    “I would probably want to go with, like, Sirius [Black] or [Remus] Lupin,” Radcliffe said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. “Those were always the two characters that I was like, ‘They’re great.’ ”

    “I’m obviously biased by my experience of filming those scenes, with those people,” he said. “And they’re like some of my favorite memories.”

    If you ask me, Radcliffe would make a great Sirius Black or Remus Lupin. He just has a way of making every role his own!
