With the first part of the finale of the Harry Potter series in cinemas, the most successful film franchise looks to be coming closer to an end. The burning question has been whether JK Rowling will write more Potter books or if there will be a spin-off with another character.

Though Rowling previously claimed she was done writing Harry Potter stories, more recently she said she’s not adverse to writing more of his books, as Collider reported, but it appears most likely to focus on a character other than Harry. Rowling suggested the possibility of writing new Harry Potter books in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, saying, “I’m not going to say I won’t. I don’t think I will... I feel I am done, but you never know.”

So Fandango, an online movie ticket retailer in the US, polled 1,000 Potter ticket-buyers who conveyed who they would like to see carry on the world of wizardry. A total of 44% chose Rhys Ifans as the newPotterperformer they’re most looking forward to seeing on the big screen. In a close second place with 40% of the vote was Artemis Fowl, an upcoming film based on Eoin Colfer's books, as a possible successor to the Potter films on the big screen.
