Daniel Radcliffe was thrust into instant stardom when he was cast as the title character of the Harry Potter film franchise, a franchise that has gone on to become the most successful franchise in box office history. Today, the star of the film series turns 23 years old.
We have and will continue to see Dan rise and challenge himself in a large variety of roles both in films and on-stage productions. With incredible acting talent and a tremendous personality, the sky is the limit for the long time Harry Potter star.
