This Harry Potter thing isn't really dying down, is it? You'd have thought that after all the millions of books, cinema tickets, DVDs and shameless cash-in merchandise, people would be getting sick of Harry Potter.
That isn't the case, though. The latest Harry Potter accomplishment is that someone has drawn a picture of the boy who plays Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe. However, this isn't a typically rubbish Harry Potter fan crayon scrawl of a crap-looking wizard with 'i love u majik hari poter' written underneath, it's a proper portrait of Daniel Radcliffe. And it's going up in the National Portrait Gallery and everything.
Daniel Radcliffe has been Harry Potter for five years now, and all that dressing up as a wizard and looking a bit earnest has meant that Daniel Radcliffe is worth £23 million. That's good for him; after all, he'll have trouble getting acting jobs after Harry Potter dies in the last movie – at least until the 2036 made-for-TV movie Harry Potter And The Middle Aged Tax Bill-Inspired Half-Hearted Reunion rolls around.
But until then, Daniel Radcliffe can enjoy the perks of his record-breaking Harry Potter mega fame. Not for Radcliffe the daytime TV-fuelled online rants against skinny models of JK Rowling or the apparent underage drinking shenanigans of the girl who plays Hermione. Oh no, Daniel Radcliffe is happy with having some bloke draw a picture of him with some pencils.
Stuart Pearson Wright – the man who once painted Prince Phillip with a big insect stuck to his nose – has sold pencil portraits of ten actors, including Daniel Radcliffe, Jeremy Irons and Alan Rickman, to the National Portrait Gallery. This makes Daniel Radcliffe the youngest ever non-Royal to have a portrait in the gallery. According to reports, Daniel Radcliffe attended three sittings with Pearson Wright, and seems excited enough about the portrait in a bland, stage-schooly kind of way:
"I've never sat for a portrait and found the whole experience fascinating. And I love the finished result."
Yeah, but is doesn't really look like him, does it? He's not even wearing a wizard's hat.
Portrait Of Potter As A Young Man – Telegraph
[story by Stuart Heritage]
I can understand artistic expression and all that, but as a portrait, it quite frankly does not look like him as a 14 year old (when he posed for it) or otherwise. Dan was/is quite handsome and this picture does him no justice at all. As I would think people would be quite disappointed when they go to see it, I think the artist should re-do the damn thing!!
oh!not a bad photo at all.Think of it dude the third horcrux already in his pocket.Even dumbledour doesnot know the whereabouts of next horcrux and all that stuff.Saw the ref of the “heavy locket thing” in the fifth book at grimauld palace?
this is disgusting. In my opinion he ruined his career. He is ugly, although he has a nice body :] that doesnt mean he needs to show it off!
he is handsome but in that picture he is not looking nice.but also he is a handsome boy and I love him.
Whatever. DR is fug.
