Daniel Radcliffe turns 30 years old today. And what does that mean for his fans? Less a celebration of the fact than reflecting on how it makes them feel. Namely him being a grown up means we're ooooold.
The days of Radcliffe playing boy wizard Harry Potter are well over now with the last film in the magical series hitting cinemas eight years ago.
The actor first played the iconic role 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' back in 2001. That's nearly two decades ago people.
In fact one Tweeter pointed out how much he's grown (jaysus, we're still talking about him like he's a kid...) between then and now.
