Daniel Jacob Radcliffe better known as Daniel Radcliffe is an English actor best known as Harry Potter in the eponymous film series. He has also made his reputation as a very dramatic child actor where he played in BBC One's 1999 TV film David Copperfield which was his acting debut.
Apart from his recognition as a versatile actor in the E-town, he is also regarded as one of the short actors of Hollywood. He is not so short either but when you are standing among the 6 footers then it really makes you realize that you are really a short guy.
When we talk about the height of the Hollywood actors, then we can see there is almost every actor has got the very attractive height where their average height is about 6 feet. However, there are some numbers of actors who are worried just because they have attained short height.
Very famous actor Daniel Radcliffe
Daniel Radcliffe is among those short actors who are mind blowing with their acting skills but are not taken as attractive personalities regarding their physical appearance (height). Daniel has got a height of 165 Cm which makes him stand on just 5 feet 4 inches.
He is obviously short but he doesn't think his height has really mattered on his career. In fact, he has once said asked whether his height has held him back in Hollywood. Just have a look what he replied there,
I don’t think so. Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise have very different careers, and they’re both about the same height as I am. I could play a soldier. The minimum height for a marine is five feet, and I’m well above that. If you’re asking, ‘Can you play a really (bleeping) tall person?’ No, obviously not. Can I play a black guy? For similar reasons, no. I couldn’t play something I wouldn’t take myself seriously in. I wouldn’t be able to take myself seriously as the quarterback in a football movie, which is my one legitimate gripe. I would love to be in a football movie. The only part I would get is the general manager."
We too think that his short height hasn't affected his acting career as acting is a profession where it definitely needs to be attractive but justifying the character is taken as a more important factor so he is a very brilliant actor from our point of view.
Radcliffe put his steps on acting since his very early age so that he often faced some kind of problems on his regular study. So as when his acting career started to consume his schedule, he continued his education with the help of on-set tutors.
Radcliffe got his early recognition as an actor with his role of Harry Potter on the eponymous film series which in actual is the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. In 2000, he was asked for the audition for the role of Harry by the producer David Heyman where he got a selection after a number of auditions.
The movie ultimately became the breakthrough movie which provided him a huge recognition across the world where he got the 7 figure salary for his role. He played the leading role in the all 8 sequels of the blockbuster movie after which he started to be recognized as Harry Potter rather than his real name.
The final series of the film came in 2011 when the movie grossed $168 million in its opening weekend. Then, Radcliffe had to put his most famous character to rest and he told he is gonna miss the role throughout his life and he also lamented being a superb movie, it didn't claim any of the Oscar Award.
Other than his appearance in Harry Potter, he has also worked in some very famous movies like The Woman in Black, Horns, Trainwreck, Swiss Army Man and so on which gave him recognition other than as Harry Potter. He actually is very happy with what he has got from his career in acting.
