Daniel Radcliffe Reads Harry Potter For First Video In New Series

Harry Potter at Home is a new weekly series in which various stars read chapters from JK Rowling's first Harry Potter novel.


Daniel Radcliffe last played Harry Potter in screen nearly a decade ago, but the actor continues to be most associated with the role of the boy wizard. Radcliffe has returned to the world of magic and Muggles this week by reading a chapter of JK Rowling's first Potter book for a new online series.

Titled Harry Potter at Home, the series will feature various celebrities taking turns to read a different chapter of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (or Sorcerer's Stone to use the American title). Radcliffe kicks off today, May 5, by reading Chapter One, "The Boy Who Lived."
