Daniel Radcliffe’s Original ‘Harry Potter’ Screen Test Will Give You All Kinds Of Feels.
Daniel Radcliffe's screen test for the Harry Potter film series has recently resurfaced and everyone is focusing on how adorable he is. While I cannot deny this truth, the video also points me to something more: Radcliffe's commitment to the craft of acting from a young age. If you have ever taken an acting class, you understand the discipline involved.
Radcliffe first expressed interest in drama as early as age five and debuted at age ten as David Copperfield on BBC One, a performance that convinced director Chris Columbus that he had found Harry Potter. Author J.K. Rowling praised this decision saying that Columbus could not have selected a better boy for the part. I assume that Radcliffe's parents literary agent Alan Radcliffe and casting agent Marcia Gresham - two people whose jobs were recognizing talent - contributed in some way to his success.
Now 26, Radcliffe has graduated onto more diverse roles such as the upcoming crime thriller Tokyo Vice based on the life of journalist Jake Adelstein, who made history when he became the first non-Japanese staff writer for the Yomiuri Shimbun.
