Happy birthday, Daniel Radcliffe!

Just a week and a day before the birthday of his onscreen alter ego Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe celebrates his birthday! Harry Potter’s big day? July 31. And Daniel Radcliffe’s birthday? July 23, when the actor will turn 22!

What a year it’s been for the young superstar! Not only did he bid farewell to the Harry Potter franchise which catapulted him to fame, but he also didn’t waste a second before heading back to the Great White Way in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Fans can currently catch him on Broadway performing the show eight times per week as the upwardly mobile J. Pierrepont Finch.

“I’m on Broadway at the moment, it’s an incredibly fun show, and I get to work with incredibly fun people, which means I get to play and have fun every night,” Radcliffe said during a recent interview on The Early Show (see the video below!).

What else does Daniel Radcliffe have in store? His next film post-Potter, The Woman in Black, comes out early next year, January 20, 2012. The young actor will revisit the supernatural world but in a period piece with a vengeful ghost — check out the creepy teaser trailer here!

“I’m excited for people to see it,” Daniel shared about his upcoming film. “It’s a supernatural thriller. I think people are going to see a different side of me, I hope.”

Congrats to Daniel Radcliffe on his unbelievable success both on the screen and stage! And best wishes for a happy birthday!
