Radcliffe was born in Hammersmith, London to parents Marcia Jeanine Gresham and George Radcliffe. He is an only child.
Radcliffe changed schools several times as a teen and was educated at three different private schools for boys: City of London School, Sussex House School, and Redcliffe School.
Radcliffe has stated in interviews that attending school was difficult once the first Harry Potter film came out, due to increasing hostility from the other students. However, he insisted that the hostility was mainly just kids being curious about the person who played Harry Potter rather than any real malice or jealousy.
As the acting started consuming most of his time, Radcliffe hired onset tutors for his high school education, but later revealed that he wasn’t a good student. He found schoolwork to be “really difficult” but still managed to get “A” grade for three Advanced Level examinations he sat for in 2006.
Radcliffe decided not to go to college and part of it was because his fame would make it difficult to have a normal college experience; but other than that, he already had a clear entry to his career path which was to become an actor and screenwriter.
Radcliffe started his acting career on the BBC One show David Copperfield in 1999. This was followed by a spot in the film The Tailor of Panama in 2001 and his first performance as Harry Potter the same year. Over the next decade, Radcliffe continued to play the young wizard, which led to him becoming one of the most famous actors in Hollywood and one of the highest paid.
After his role in Harry Potter, Radcliffe was cast in the 2012 The Woman in Back. He later got involved in multiple film projects in the mid-2000s, choosing to play everything from a typical bad guy to odd, eccentric characters. Radcliffe played the character Igor in the 2013 sci-fi Victor Frankenstein and an FBI agent in the film Imperium, released in 2006.
In 2007, Radcliffe expanded his performances into the stage, performing at Broadway and West End.
He received praise for his performance in the dark comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan and the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
Radcliffe has been an active campaigner for children’s rights and has contributed to charities such as Demelza Care for Children. His contribution to charity led to an award by the Trevor Project in 2011.
Radcliffe splits his time between London’s Fulham area and New York where he owns an apartment in the West Village neighborhood. He has been romantically involved with the actress Erin Darke since 2012 when the two met while filming Kill Your Darling.
In 2008 Radcliffe was diagnosed with the neurological condition dyspraxia, which he explained, had made it difficult to perform simple activities like writing. He described in an interview how the condition affected him during his school years, saying he felt that he was “crap at everything, with no discernible talent”.
Radcliffe has expressed a passion for rap music and “lyrically intricate, fast songs”. He spoke about his problem with alcohol during his youth, praising his family for supporting him when he struggled to handle fame. Radcliffe became a teetotal in 2010 after years of using alcohol as a coping mechanism during stressful times.
Radcliffe was raised a Jew but has stated that he doesn’t consider himself as being religious in the traditional sense. He was ranked the highest paid actor on Forbes rich-list 2009, making him the richest teenager in England.
Radcliffe earned $1 million for the first Harry Potter film and received $15 million for the sixth. By 2020, the UK’s Sunday Times estimated his net worth as at $110 million.
