Los Angeles - Daniel Radcliffe would be open to a cameo in the new Harry Potter spin-off movie.

Author J.K. Rowling is set to pen a script based on her book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - which is one of the textbooks Harry and his pals studied at Hogwarts school of wizardry in the films - and the actor thinks it would be fun to have the movie take place in the same timeline as the Harry Potter movies so the two could overlap in an indiscreet way.

Quizzed if he would be interested in cameo in the film, Radcliffe explained he'd be open to the idea if the protagonist of the new film - a magical explorer - had a chance encounter with his famous wizard.

He told to, "That's the version of it that I would be most interested in. By the time that comes into filming, I will have put quite a few years of work into putting that character away, so to put the costume on for any length of time would not necessarily be something I'm seeking."

"But I like the idea of an intertwining storyline, like him passing in the night. That's kind of fun. I don't know if that would be the case, but I could maybe be talked into that."

Rowling will write the script herself for Warner Bros., while Harry Potter producer David Heyman is on board to produce.
