Daniel Radcliffe turned 23 years old on Monday, celebrating 13 years in front of the camera.

His first on-screen role was aged ten in BBC One's 1999 television film David Copperfield, but it was, of course, for his casting as the boy wizard Harry Potter when he was 11 that he is - and probably forever will be - best known.

His ten years as Potter, alongside Rupert Grint as best friend Ron Weasley and Emma Watson as studious Hermione Granger, starring in the biggest film franchise of all time helped make Radcliffe the richest young actor in the UK under 30, with an estimated £54m earnings.

He'd have every right to sit back and enjoy his wealth now he's waved goodbye to magical Hogwarts, but instead Radcliffe has done that rare thing of converting from a successful child actor to a hardworking adult star.

His first post-Potter role was the hit gothic chillerThe Woman In Black, and he is set to portray Allen Ginsberg in the upcoming thriller drama Kill Your Darlings. He'll also be voicing the role of Pinocchio in a darker version of the classic children's fairy tale, due to be released in 2014.
