Daniel Radcliffe - Daniel Radcliffe Delighted With Connery Praise

Daniel Radcliffe is confident he can carve himself a successful career away from the Harry Potter franchise after James Bond star Sir Sean Connery praised his "good choices" of roles.
The Brit found fame as an 11 year old after landing the lead part in the wizard movies, and he wrapped the final installment of the tales last year (11).
The 22 year old has appeared in a string of stage productions and he stars in new thriller The Woman in Black - and Radcliffe has received the seal of approval from Connery.
He's delighted the former 007 star has backed him, as he's in awe of the way the Scot handled his own career after stepping down from his iconic Bond role.
Radcliffe tells the Associated Press, "I did hear the other day from a friend of mine who is friends with Sean Connery and apparently Sean Connery asked him to pass along to me how well he thought I was doing and how well I seem to be handling everything and making good choices.
"For me, that was great because he is a great actor. He had this amazing start to his career in Bond and managed to create a fantastic career for himself outside that, so to hear that from him was very flattering."
