Daniel Radcliffe may be best known as Harry Potter, but he’s done many roles since the magical movies. Here are seven roles you may have forgotten he’s done.
Daniel Radcliffe became a household name as Harry Potter, the Boy Who Lived. From the age of 10, he grew up in the eyes of his fans and it’s hard for many to see him as anyone else. However, he has had a successful career in some of the most quirky roles.
Many of these roles are likely ones you’ve forgotten. After all, the movies just haven’t been as big or popular as Harry Potter. He’s not played a character who has taken on the Dark Lord, sacrificing his life to save his friends and the whole world.
These roles are all worth watching. They show Radcliffe’s acting abilities. You’ll quickly forget that you’re watching Harry Potter, as Radcliffe becomes the new characters. He steps into their worlds, bringing the universes to life in ways that he managed to bring J.K Rowling’s universe to life onscreen.

#7. December Boys: Maps
Movie summary: Four boys who are orphans have become the closest of friends. However, one summer, they all start competing for the love and attention of the same family in hope of finding a new home.
Why you need to watch: Maps, played by Daniel Radcliffe, is the eldest of the four boys. Close to turning 17, he knows that his time is coming to an end. Nobody will want him now, but he still craves a family.
It’s a coming of age story for the four orphans, as they debate whether they need family or not. Maps is the one that struggles the most, especially as he unveils secrets and goes through love and heartbreak. This is one of those movies to watch when you want to see the goodness in humanity, while also seeing children learning who family really is—and maybe they had it all along.
