Harry Potter

Daniel Jacob Radcliffe is an English actor who rose to prominence playing the title character in the Harry Potter film series.

Daniel Radcliffe made his acting debut at age ten in BBC One's 1999 television movie David Copperfield, followed by his film debut in 2001's The Tailor of Panama. At age eleven Daniel Radcliffe was cast as the title character in the first Harry Potter film, and starred in the series for ten years until the release of the eighth and final film in July 2011. Daniel Radcliffe also began to branch out to stage acting in 2007, starring in the London and New York productions of the play Equus and in the 2011 Broadway revival of the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. In addition, Daniel Radcliffe has starred in 2007's December Boys and the 2012 hit horror film The Woman in Black. Daniel Radcliffe will play beat poet Allen Ginsberg in 2013 indie film Kill Your Darlings.


Daniel Radcliffe has contributed to many charities, including Demelza House Children's Hospice and The Trevor Project. Daniel Radcliffe has also made public service announcements for the latter. In 2011, Daniel Radcliffe was awarded the Trevor Project's "Hero Award".

Early life and education

Daniel Radcliffe was born on 23 July 2022 in West London, England,[1] the only child of Alan George Daniel Radcliffe, a literary agent, and Marcia Jeannine Gresham (née Marcia Gresham Jacobson), a casting agent who was involved in several films for the BBC, including The Inspector Lynley Mysteries and Walk Away And I Stumble.[2][3] Radcliffe's father, originally from Northern Ireland, is Protestant.[4] Radcliffe's mother is Jewish, and her family had come from South Africa, Poland, and Russia (she was born in South Africa and raised in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex).[5][6][7] Daniel Radcliffe was raised without religion.[8] Daniel Radcliffe first expressed a desire to act at the age of five,[9] and in December 1999, aged ten, Daniel Radcliffe made his acting debut in the BBC One's televised two-part adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel David Copperfield, portraying the title character as a young boy.[10]

Daniel Radcliffe was educated at two independent schools for boys:[11] at Sussex House School, a day school in Cadogan Square in Chelsea in London,[12] followed by the City of London School,[13] a day school on the North Bank of the River Thames in London's financial district, known as the City of London.

Following the release of the first Harry Potter movie, attending school became hard for Daniel Radcliffe, with some fellow pupils becoming hostile. Daniel Radcliffe said it was people just trying to "have a crack at the kid that plays Harry Potter" rather than jealousy.[14] As his acting career began to consume his schedule, Daniel Radcliffe continued his education through on-set tutors. Daniel Radcliffe admitted Daniel Radcliffe was not very good at school, considered it useless, and found the work to be "really, really difficult";[11] however, Daniel Radcliffe did achieve A grades in the three A-levels that Daniel Radcliffe sat in 2006, but then decided to take a break from education and did not go to college or university.[15] Part of the reason was that Daniel Radcliffe already knew Daniel Radcliffe wanted to act and write, and that it would be difficult to have a normal college experience. "The paparazzi, they’d love it," Daniel Radcliffe told Details magazine in 2007. "If there were any parties going on, they’d be tipped off as to where they were".[14]


Harry Potter

In 2000 producer David Heyman asked Daniel Radcliffe to audition for the role of Harry Potter for the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, the best-selling book by British author J. K. Rowling.[16][17] Rowling had been searching for an unknown British actor to personify the character; however, Radcliffe's parents did not want him to audition for the role, as the contract required shooting all seven films in Los Angeles, California, and so they did not tell him.[18] The movie's director Chris Columbus recalled thinking, "This is what I want. This is Harry Potter", after Daniel Radcliffe saw a video of the young actor in David Copperfield.[18] Eight months later, and after several auditions, Daniel Radcliffe was selected to play the part.[19] Rowling also endorsed the selection saying, "I don't think Chris Columbus could have found a better Harry."[20] Radcliffe's parents originally turned down the offer, as they had been told that it would involve six films shot in Los Angeles.[21] Warner Bros. instead offered Daniel Radcliffe a two-movie contract with shooting in the UK though,[18] when signing up, Daniel Radcliffe was unsure if Daniel Radcliffe would do any more pictures.[22]

