A Look at Daniel Radcliffe
As an actor, Daniel Radcliffe has established himself as a household name. At seventeen he played the title role in Peter Shaffer’s Equus, a play about a psychotic teen who blinds six horses with a hoof pick. This role is quite different from typical teenage roles and was a huge hit. He was also offered a Broadway spot. Radcliffe’s filmography also includes How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, Cripple of Inishmaan and Privacy.
Radcliffe began her career as an actor on television and then made the transition to stage acting. She starred in Equus in 2007, and again in Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan. She also starred in Privacy and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, both of which were produced at the Old Vic. She also has been active in supporting gay rights organizations and has filmed a public service announcement for the Trevor Project.
Radcliffe’s next film, “Kill Your Darlings”, is a biographical drama about Beat Generation poet Allen Ginsberg’s relationships with a group writers at Columbia University in early 1940s. It was praised by critics as a powerful, sincere biographical drama about the early days of American hippie culture. Radcliffe carries off the role of a burgeoning lawyer with newfound demonic powers.
Despite being a star, Radcliffe has a personal history with alcohol abuse. He admitted to drinking for two years, and has since gotten sober. His sobriety came after a second attempt at sobriety. Although it took a few years, he has remained sober since 2013.
Young Daniel Radcliffe was the first professional actor to enter the acting profession. He starred in the 2001 film adaptation of Dickens’ novel “The Young David Copperfield.” At the age of 10, Radcliffe auditioned for the title role of the Harry Potter movie, and was offered the role after an intense eight-month process. Radcliffe’s breakthrough role was in the film, originally called Sorcerer’s Stone.
After leaving the Harry Potter series, Radcliffe acted in a number of films. His first film, Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone made him a worldwide superstar. His role as the orphan wizard Harry Potter was a huge success and he received many accolades. His next two films, Harry Potter and The Woman in Black (2012) and Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets (2013), were equally successful. He was also the star of the surreal comedy Jungle (2017).
