London's Madame Tussauds has made Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe its youngest wax work ever created. Despite being immortalized at such a young age many thinks that the wax statue looks older with stubble on its face and a conservative suit.

Benn Lovett, an official at the wax museum, said the statue is made maturer than the real person to avoid redoing it in few years. He further explained that a Harry Potter look is also hindered. He said, "Daniel is nearly 18 and he has some serious acting roles under his belt and we wanted to reflect that. For the last couple of years, people have been asking for a Daniel Radcliffe figure and they said we should include him as a British star in his own right."
