Daniel Radcliffe was a cute child actor with just two credits to his name when he was chosen to play Harry Potter in the film adaptations of J. K. Rowling's books. His father was a literary agent with the show business giant, International Creative Management (ICM), and his mother was a casting agent. In one of his first interviews after landing the role, Radcliffe said he had tried reading the first book in the Potter series a few years earlier, but gave up only partway through.

[1] "My mum was of Jewish blood and my Dad was Protestant... I'm very interested in religion as something to study. But I'm not a religious person in the slightest." (Interview on The Today Show (Australia,, not the US show by the same name, December 2006). Later, Radcliffe elaborated: "I'm an atheist, but I'm very relaxed about it. I don't preach my atheism, but I have a huge amount of respect for people like Richard Dawkins who do. Anything he does on television, I will watch." (Esquire, August 2009)
