That's what that Daily Mail says today:

HARRY Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he will never again play the schoolboy wizard.
The 13-year-old actor said he wants to concentrate on his GCSE studies.

Daniel's decision means he will not be involved with the fourth film of the series.

He is currently filming the third Potter movie - called The Prisoner of Azkaban.

Daniel has told friends he is concerned that his education may suffer because of his acting work.

Several possible replacements have already been given auditions.

Last year he was enrolled at the private City of London School, one of Britain's best.

Daniel plans to go to university after

The actor's mother, casting agent Marcia Gresham, told the Daily Mail her son had yet to reach a final decision.

Keep in mind that his mother said he wasn't sure yet.
