Daniel Radcliffe stars in "The Woman in Black," opposite Ciarán Hinds and Janet McTeer, as Arthur Kipps.

Daniel Radcliffe is best known in the eponymous role of Harry Potter in the most successful film series of all time. Radcliffe has played the title role in all eight of the blockbuster films based on J.K. Rowling's best-selling books, beginning with 2001's "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." He reprised his role in "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" and the final installments, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Parts 1 and 2."

On January 1, 2012, Radcliffe finished a run as J. Pierrepoint Finch in Tony Award winner Rob Ashford's production of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," marking his Broadway musical debut. The show, which opened in March 2011, garnered great critical acclaim with Radcliffe receiving a Grammy nomination alongside co-star John Larroquette as principal soloists. Radcliffe also received performance nominations from the Drama Desk, The Outer Critic Circle, the Drama League and The Fred and Adele Astaire Awards. In addition, Broadway.com honored him with the Audience Choice Award for Favorite Actor in a Musical as well as Favorite Onstage Pair (with Larroquette).

Radcliffe has also just been voted Entertainer of the Year by Entertainment Weekly as the "most talented and original performer" of 2011. He also just won two Teen Choice Awards and a Scream Award, as well as receiving two nominations for the upcoming People's Choice Award for Favorite Movie Actor and Favorite Movie Star under 25.

Radcliffe is no stranger to the theater having starred as Alan Strang in both the 2007 West End and 2008 Broadway productions of Peter Shaffer's "Equus," winning the award for Best Leading Actor at the Annual Theatre Fan Choice Awards, organized by Broadway World, as well as Best Leading Actor and Breakthrough Performance Awards at the annual Broadway.Com Audience Awards. He also garnered both Drama League and Drama Desk nominations for his performance in the play. Both the London and Broadway productions of "Equus" were directed by Thea Sharrock and also starred Tony Award winner Richard Griffiths.

His other film credits include the Australian independent feature "December Boys" and the role of Jack Kipling in the true-life telefilm "My Boy Jack," about Rudyard Kipling's 17-year-old son, Jack, and the devastating effect his death in World War I, had on his family. The film also starred Kim Cattrall, Carey Mulligan and David Haig.

A lifelong fan of the hit series "The Simpsons," Radcliffe has lent his voice to the character of a brooding vampire named Edmund for the show's "Treehouse of Horror XXI" special, entitled "Tweenlight" which aired November 7, 2010. Previously, he made a guest appearance as himself in the award-winning BBC/HBO series "Extras" starring Ricky Gervais. He first appeared on screen as the young David Copperfield in the BBC/PBS presentation of the classic Charles Dickens novel.
