Danielle Radcliffe went from shy schoolboy to the world’s most famous boy wizard overnight. Just 10 when he won the iconic role of Harry Potter, Daniel has often had to beat his own demons as he met the challenge of combining childhood with being a child star. No one could have envisaged just how huge Harry Potter would be, or how dramatically life-changing it would be for the little boy teachers once wrote off as having no prospects. Daniel won the part out of a staggering 16,000 boys who auditioned.
Now it is hard to believe that anyone but him could have ever played the role. Daniel became a film legend before he was out of his teens. In a bid to detach himself from being simply the boy with a wand, he bravely took on projects which were often controversial and challenging—but never dull. His courage at diversifying has won him a new army of fans. Now established as a leading young actor with a fame that is literally worth a fortune, having managed to conquer drinking issues, he is wiser, happier, and looking forward to a future of fulfilled dreams and ambition.