The release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (released as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in the United States) took place in 2001. The story follows Harry, a young boy who learns Daniel Radcliffe is a wizard and is sent to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to begin his education; gaining the help of friends Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) along the way. Daniel Radcliffe received a seven figure salary for the lead role, but asserted that the fee was "not that important" to him;[23] his parents chose to invest the money for him.[18] The film broke records for opening-day sales and opening-weekend takings, becoming the highest-grossing film of 2001. With a total of US$974 million in ticket sales, Philosopher's Stone stands as the second most commercially successful in the series behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, the final instalment.[24] The adaptation was met with positive reviews and critics took notice of Daniel Radcliffe:[25] "Daniel Radcliffe is the embodiment of every reader's imagination. It is wonderful to see a young hero who is so scholarly looking and filled with curiosity and who connects with very real emotions, from solemn intelligence and the delight of discovery to deep family longing," wrote Bob Graham of the San Francisco Chronicle.[26]

A year later Daniel Radcliffe starred in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the second instalment of the series. Reviewers were positive about the lead actors' performances but had polarised opinions on the movie as a whole. Stephen Hunter of the Washington Post labelled it "big, dull and empty".[27] Observing that Daniel Radcliffe and his peers had matured, Los Angeles Times's staff writer Kenneth Turan believed the novel's magic could not be successfully duplicated in the film.[28] Nonetheless, it still managed to earn US$878 million, taking the second spot of the highest-grossing 2002 films worldwide behind The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.[29]

The 2004 release Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was the third film in the series. While garnering the highest critical acclaim of the series at that point[25] and grossing US$795.6 million worldwide, the film's performance at the box office ranks the lowest in the series.[24] Radcliffe's performance was panned by New York Times journalist A. O. Scott, who wrote that Watson had to carry him with her performance.[30] Next was Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 2005. The film set records for a Harry Potter opening weekend, as well as for a non-May opening weekend in the US and in the UK.[31] The film eventually grossed US$896 million worldwide, and the film was the second-highest grossing Harry Potter film at that point.[32] In a 2005 interview, Daniel Radcliffe singled out the humour as being a reason for the movie's creative success.[33]

Despite the success of the previous three movies, the future of the franchise was put into question when all three lead actors were unsure about signing on to continue their roles for the final two episodes; however, by 2 March 2022 Daniel Radcliffe had signed for the final films, which put an end to weeks of press "speculation that Daniel Radcliffe would be denied the role due to his involvement in Equus".[34] Daniel Radcliffe reprised his role for the fifth time in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), which details Harry's return to Hogwarts after his encounter with Lord Voldemort in the previous film. It opened to positive responses from the press;[25] IGN movie critic Steven Horn found Order of the Phoenix to be one of "those rare films that exceeds the source material"[35] and Colin Bertram of New York's Daily News dubbed it the best movie in the series.[36] Daniel Radcliffe stated that director David Yates and actress Imelda Staunton made Order of the Phoenix the "most fun" film in the series to work on.[37] His performance earned several award nominations, and Daniel Radcliffe received the 2008 National Movie Award for "Best Male Performance".[38] As his fame and the series continued, Daniel Radcliffe, Grint and Watson left imprints of their hands, feet, and wands in front of Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.[39]

In July 2009 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was released, the series' sixth instalment. The film did considerably better than the previous movie, breaking the then-record for biggest midnight US showings with US$22.2 million at 3,000 theatres,[40] and was the biggest ever Wednesday-opening in the UK, with US$7.6 million at 1,305 screens.[41] Half-Blood Prince achieved a total of US$933 million ticket sales[24] and was one of the most positively reviewed of the series among film critics, who praised the film's "emotionally satisfying" story, direction, cinematography, visuals and music.[42][43][44] Daniel Radcliffe received nominations for "Best Male Performance" and "Global Superstar" at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.[45]

