Daniel Radcliffe wants to join 'Game of Thrones' – and then be brutally killed off

In what'd be the coming-together of two epic fantasy franchises, Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe has said he wants to be in 'Game of Thrones'. We repeat, Potter wants into Westeros. 

The 27-year-old actor, who played Harry Potter for ten years (and in our hearts forever shall), has said he would 'love to' join George RR Martin's Seven Kingdoms. He even wants his own gory and gruesome death. 

'I would love to. If they want to just bring me in and fucking kill me, I would be so happy to do that,' he said. 

'Right now I have a little bit of freedom. So if I read a script for something that's filming next year, I don't have to turn it down because I'm not available, which I did for a long time,' he added, telling Digital Spy that doing TV is appealing, as long as he doesn't have to sign on 'for seven years.' 

It's no secret that Radcliffe has been trying to move away from his time at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, choosing diverse and more grown-up roles (like that of a farting corpse in his latest movie 'Swiss Army Man') so a stint on 'Thrones' would make perfect sense. 

Small and brutally cut-short cameos aren't unheard of in the HBO show, either. Ian McShane popped up in season six only to – #spoiler – be found hung by the Brotherhood Without Banners later in the same episode. 

All men must die. Even the Boy Who Lived. 

'Game of Thrones' returns to Sky Atlantic next year.
