Harry might not make it, Radcliffe says



Harry Potter may never grow up.

Daniel Radcliffe, who stars as the daring schoolboy wizard, said that Harry may die in the last book of J.K. Rowling's magical series.

"I'm going to be really unpopular for saying this about Harry, but I've always had the suspicion - with everything that's going on - that he might die," Radcliffe, 14, told a news conference to promote the third film of Rowling's series, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which opens Friday.

Rowling has remained silent about the fate of Harry. But with each new installment, she reveals more connections between the character and his archenemy, the evil Lord Voldemort.

"Harry and Voldemort have the same core in them," Radcliffe said. "The only way Voldemort could die is if Harry dies as well."
