Daniel Jacob Radcliffe was born on 23 July 1989 at Queen Charlotte’s Hospital in Hammersmith, UK, the only child of Marcia Jeannine Gresham (née Jacobson) and Alan George Radcliffe. His mother is Jewish, born in South Africa and brought up in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex. His father was raised in Banbridge, Northern Ireland, in a working-class Protestant family – his maternal ancestors were Polish and Russian Jewish immigrants. Both parents acted as children; his mother is a casting agent and has contributed to several BBC projects, including the series Detective Inspector Linley and the film Walk Away and I Stumble. His father is a literary agent.

He wanted to act since he was five years old, and his debut finally took place in December 1999 in the two-part miniseries Dávid Copperfield, based on Charles Dickens’ novel by BBC One, where he played the young self of the main character. He continued his studies in two private schools: the Sussex House School in Chelsea, Cadogan Square, and the City of London School, which is located on the north bank of the Thames in London’s financial district (the City). After the presentation of the first Harry Potter film, it became difficult for him to visit the school, because many students treated him with hostility, although according to his own admission, they just wanted to “do laundry for the child who plays Harry Potter”, they were not jealous of him.

As his acting career rewrote his schedule, Daniel continued his studies with the help of private tutors on set. He admitted that school never went well for him, that he considered it “very difficult” work and useless. In 2006, he sat his three AS-level exams, which he passed with distinction, but decided to stop studying, so he didn’t go to college or university. Part of his reasoning was that he already knew he wanted to act and write, and that living a real university life would be difficult. “The paparazzi would love it,” he told Details magazine in 2007, “if there was a party somewhere, they would definitely know where to go.”

Daniel Radcliffe Career


In 2000, at the request of producer David Heyman, he applied for the role of Harry Potter in the film adaptation of British author JK Rowling’s book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, which became a worldwide success. Rowling wanted an unknown British actor for the role, and as soon as director Chris Columbus saw Daniel in a cut from David Copperfield, he thought, “That’s exactly what I want.

This is Harry Potter.” After many auditions and eight months later, he was selected for the role. Rowling also supported the choice: “I don’t think Chris Columbus could have found a better Harry. Daniel’s parents initially rejected the offer, because they told him the contract was for six films that would be shot in Los Angeles. Instead, Warner Bros. two offered a film contract, with filming taking place in the UK; At the time, Daniel had no idea that he would be able to make more than two films.

In 2001, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone premiered – Daniel received a seven-figure salary for the role, but revealed that money “wasn’t that important” to him; his parents decided to invest the money for him. The film was a huge success and received positive reviews: “Radcliffe is the embodiment of every reader’s imagination. It’s wonderful to see such a young hero, who looks like a scientist, full of curiosity and real emotions, which is a deep intelligence and the discovery of the desire for family combined with joy,” wrote San Francisco Chronicle critic Bob Graham.

In 2002, the second part, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was released – the critics again highlighted the performance of the actors, but the film itself was not praised as much as the first part. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, presented in 2004, was the third in the series.

This time, New York Times critic AO Scott criticized Daniel’s performance and wrote that Emma Watson should have carried the performance. In 2005, the fourth installment, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, was released, becoming the second highest-grossing film in the series at the time; Daniel highlighted the film’s humor as the reason for the film’s creative success.

The future of the franchise was put in jeopardy when Daniel and his two co-stars, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, were hesitant to sign on for the final two installments; finally, Daniel signed the contract in March 2007, putting an end to the press’s “speculation that Daniel cannot continue his role due to his performance in Equus”, as he played naked on stage in the play.

In 2007, the fifth part of the series titled Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was presented, and Daniel said that thanks to director David Yates and actress Imelda Staunton, he enjoyed filming this part the most. He won numerous awards and was nominated for many more for his portrayal, including the 2008 National Movie Award for Best Actor.

Due to the success of the series, Daniel, Emma and Rupert left hand-, their footprints and wands at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood. The sixth film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, was released in July 2009, and Daniel was nominated for best actor and international superstar at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards for his performance.

