“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.’ ”

Sirius Black was one of the main characters in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. In the film, he was revealed to be Potter’s godfather.

Radcliffe admitted that he might've been a little bit “biased" when choosing those two roles to play.

“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.”