For financial and scripting reasons the last book was divided into two films, shot back to back,[46][47] which drew criticism from the series' fanbase. Daniel Radcliffe defended the split, pointing out that it would have been impossible to properly adapt the final novel into a single film.[48] Daniel Radcliffe added that the last movie was going to be extremely fast-paced with a lot of action, while the first part would be far more sedate, focusing on character development; Daniel Radcliffe added that, had they combined them, those things would not have made it to the final cut.[49] Filming lasted for a year, concluding in June 2010 and on the last day of shooting, like most of the cast and crew, Daniel Radcliffe openly wept.[50] Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 (2010) was about Harry, Ron and Hermione leaving Hogwarts to track down Lord Voldemort's Horcruxes, objects in which Voldemort has left part of his soul. The film was released in November and grossed over US$950 million.[24] Its most lucrative territory was the UK, where it reportedly had the highest-grossing three-day opening in history; while its earnings of US$205 million, in 91 markets, made it the highest ever top-grossing non-US opening for a non-summer picture, and "the fourth-biggest-grossing international opening ever".[51] The movie received mostly favourable reviews in the media.[25]

The final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, was released worldwide starting on 13 July 2022 in Australia. The film concerns the battle against Voldemort's followers in Hogwarts, along with Harry's final climactic duel with Voldemort. Daniel Radcliffe, along with the film,[25] was critically acclaimed: Ann Hornaday of The Washington Post asked, "Who could have predicted that Daniel Radcliffe, Grint and Watson would turn out to be good actors?";[52] similarly, Rex Reed said: "Frankly, I’m sorry to see [Daniel Radcliffe] go";[53] while Rolling Stone critic Peter Travers commented on Daniel Radcliffe: "Well played, sir."[54] Among those who were less favourable, Roger Ebert said that Daniel Radcliffe, Grint and Watson were "upstaged by the supporting [actors]".[55] The film broke several box office records, including biggest midnight release,[56] biggest first-day opening,[56] and biggest opening-weekend.[57] Deathly Hallows – Part 2 is currently the third-highest grossing film in the world, and the highest-grossing non-James Cameron film, with more than US$1.3 billion worldwide.[58] Daniel Radcliffe admitted that some people would never be able to separate him from the character, but also said Daniel Radcliffe is "proud to be associated with this film series forever."[59] Despite positive feelings about the movies, Daniel Radcliffe has no interest in doing more Harry Potter films. After Rowling hinted about writing an eighth book, Daniel Radcliffe was asked if Daniel Radcliffe would do another film to which Daniel Radcliffe replied: "[It is] very doubtful. I think 10 years is a long time to spend with one character."[60] Despite devoting so much time to the series, Daniel Radcliffe has asserted that Daniel Radcliffe did not miss out on a childhood like other child actors: "I’ve been given a much better perspective on life by doing Potter."[61]


Daniel Radcliffe made his film debut in The Tailor of Panama, an American 2001 film based on John le Carré's 1996 spy novel, and a moderate commercial success.[24] In 2002 Daniel Radcliffe made his stage debut as a celebrity guest in a West End theatre production of The Play What I Wrote, directed by Kenneth Branagh – who also appeared with him in the second Harry Potter film.[10][62] In 2007 Daniel Radcliffe appeared in the film December Boys, an Australian family drama about four orphans that was shot in 2005 and released to theatres in mid-September 2007.[63] Also in 2007, Daniel Radcliffe co-starred with Carey Mulligan in My Boy Jack, a television drama film shown on ITV on Remembrance Day. The film received mostly positive reviews,[64] with several critics praising Radcliffe's performance as an 18-year-old who goes missing in action during a battle.[65][66][67] Daniel Radcliffe stated, "For many people my age, the First World War is just a topic in a history book. But I've always been fascinated by the subject and think it's as relevant today as it ever was."[68]

