London: After successfully playing a wizard in the popular "Harry Potter" film series, young British actor Daniel Radcliffe is keen to do a role based out of a Shakespeare book.

"One day, yes, I`d love to. I`d be a pretty foolish actor if I sit here and say `no` to that. It is also quite intimidating, the idea of doing Shakespeare," Radcliffe has been quoted as saying by femalefirst.co.uk.

"I would love to, and hopefully I will one day, but I would certainly have to wait and make sure I was with a really good director because I`d need a lot of direction," he added.

The 21-year-old will leave the "Harry Potter" franchise behind this summer when "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" hits the big screen.

Radcliffe, also keeping busy with theatre, has already completed work on the big screen adaptation of novel "The Woman In Black". The thriller is directed by James Watkins.

The actor is also busy with the rehearsals of his musical debut on Broadway - "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying".
