Biography

Daniel Radcliffe (born 23.7.1989)
Daniel Radcliffe is an English actor who rose to fame when he was chosen to play the role of Harry Potter in the film adaptations of J.K. Rowling's books of the same name.

Childhood: Daniel Radcliffe was born in West London, to Alan Radcliffe and Marcia Gresham. His father is a literary agent and his mother is a casting agent.

Daniel attended Sussex House School, an all-male school and later sat his AS levels at the City of London School, where he achieved three A grades in 2006.

Daniel's first televised acting role was playing the young David Copperfield in a BBC adaptation of Dickens' novel.

Acting Career: In August 2000, Daniel Radcliffe was selected to play Harry Potter in the big-budget films that were planned for the adaptation of J.K. Rowling best-selling series. However, his actual film debut was appearing alongside Pierce Brosnan in The Tailor of Panama, which was released in 2001. The first Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was released the same year. The subsequent Harry Potter releases (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets [2002], Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban [2004], Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire [2005] and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix [2007]) were all a huge box office success across the globe. Over the course of filming, Daniel has become close friends with co-stars Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Gary Oldman (who taught him to play the bass guitar).

Daniel Radcliffe appeared in The Play What I Wrote, a West End stage show directed by Kenneth Branagh and played a parody of himself in Ricky Gervais' show Extras. He also appeared in an independent Australian drama, December Boys, having worked for six months with a language coach in order to perfect an Australian accent.

In February 2007, Radcliffe began a string of performances in the stage play Equus, by Peter Shaffer. The role earned Radcliffe a great deal of press attention, as there was one scene in which he appeared nude. Critics were impressed with Radcliffe's performance, especially as the role was such a contrast to the type of character that he was used to playing.

In summer 2007, Radcliffe played the role of Rudyard Kipling's son, Jack Kipling in the ITV drama My Boy Jack.

Financial Affairs: In 2006, the Sunday Times Rich List estimated Daniel Radcliffe's fortune at £14 million. The next year, he was placed at 33rd place in a list of Britain's richest young people. Radcliffe supports a number of charities, including Demelza House Children's Hospice in Kent.

Ever Wondered Why Harry Potter's Hogwarts Class Was So Small? This Fan Has A Theory


Jk Rowling Daniel Radcliffe Harry Potter

A Harry Potter fan has a sad but very plausible theory about one of the book series’ most confusing aspects, why was Harry’s Hogwarts class size so small? The theory, posted by Tumblr user marauders4evr is definitely very believable based on what we know about the wizarding world, but it might also bring a tear to your eye.

Harry PotterA fan has a depressing theory as to why Harry’s Hogwarts class was so small.

For those who don’t know, Jk Rowling once stated that there were around 1,000 students at Hogwarts during Harry’s time. Now here comes the math. We also know there were seven years, which means there should be about 143 students per year.

Victor Frankenstein Trailer


Igor Strausman is the less thought about assistant of the insane but brilliant Victor Frankenstein. He's as genius as the passionate medical student he aids in experiments, but more rational when it comes to ethics. He does, however, share Frankenstein's obsession with eternal life and becomes equally as excited when they manage to bring a dead animal back to life. This in itself marks a unique scientific advancement, but Frankenstein's morbid curiosity fails to stop there. He wants to be able to create human life, but doing this involves sourcing body parts from mortuaries - and any other place they can find. Igor's timid nature, though deeply involved passion for the project, keeps him from doing his best to dissuade Frankenstein from completing their 'monster', until it's too late. Now they have a rogue beast on their hands, not to mention the police who are out for blood.
