Meet the new additions to the Downton Abbey cast in season 4!
“Daniel Radcliffe got his start on Masterpiece.
As a few Harry Potter fanatics already know, it was his role as the young David Copperfield in the 1999 BBC adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic that helped Radcliffe eventually earn the role of the famous boy wizard — which he got after he impressed his co-star, Dame Maggie Smith, in part by walking right up to her and asking if he should call her “Dame.” Radcliffe says Smith burst out laughing, and told him “Absolutely not!” Eventually it was her recommendation that scored Radliffe the role of a lifetime.”
