Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Alan Radcliffe (born July 23, 1989) is a British actor best known for playing the main character, Harry Potter, in the films Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and its sequel Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Radcliffe's parents, Alan Radcliffe and Marcia Gresham, discouraged their only child from showbusiness when, at age 5, he said he wanted to perform. However, they must have soon changed their minds, as in December 1999, he made his first on-screen appearance as the young David Copperfield[?] in the BBC's televised version of the Dickens novel David Copperfield. This was followed in 2001 by his first film appearance, as Mark Pendel in The Tailor of Panama[?].

Radcliffe will also star in the third Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, scheduled for release in 2004.