Due to financial and scripting reasons, the final book was split into two films and shot simultaneously, much to the displeasure of fans. Daniel himself defended the split into two parts, as it would have been impossible to properly adapt the last novel in a single film. He added that the final film will be extremely fast-paced with lots of action, while the first part will be more relaxed and focus on character development. He also said that if they had combined the two, the latter would not survive the cutting board. Filming began in June 2010 and lasted a whole year – on the last day, together with the entire crew, Daniel himself burst into tears.

The final installment of the franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, was released in July 2011. Both Daniel and the film were praised by critics: Ann Hornaday wrote in the columns of The Washington Post: “Who would have thought that Radcliffe, Grint and Watson would become such good actors?” Like him, Rex Reed wrote: “Honestly, I’m sorry to say goodbye [to Radcliffe]”. Peter Travers, the critic of Rolling Stone, had only this message for Daniel: “Great game, sir.” Roger Ebert wrote very positively about the film, but felt that the performances of Radcliffe, Grint, and Watson were “overshadowed by the supporting cast.”

Daniel himself admitted that some people will never be able to separate him from his character, but he himself is “proud to be associated with this film series forever”. Although she has positive memories of the series, she does not wish to participate in any more Harry Potter films.

After Rowling said that she might write an eighth book for the series, Daniel was asked in several interviews whether he would take on the role of Harry again, and he responded: “I doubt it very much. I think ten years is a very long time with one character.” Despite the amount of time he devoted to the series, he didn’t miss his childhood like most child actors: “Playing Potter gave me a much better perspective on life.”

FROM 2001 TO 2009

Daniel made his film debut in 2001 in The Tailor of Panama, an adaptation of John le Carré’s 1996 spy novel, which became a moderate commercial success. He appeared on stage for the first time in 2002: he appeared as a guest star in The Play What I Wrote, directed by Kenneth Branagh. (Branagh himself acted in the second part of Harry Potter.) In September 2007, Boys on the Beach, an Australian family drama about four orphans, was released.

The film was shot back in 2005. Also in 2007, the biographical-historical TV movie My Sweet Son Jack was released, in which he played the son of Rudyard Kipling alongside Carey Mulligan, David Haig and Kim Cattrall. The film received a positive reception, several people highlighted Daniel’s performance as the 18-year-old soldier who disappeared during the war. “For many people my age, I. World War II is just an item in the history book. I’ve always been fascinated by the topic, and I think it’s as relevant today as it was before,” Daniel said about the film.

At the age of seventeen, he decided it was time to show people that he was ready for adult roles, so he took on a role in Peter Shaffer’s play: Equus had not been staged since its first performance in 1973, and Daniel played the main character Alan Strang, a stable boy, who is obsessed with horses.

An income of 1.7 million pounds was generated from advance ticket sales, and the media awaited the presentation with particular interest, as Daniel undertook a nude scene in the play. Equus opened on February 27, 2007 and ran until June 9. Daniel’s performance was positively received by critics, who were impressed by the depth of Daniel’s anti-role performance.

According to Charles Spencer of The Daily Telegraph, Daniel has “dramatic power and an electrifying stage presence that takes a giant leap forward.” He added: he was very nervous about reprising the role, as he thought the American audience was much more discriminating than the London one. He was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for his portrayal. he was very nervous about reprising the role, as he thought the American audience was much more discriminating than the London one. He was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for his portrayal.

Both Daniel himself and the production received favorable reviews, with USA Today saying “Radcliffe is a stunning success, not by overshadowing his co-stars, but by working in conscientious harmony with them – and he’s a blast in the process.” He was also nominated for a Drama Desk Award, a Drama League Award, and an Outer Critics Circle Award for his performance. The play itself later received nine Tony nominations, and Daniel appeared in it until January 1, 2012.

Her first film after Harry Potter was the horror film The Woman in Black, an adaptation of Susan Hill’s 1983 novel. The film was released in the United States and Canada on February 3, 2012, and a week later in the United Kingdom. Daniel plays a lawyer who is sent to settle the legal affairs of a mysterious woman who has just passed away, and soon after his arrival he is faced with strange events and the haunting of the ghost of a woman in black. He says it’s “incredibly exciting” to be a part of the film and feels the script is “beautifully written”.
