Most of us know him as Harry Potter, but Daniel Radcliffe is a star who has so much more to give the world than just to make the famous movies come alive on screen. An up and coming actor, he is shedding his stereotype and going for roles that are more challenging and edgy. An English-born actor, he is quickly making a name for himself. Born Daniel Jacob Radcliffe July 23, 1989, he has been performing on stage since the age of 10. The son of both a literary and casting agent, who were both themselves child actors, he was primed to take to the silver screen.
One would assume that Daniel’s big break was his role in Harry Potter, and it was in a roundabout way. His real breakthrough was his first film in David Copperfield at the age of 10. When they were casting for the role of Harry Potter, his parents did not want him to be even considered for the movies, knowing that it would be a seven-year commitment in the United States. Their keeping it from him did not work. When the director of the movies, Chris Columbus, saw his acting on the film David Copperfield, he sought out Radcliffe to offer him the part. Insisting that he was the perfect actor to portray the character on the big screen, he refused to consider other actors. His parents originally declined the offer, but when adjustments were made to location and length of time for filming, they agreed to allow him to do the film.
Not knowing the potential of the film, Radcliffe was offered an undisclosed seven figure salary for the first film. Daniel insists that he never did it for the money, so the amount received is something that is not important. After the success of the Harry Potter series had come to an end, there were many who wondered if Radcliffe could ever breakout of the Harry Potter role and transcend to other ones. In 2009, he was cast in his first debut since the franchised films, in The Tailor of Panama. From there he did a series of films that have been met with critical acclaim and praise for his ability to overcome the stereotype.
Thanks to the Harry Potter films, Daniel is worth an estimated $110 million, meaning that he never has to work again if he doesn’t want. Money has never been a motivating force for this young actor. He works for the acclaim and the entertainment, not the monetary value. He is famous around the world, having a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and being the youngest non-royal UK citizen to hold a portrait space in the National Portrait Gallery. Not many young stars can achieve the kind of fame that Radcliffe has by the age of 24, nor can they have the type of wealth that he has. Taking it all in stride, he strives to be a more acclaimed actor, not a wealthier.
