Bio

Daniel Radcliffe is an English actor best known for starring as the title character in the Harry Potter film franchise based on the Harry Potter novels by author J.K. Rowling, over the course of a decade.

Radcliffe was born in 1989 to Alan Radcliffe and Marcia Gresham. His father is from a Northern Irish Protestant background, and his mother was born in South Africa, to a Jewish family (originally from Lithuania, Poland, Russia, and Germany).

Daniel began performing in small school productions as a young boy. Soon enough, he landed a role in David Copperfield (1999), as the young David Copperfield.

A couple of years later, he landed a role as Mark Pendel in The Tailor of Panama (2001), the son of Harry and Louisa Pendel (Geoffrey Rush and Jamie Lee Curtis). Lee Curtis had indeed pointed out to Daniel's mother that he could be Harry Potter himself.

Soon afterwards, Daniel was cast as Harry Potter by director Chris Columbus in the film that hit theatres in November 16, 2001: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. He was recognised worldwide after this film was released.

Pleasing audiences and critics everywhere, filming on its sequel, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), commenced shortly afterwards. He appeared again as Harry in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) directed by Alfonso Cuarón, and then appeared in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) directed by Mike Newell.

Shortly afterwards, he finished filming December Boys (2007) in Adelaide, Australia, Kangaroo Island, and Geelong, Australia which began on the 14th of November, 2005 and ended sometime in December.

Dan reprised his famous character once again for the next installment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007). In February 2007 he took on his first stage role in the West End play Equus to worldwide praise from fans and critics alike.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final novel in the series, was adapted into two feature-length parts. Part 1 was released in November 2010 and Part 2 was released in July 2011.

In 2012 he began starring as a young Russian doctor coming to terms with his profession on the eve of the Russian Revolution in the dark comedy-drama series A Young Doctor's Notebook.
