Daniel Jacob Radcliffe was born in 1989 in West London and is best known for playing Harry Potter in the Harry Potter Phenomenon. Which lead to him spending 12 years wearing round goggle-like glasses and waving a wand around while shouting out odd things like “Expelliarmus”.

In a bid to show us all that he had grown up he decided to perform onstage in Equus, a play about a stable boy who is obsessed with horse. In this he famously had to get out his own magic wand out every night (We mean his willy!).

He appeared in a very funny episode of Extras, where he played an exaggerated version of himself. The Simpsons also featured Daniel in a special episode where they created a Twilight spoof.

DanRad lost his virginity, at 16, to one of the hairdressers on Harry Potter, who was seven years his senior. But poor Dan is unlucky in love and has remained single after splitting with longterm girlfriend Laura O’Toole, who he met whilst appearing in Equus,  in 2010.

In 2010 it was reported that Radcliffe is worth a whooping £28.5 million, which bizarrely makes him richer than Prince William and Harry. He spends his fortune on books.
