Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, Victor Frankenstein) is being honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 11:30am PST today, and we can watch it all go down live via Variety’s YouTube channel:
Radcliffe, 26, kicked off his film career in 2001 as Harry Potter in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This was a role that would last ten years, ending in 2011 with the final installment Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
The young actor was able to branch out a bit during his tenure as Harry Potter, starring in 2007’s December Boys and making his Broadway debut in 2008 in Equus.
Since the conclusion of the Harry Potter films, Radcliffe has taken on a number of genres including the horror film The Woman in Black (2012) and the romantic comedy What If (2013).
In addition to moviemaking, he starred in the 2012 TV series A Young Doctor’s Notebook, opposite Mad Men’s Jon Hamm.
We’re looking forward to seeing him star opposite James McAvoy in Victor Frankenstein as Igor on November 25, 2015.
Radcliffe has had a number of memorable roles, but one of our favorites was watching him play receptionist at Nylon Magazine:
He’s always a good sport, and we’re excited to see how he handles this afternoon’s festivities.
Update: Radcliffe did not disappoint. We expected some zingers from him. He kicked off his acceptance speech by saying, “Wow, this is all amazing. Thank you so much.” He took a brief break to address a fan in the audience, saying, “I would very quickly like to say to the guy in the back who keeps asking me to go over there, I can’t come over there right now. I’m doing something now. I have to do this first.” Aw, he’s so sweet. You can watch the ceremony in its entirety in the same YouTube clip above.
