He does not only make an outstanding impression when it comes to his professional career, but fans keep loving him for his caring and loveable personality.

Today, September 22, we wish him only the best of everything on his 31st birthday. Stay as you are.

Daniel Radcliffe Reacting to Harry Potter Memes on Jimmy Fallon

On Thursday, September 13, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) attended the The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and reacted to Harry Potter memes.

During a Wednesday appearance on The Tonight Show to promote his new Broadway play The Lifespan of a Fact, our Harry Potter actor Daniel admitted that while he had seen funny memes of himself as Harry over the years, there were none that immediately came to mind.

Naturally, Jimmy Fallon then decided to show his guest some of his own personal favorites, including an image of young Harry holding a snitch with the Jay-Z-inspired text, “If you’re havin’ Quidditch problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but a snitch ain’t one.”

“You know, what’s cool about that stuff is that I never — as a kid and you’re just insecure at that age — I never felt cool at any point playing that character and sort of these things go like, ‘No, that was cool,’” Radcliffe mused. “People thought that was pretty cool.”

You can watch the entire clip above. Jimmy also asks Daniel about how he’s going to manage Fantasy football leagues while doing Sunday performances on Broadway. Enjoy!

His boss has given him a big assignment: to apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by legendary author D’Agata. But now Fingal has a huge problem: D’Agata made up a lot of his article. What starts professional quickly becomes profane.
