The experience of playing the parts of Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley has left Daniel Radcliffe Emma Watson and Rupert Grint exhausted.
The news that J.K. Rowling might write more Potter stories has left the trio cold. 'No more magic' they chimed in unison.
Trying to break with characters so well known will be difficult but as their personalities have developed the trio have altered considerably. There should be chances to shine in other areas.
Naturally, Daniel Radcliffe would be a tremendous Dr Who and Emma Watson might move away from cinema acting and go into modelling. Rupert Grint has something of the mumbling detective as the sidekick to a John Thaw type Police Inspector.
Rowling's original Potter trio could live on in new guises.
She could develop her story with a fresh ensemble. As they become adults Harry would be a natural leader. He could be heading for a Spooks role as MI5 chief, Hermione could take over a supernatural Q1 and Rupert might shine in Dr Watson roles with Sherlock Holmes.
The final curtain comes down on Deathly Hallows but the future still beckons.
