Daniel Radcliffe debunked a fair few rumours in a recent interview with The Daily Beast, noting that he is not engaged and nowhere near married, that he did not film any new scenes for the upcoming Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Ally attraction in Orlando, or that he has any part in J.K. Rowling's 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them' trilogy.

“No! Absolute bollocks. Absolute bollocks,” says Radcliffe, adding, “I don’t think we can even give the Daily Mail credit for that one. It was Star, I believe. It was funny. I got a text from my English teacher saying, ‘Is it true? Congratulations!’ and I had to text her back, ‘I’m afraid not! We’re very happy, but we’re not getting married.’ Marriage is not a thought that is even remotely close to me at the moment.”

Then there are the reports of the new Potter footage, which will allegedly be shown for the opening of the new Universal Studios ride “Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.” Again, bollocks.

“I know nothing about that,” he says. “They may very well be using existing footage that we’d already filmed for the movies, but I have had no calls or involvement in that. A while ago they asked me to do more stuff for the theme park, and that was my moment to try and draw a line because that theme park is going to keep expanding, and keep going to more countries, and there’s going to come a point where I’m going to be 30 years old, and if I was still doing that then, that would be a huge problem.”

He adds, “I wish them all the luck in the world and I genuinely think that what they did with the theme park in Florida is fantastic, and they really did a great job.”

Radcliffe also says he’s “totally not involved” in J.K. Rowling’s Potter spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which will hit theaters in November 2016, and the trio of Watson, Grint, and himself haven’t hung out together in quite some time.

“The last person I saw from Potter was Rupert, actually, and I saw him a couple of months ago at a theater awards thing in London,” says Radcliffe. “I also saw him in this play in London he did, Mojo, and he was brilliant in it. It’s a dark play about gangsters in the ’50s. But yeah, that’s really the extent of my contact. I haven’t spoken to Emma in a long, long while, but we’re all busy, and it’s been exciting to work with different people.”
