.”

The actor then joked, “Maybe something punk or something from the ’70s that would require less singing ability on my part. That might be good.” With the wealth of biopics coming out thick and fast, there could be a call for the Boy Wizard to become the Starman.
