Harry Potter Cast Biographies
Harry Potter Cast - Daniel Radcliffe
Birthdate: July 23, 1989
Birthplace: Fulham, London, United Kingdom
Daniel Radcliffe got his acting start in a made-for-TV movie based on the Charles Dickens' book, David Copperfield. Next up was a flick called The Tailor of Panama starring none other than the former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan. Not a bad beginning for a 10 year-old. Of course his big break came in 2001 when he got the call saying he had been cast as wizard-in-training, Harry Potter. Daniel has been in all four Harry Potter movies and will begin filming the fifth flick, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, in early 2006. When he's not casting spells, Daniel enjoys playing his guitar, supporting the Fulham football team and writing stories.
Daniel Radcliffe Says... "I think I'm a tiny bit like Harry cuz I'd like to have an owl. Yeah, that's the tiny bit, actually."
Harry Potter Cast - Emma Watson
Birthdate: April 15, 1990
Birthplace: Oxford, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom
Aside from a few school plays, Emma Watson had never acted before landing the role of Hermoine Granger in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Now after finishing her fourth Harry Potter movie she has risen to international stardom. She became the youngest actress to be featured on the cover of Teen Vogue in November 2005 and it doesn't look like things will be slowing down for her any time soon. An average day for Emma is waking up at 6AM to head to the studio to shoot and not returning home until 9PM. Emma can speak French, German and Italian - which comes in handy with all the traveling she does!
Emma Watson Says... "It was unbelievable seeing me as an action figure! In a few months, toddlers all around the country will be biting my head off!"
Harry Potter Cast - Rupert Grint
Birthdate: August 24, 1988
Birthplace: Watton-at-Stone, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
Rupert Grint was such a big Harry Potter fan that as soon as he heard they were holding auditions for the first movie, he set to work. For his audition, Rupert preformed a rap he had written himself about his character, Ron Weasley! When Rupert turned 16 he decided to write his final exams and focus all of his attention on the Harry Potter flicks. Just like his co-star Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert enjoys to play the guitar, play football and listen to music (especially rap!).
Rupert Grint Says... "When I read the books, I imagined that the family of Ron Weasley was my family. After reading the books, I knew the Weasleys inside out."
