Every potter head who has watched Harry Potter after reading it surely has admired the titular protagonist. The role of Harry Potter (to whom you have looked forward from childhood) was played by the English actor and Producer Daniel Radcliffe.
He was born on 23rd July 1989 and was raised in London and made his acting debut at the age of 10 followed by his cinematic debut at the age of 12. In 2001, he starred in the famous Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and for the next 10 years continued to play its sequels. No doubt, it helped Daniel Radcliffe to become the highest-paid actor with unending fame and popularity.
Is Daniel Radcliffe Jewish
But is Daniel Radcliffe Jewish? This is the question for which you found this article and don’t worry we will answer this question clearly.
According to his family background, the father of Daniel Radcliffe, Alan George Radcliffe, is a Protestant (a follower of any Christian church which is separated from Roman Catholic Church) from Northern Ireland, while his mother, Marcia Jeannie Gresham, is a Jewish lady belonging to South Africa.
Well, it is even quite hard to believe that a person, who has celebrated Christmas in your favorite series of Harry Potter, actually practiced Jewish religion for a time but rather he prefers himself to be called an atheist. We claim this based on what he said in his interview in 2012:
“There was never [religious] faith in the house. I think of myself as being Jewish and Irish, despite the fact that I’m English.”
Now, another question that pops up in our mind is how much he practices his atheism? To answer this question is that he is relaxed in the case of atheism and does not preach it but he has huge respect for Richard Dawkins who does preach Atheism.