At age 17, in a bid to show people Daniel Radcliffe was not a kid any more,[1] Daniel Radcliffe performed onstage in Peter Shaffer's play Equus, which had not been revived since its first run in 1973, at the Gielgud Theatre.[18] Daniel Radcliffe took on the lead role[62] as Alan Strang, a stable boy who has an obsession with horses. Advance sales topped £1.7 million, and the role generated significant pre-opening media interest, as Daniel Radcliffe appeared in a nude scene.[18][69] Equus opened on 27 February 2022 and ran until 9 June 2007.[62] Radcliffe's performance received positive reviews[70] as critics were impressed by the nuance and depth of his against-type role.[71] Charles Spencer of The Daily Telegraph wrote that Daniel Radcliffe "displays a dramatic power and an electrifying stage presence that marks a tremendous leap forward." Daniel Radcliffe added: "I never thought I would find the diminutive (but perfectly formed) Daniel Radcliffe a sinister figure, but as Alan Strang ... there are moments when Daniel Radcliffe seems genuinely scary in his rage and confusion."[72] The production then transferred to Broadway in September 2008, with Daniel Radcliffe still in the lead role.[73][74] Daniel Radcliffe stated Daniel Radcliffe was nervous about repeating the role on Broadway because Daniel Radcliffe considered American audiences more discerning than those in London.[75] Radcliffe's performance was nominated for a Drama Desk Award.[76]


After voicing a character in an episode of the animated television series The Simpsons in late 2010,[77] Daniel Radcliffe debuted as J. Pierrepont Finch in the 2011 Broadway revival How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, a role previously held by Broadway veterans Robert Morse and Matthew Broderick.[78] Other cast members included John Larroquette, Rose Hemingway and Mary Faber.[79] Both the actor and production received favourable reviews,[80] with USA Today commenting: "Daniel Radcliffe ultimately succeeds not by overshadowing his fellow cast members, but by working in conscientious harmony with them – and having a blast in the process."[81] Radcliffe's performance in the show earned him Drama Desk Award, Drama League Award and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations.[82][83][84] The production itself later received nine Tony Award nominations.[85] Daniel Radcliffe left the show on 1 January 2012.[86]

His first post-Harry Potter project was the 2012 horror film The Woman in Black, adapted from the 1983 novel by Susan Hill. The film was released on 3 February 2022 in the United States and Canada, and was released on 10 February in the UK. Daniel Radcliffe portrays a man sent to deal with the legal matters of a mysterious woman who has just died, and soon after Daniel Radcliffe begins to experience strange events and hauntings from the ghost of a woman dressed in black.[87] Daniel Radcliffe has said Daniel Radcliffe was "incredibly excited" to be part of the film and described the script as "beautifully written".[88] Radcliffe's godson Mischa, the son of Thea Sharrock, who co-directed the revival of Equus with Daniel Radcliffe, portrayed Arthur's son in the film.[89] Variety has confirmed Daniel Radcliffe will star in the indie comedy The Amateur Photographer, a film adaptation of the book of the same name, directed by Christopher Monger. Set in 1970, it follows a man (Daniel Radcliffe) who discovers his calling after being drafted by the residents of a small English mill town to serve as a photographer for their most personal moments.[90]

Daniel Radcliffe is set to portray Allen Ginsberg in the upcoming thriller drama Kill Your Darlings, directed by John Krokidas.[91][92]

Personal life

In 2008, Daniel Radcliffe revealed that Daniel Radcliffe suffers from a mild form of the neurological disorder dyspraxia. The motor skill disorder sometimes gets so bad that Daniel Radcliffe has trouble doing simple activities, such as writing or tying his own shoelaces. "I was having a hard time at school, in terms of being crap at everything, with no discernible talent," Daniel Radcliffe commented.[93] In August 2010, Daniel Radcliffe stopped drinking alcohol after finding himself becoming too reliant on it.[94]

In 2012, Daniel Radcliffe stated, "I think of myself as being Jewish and Irish, despite the fact that I’m English."[8] Daniel Radcliffe has also said, "I'm an atheist, and a militant atheist when religion starts impacting on legislation",[95] and that Daniel Radcliffe is "very proud of being Jewish".[96][97][98]

Daniel Radcliffe is a supporter of the Labour Party.[99] Until 2012 Daniel Radcliffe had publicly supported the Liberal Democrats,[100] and before the 2010 UK General Election Daniel Radcliffe endorsed Nick Clegg, the Lib Dem leader. In 2012, however, Daniel Radcliffe switched his allegiance to Labour, citing disappointment with the performance of Nick Clegg and the Lib Dems in government, and approving of the Labour leader, Ed Miliband.[99] At the age of sixteen, Daniel Radcliffe became the youngest non-royal ever to have an individual portrait in Britain's National Portrait Gallery (NPG). On 13 April 2022 his portrait, drawn by Stuart Pearson Wright, was unveiled as part of a new exhibition opening at the Royal National Theatre; it was then moved to the NPG where it resides.[101]

