The Evolution of Daniel Radcliffe (PHOTOS)

Daniel Radcliffe has come a long way since first being cast as “The Boy Who Lived” for 2001’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, gaining a vast fortune and securing lifelong fame in under a decade. His face is universally recognizable too, although it has changed a great deal since the early years.

Celebuzz is taking a nostalgic look back at Potter stars, this time compiling twenty-one photos of Daniel (because he’s 21) since 2000 — before the first Potter film came out — to just this week. Click through to study the evolution of Daniel Radcliffe, and let us know what you think about his gradual change in the comments section.
