Biography


Although his parents are closely related to entertainment field due to their occupations, Daniel Jacob Radcliffe actually had been kept from the show business since he was still at such a young age. Being a literary agent of ICM and a casting agent, Alan and Marcia Gresham Radcliffe probably just wanted their only child to spend his life normally like other children did. Nevertheless, little Daniel's love to acting was unstoppable despite the discouragement as he was eagerly involved in the stage productions of his school. Looking upon his enthusiasm, the couple eventually softened and allowed him to enter the film industry. Marcia even helped her son to send his picture to BBC television for the audition of "David Copperfield" in which Daniel later earned the role of young Copperfield in 1999.

Born on July 23, 1989 in Fulham, London, Daniel was merely ten years old in 1999, yet his talent was clearly visible to everyone, including Kate Harwood, the producer of "David Copperfield." "He has a particular quality of naturalness and innocence," she complimented. "The camera really loves him, and other children don't feel threatened by him. One normally dreads working with child actors, but in his case he was wonderful. We cast him for his special qualities of gentleness and watchfulness. He has those in spades. He has a great deal of charm and simplicity." Perhaps it was this quality within him that led this adorable young actor to be in the cast of his big screen debut, "The Tailor of Panama" (2001), starring alongside Hollywood notable actors, such as Pierce Brosnan and Geoffrey Rush.
