Daniel Radcliffe


  1. Matt Smith, Doctor Who, TV, 2010.     Harry Potter as the 11th Doctor? Aunty BBC thought again after realising he’d collected $14m for just one of his Potter outings.  (By 2013, it was estimated he was Britain's richest young celeb = worth 56.18m pounds sterling!
  2. Andrew Garfield, The Amazing Spider-Man, 2010.
  3. Eddie Redmayne, Birdsong, TV, 2011.     It took the one-time 007 book writer Sebastian Faulks more than a decade to get his WW1 novel into cinemas. In 2006, he reported: “All the original actors are now too old - Ralph Fiennes and before him Daniel Day-Lewis. More recently they were talking about Orlando Bloom... By the time it gets made, the star of Harry Potter could end up being old enough for it - is he a good actor?” Hollywood even insisted upon Jake Gyllenhaal for the UK hero. Finally, Working Title TV made it with BBC and NBC as a mini-series with the Old Etonian of the hour - from Tess of the D’Urbervilles, The Pillars of the Earth, My Week With Marilyn. His French lover was played by Radcliffe’s Potter kisser, Clémence Poésy.Radcliffe, meantime, had become   the UK’s richest "young celebrity - worth £56.18m, in front of Robert Pattinson, £44.16m.
  4. Martin Freeman, The Hobbit trilogy2011.
  5. Ezra Miller, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. 2014.
  6. James McAvoy, It Chapter Two, 2018.  At one time The Penguin, The Rock, Peter Quill, Harry Potter, Deadpool, The Green Hornet and Doctor Who were suggested for the adult Bill Denbrough - ie, Danny De Vito, Dwayne Johnson, Chris Pratt, Daniel Radcliffe, Ryan Reynolds, Seth Rogan, David Tennant. Also in the mix: Zac Efron, Will Ferrell, Sean Hayes, Ashton Kutcher, Seth Rogan and such off-the-wall outsiders as UK comics Russell Brand, James Corden, Eddie Izzard and Matt Lucas!  McAvoy was the real McCoy - and one of the biggest Stephen King fans around. Bill Skarsgård had more fun as Pennywise this time.  No literal nightmares about fighting the clown, no kid actors scared by him in scenes, his five-hour make-up cut by half  and less dialogue…  in the 262nd of King’s staggering 313 screen credits. (King Kameo: Pawnbroker).
