Stuart Pearson Wright, who last year created the three-dimensional portrait of Harry Potter author JK Rowling has added actor Daniel Radcliffe to his collection of work. Daniel’s portrait, as well as nine others, will be unveiled at London's National Theatre on Wednesday evening before moving to the permanent display at the National Portrait Gallery. Daniel becomes one of the youngest sitters for an individual portrait in the National Portrait Gallery.
UPDATE: Hi-res photos, courtesy MuggleNet:
Daniel, who was 14 when he posed, had this to say about the experience:
I love it. Until recently, I'd seen a peek of it in the catalogue, but not actually seen the real thing. It was strange seeing myself as I was two years ago, not as I am now. If you look at each individual part of my face they look exactly like part of my face. Together it's surreal. It's a great honour to be in there among such amazing actors and actresses.
