Daniel Radcliffe recently wrapped the comedic action film Guns Akimbo in New Zealand and Germany. He currently stars on Broadway in the acclaimed original play Lifespan of a Fact. Last year he starred in the survivalist film Jungle, the true-life story of Yossi Ghinsberg who was stranded alone in the Amazon jungle, as well as Beast of Burden playing a drug runner with only an hour to deliver his illegal cargo.
Radcliffe has also starred opposite Michael Caine in Now You See Me 2, and opposite Paul Dano in A24’s indie hit Swiss Army Man, as well as in Imperium, a thriller inspired by real events about white supremacists in America. He also won rave reviews for his performance as “Rosencrantz,” opposite Josh McGuire’s “Guildenstern,” in Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead at The Old Vic, London. And in 2016, he completed a sell-out run of Privacy, a timely play at New York City’s The Public Theater about the digital age and technology.
Prior to this, Radcliffe starred opposite James McAvoy in the feature film Victor Frankenstein and in the BBC telefilm The Gamechangers. In 2014, he starred in the horror-thriller Horns and the romantic comedy What If, and in the previous year, Sony Pictures Classics’ Kill Your Darlings. On stage, he starred as “Billy” in The Cripple of Inishmaan, Martin McDonagh’s comic masterpiece. The play made its way to Broadway from London’s West End, where it debuted in the summer of 2013.
Since completing the final installment in the series of eight Harry Potter films in 2010, Radcliffe quickly proved himself to be a diverse talent. In 2011, he starred in a ten-month sell-out run of the Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. The following year Radcliffe starred in the horror/thriller The Woman in Black. He also starred opposite Jon Hamm in two seasons of the TV mini-series A Young Doctor’s Notebook, a comedy/drama based on a collection of short stories by celebrated Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov.
Radcliffe first appeared on stage in 2007 as “Alan Strang,” playing opposite Richard Griffiths in Peter Shaffer’s Equu’. Directed by Thea Sharrock, the play then transferred from London’s West End to Broadway in 2008.
A lifelong fan of The Simpsons, Radcliffe has lent his voice to the show three times. First, to the character of a brooding vampire named “Edmund” for the show’s “Treehouse of Horror XXI” special entitled “Tweenlight,” which aired November 2010. He then voiced the character “Diggs,” a new transfer student whom “Bart” befriends. Previously, Radcliffe made a guest appearance as himself in the HBO/BBC series Extras. He has also lent his voice to Robot Chicken and BoJack Horseman.
