Daniel Radcliffe: From Boy Wizard to Man Wizard

Hired by Chris Columbus for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone at the age of 11, Daniel Radcliffe’s been playing a wizard for half his life. And over the past decade, we’ve watched him grow from a sheepish kid into a young adult with enough confidence to perform pantsless on Broadway. As the final installments in the Potter series grow ever closer, take a look at this time-lapse slideshow, in which we follow Radcliffe from his first-ever movie premiere through today. (And check in later this week, when we do the same for his co-stars, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson.) They grow up so fast!

Other Growth Charts: Rupert Grint: From Sidekick to Star
Emma Watson: From Classmate to Fashion Plate