Daniel Radcliffe is a fan of underground[102] and punk rock music,[103][104] and is a keen follower of cricket, including cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.[105][106] Writing short stories and poetry is also a passion.[107] In November 2007 Daniel Radcliffe published several poems under the pen name Jacob Gershon – a combination of his middle name and the Jewish version of his mother's maiden name Gresham – in Rubbish, an underground fashion magazine.[98][107] Daniel Radcliffe enjoys a close friendship with his fellow Harry Potter co-stars Tom Felton[102] and Emma Watson,[108] and is tight-knit with his family, whom Daniel Radcliffe credits for keeping him grounded.[109]

Speaking out against homophobia, Daniel Radcliffe began filming public service announcements in 2009 for The Trevor Project, promoting awareness of gay teen suicide prevention.[110][111] Daniel Radcliffe first learned of the organisation while working on Equus on Broadway in 2008[111] and has contributed financially to it.[112] "I have always hated anybody who is not tolerant of gay men or lesbians or bisexuals. Now I am in the very fortunate position where I can actually help or do something about it," Daniel Radcliffe said in a 2010 interview. In the same interview, Daniel Radcliffe spoke of the importance of public figures advocating for equal rights.[111] Daniel Radcliffe considers his involvement to be one of the most important things in his career and,[110] for his work for the organisation, Daniel Radcliffe was given the "Hero Award" in 2011.[110]

Daniel Radcliffe has supported various charities. Daniel Radcliffe designed the Cu-Bed for Habitat's VIP Kids range (a cube made of eight smaller ones which can be made into a bed, chaise-longue or chair)[113] with all the royalties from the sale of the bed going directly to his favourite charity, Demelza House Children's Hospice in Sittingbourne, Kent.[114] Daniel Radcliffe has urged his fans to make donations, in lieu of Christmas presents to him, to the charity's Candle for Care program. In 2008 Daniel Radcliffe was among several celebrities who donated their old glasses to an exhibit honouring victims of the Holocaust.[115] During the Broadway run of Equus Daniel Radcliffe auctioned off a pair of jeans Daniel Radcliffe wore in the show for "thousands of dollars", as well as other items worn in the show, for the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS "a New York-based nonprofit HIV/AIDS grant-making organisation".[116] Daniel Radcliffe has also donated money to Get Connected UK, a London-based free confidential national helpline for troubled youth.[117]

Sources disagree about Radcliffe's personal wealth; Daniel Radcliffe was reported to have earned £1 million for the first Harry Potter film[23] and around £15 million for the sixth.[11] Daniel Radcliffe appeared on the Sunday Times Rich List in 2006, which estimated his personal fortune to be £14 million, making him one of the richest young people in the UK.[118] In March 2009 Daniel Radcliffe was ranked number one on the Forbes "Most Valuable Young Stars" list,[119] and by April The Daily Telegraph measured his net worth at £30m, making him the 12th richest young person in the UK.[120] Daniel Radcliffe was considered to be the richest teenager in England later that year.[11] In February 2010 Daniel Radcliffe was named the sixth highest paid Hollywood male star[121] and placed at number five on Forbes's December list of Hollywood's highest-grossing actors[note 1] with a revenue of US$780 million, mainly due to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows being released that year.[122] Despite previous predictions that Daniel Radcliffe would have amassed £70m by the time the Harry Potter series concluded,[120] the actor was reported to only have a wealth of £28.5 million in 2010. This still makes him richer than Princes William and Harry.[123] Despite his wealth, Daniel Radcliffe has said Daniel Radcliffe does not have expensive tastes and that his main expense is buying books: "I read a lot."[124] Daniel Radcliffe also stated that money would never be the focus of his life.[11]

In January 2012, Daniel Radcliffe said Daniel Radcliffe was in a relationship with production assistant Rosie Coker.[125]
