Daniel Radcliffe started very young and performed in school productions. His debut role was in the movie David Copperfrield (1999) where he was a young version of David himself. The next role – Mark Pendel in The Tailor of Panama (2001) changed him, as that was where it was suggested to Daniel’s mother that he could play a role of Harry Potter. Not long after that moment, he was cast as the protagonist in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in 2001. The movie gained great success, and got seven more sequels after that, up until 2011, as the last movie based on a book had to be split into two parts in order to convey the story in a great way.

Some people thought Daniel Radcliffe will forever be remembered as The Boy Who Lived, but he proved he’s versatile and continued doing other movies. The most notable were The Woman in Black (2012) and Kill Your Darlings (2013), where he actually met his current girlfriend and is dating her up even today. These past years Daniel has changed quite a bit, for example, he shaved his head for the role of Nate Foster in Imperium (2016) in order to portray a skinhead. That truly showed dedication to a role and is a part of why the audience loves Dan so much.

What’s there for Daniel Radcliffe in the future? Well, as you may know, Dan likes to keep his life private, isn’t part of any social media, and doesn’t endorse any brands unless they have a great humanitarian purpose. That leads him to do fewer movies a year, but they’re as good as they get. This year we’ll see him in TV series called Miracle Workers, and the movie Beast of Burden is filmed and ready to go. It’s very action-packed and deals with drugs, illegal cargos, drug cartels and of course, hitmen. We can’t wait to see it!
