    We have Harry Potter to thank for many things, but the gift of Daniel Radcliffe is certainly one of the best fans have received from the wizardly franchise. Having grown up in the spotlight, the actor has had his struggles and has been very open about them. He always seems to be working on exciting new projects, and he’s likewise always willing to have fun with the press events surrounding them. (See: his San Diego Comic-Con panel.) And finally, he’s open-minded and very much aware of the amount of influence that comes with his level of fame. In an interview with J.K. Rowling, the actor joked that he could’ve formed a dictatorship during the last movie premiere, considering how many people collapsed at his feet.

    Radcliffe also consistently calls out Hollywood's problematic hierarchies, sexism, and anti-queer rhetoric, all while remaining humble. We’re celebrating his talent, humility, and sharp wit on his 26th birthday. Daniel Radcliffe (unlike Daniel Boringcliffe) is a gift that keeps on giving.

    He sorted different celebrities into Hogwarts houses.

    We all know our Hogwarts houses, but Radcliffe took it one step further and sorted celebrities into theirs. His sorting of Kanye sounds exactly like something the Sorting Hat would say.
