Radcliffe 'Youngest Wax Idol'

by | 02 July 2007

HARRY POTTER actor DANIEL RADCLIFFE has become the youngest person to be immortalised in wax at London's famous Madame Tussauds museum.

The actor, who will turn 18 later this month, has been modelled by the museum to stand alongside Hollywood legends such as TOM CRUISE, BRAD PITT and JULIA ROBERTS.

Radcliffe's fifth outing as the boy wizard, THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX, is set to make its London premiere tomorrow night following a highly frenzied reception already in Japan.

But the unveiling of Radcliffe's wax persona shows he has tried to distance himself from the character of Potter, as he is shown in a simple suit rather than in robes with a wand.

The move follows Radcliffe's recent performance in the stage play of Equus, where he bared all as a crazed stable boy.

Ben Lovett, of Madame Tussauds London, said: "With his 18th birthday around the corner and stage roles like Equus under his belt, Daniel has become a young British acting force to be reckoned with.

"It's been great for the studio's sculptors to recreate someone who we've all watched growing up on the big screen."
