  Potter stars 'may outgrow roles'

The young actors who play Harry Potter and his two best mates might outgrow their roles, a producer of the hit movie series has warned.

David Heyman told the New York Post: "There will come a point when one, two, or all three of them will move on."

Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have played Harry, Hermione and Ron in all three Potter movies.

But the time it takes to get the movie out means they might be too old to play the roles by film five, six or seven.

Harry ages one year with each of the books by JK Rowling, but movie-makers have been unable to keep up the pace, with a two-year gap between films two and three.

Five books have been published so far. JK's working on book six, but it's not yet known when it will come out.

This week, the young Potter stars were out in force for the world premiere of the third film, Prisoner Of Azkaban, in New York.

At the event, Dan, who is nearly 15, said he and his character have "kind of grown up together".
