Stuart Pearson Wright, who last year created the three-dimensional portrait of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has added actor Daniel Radcliffeopens in new window to his collection of work.

Daniel's portrait, as well as nine others, will be unveiledopens in new window 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:

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.

Additional portraits of fellow Potter actors Alan Rickmanopens in new window and Timothy Spallopens in new window will also be showing at the National Portrait Gallery.

The Guardian also has a report hereopens in new window about the portrait in which the artist discusses working with Dan.
