Does Daniel Radcliffe Have a Death Wish for "Harry Potter"?

Do anything long enough and it’ll probably get a little tiresome — even if that something is playing the world’s most popular underage wizard.

Seems that "Harry Potter" performer Daniel Radcliffe kinda wants his character to bite the dust at the end of Part 7, which we now know is called "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." According to IGN Movies and The Guardian, Radcliffe seems OK with finishing the series ("But if I did the sixth one, which I probably will, I think it’ll be really weird not to do the last one. If you’ve come that far you might as well finish them.") but would also like to see the young magic-maker go out in dramatic fashion: "I think that’s really the only way [author J.K. Rowling] can end it, if Harry and Voldemort… Maybe one can only die if the other one dies. I don’t know that for sure. But I’m quite looking forward to doing a death scene, if I get that opportunity."

Nothing against Harry P., but I’d also like to see Ms. Rowling kill the character off … if only because in today’s world of ceaseless sequels and pointless follow-ups, I think it’d be artistically refreshing to see a beloved character get slain. He IS fictional, after all.
