Actor Daniel Radcliffe’s life modified without end when he was cast as Harry Potter, however there was a time when he wished to quit being an actor. Casting director Janet Hirshenson as soon as recalled the story of how Radcliffe, and his co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have been cast within the series.
She advised the Huffington Post in 2015 that the method was very intense, due to writer JK Rowling’s demand that solely British actors be cast. Besides, Harry wanted to be of a particular age, and have inexperienced eyes. “For Harry, to complicate things, I needed a blue or green-eyed kid because part of Harry is his green eyes or blue-green, but they couldn’t be brown eyes, so that was another elimination thing. We said, ‘Oh, drat! He’s great, but he has brown eyes,’” she said.

When they discovered Radcliffe, Hirshenson said that ‘he just wasn’t . He didn’t need to be an actor anymore.’ But director Chris Columbus and producer David Heyman have been fairly impressed with him. “One evening, David Heyman the producer went to the theatre and he knew Daniel’s father, who was an agent … so the producer ran into Daniel and his dad and said to Daniel, ‘Why don’t you come in and audition? Think about it.’ So he said, ‘OK.’”
Hirshenson continued, “We must’ve had about six Harrys, only two or three Hermiones ― there wasn’t a lot ― and there was probably five-ish Rons.” She said that Watson instantly caught everybody’s consideration. “For the Hermiones, as soon as Emma came on, there were six of us in the screening room. We just gasped. It was like, ‘Oh my God.’ Like, ‘Whoaaa!’ She took up the screen,” she said. For Ron, it was Grint’s face that offered it.
But Harry was proving to be a bit troublesome to cast, and it got here to Radcliffe and one other actor. “We went back and looked at Daniel again,” she continued. “The other kid was terrific and very vulnerable and very Harry-looking, but besides that, Harry was going to become a very powerful kid, too. And Daniel had both sides. He was very vulnerable, but the other kid ― it was like, he [was] not going to have the balls that Daniel has, to put it that way.”

But Columbus and the producers have been certain. Hirshenson recalled all three younger actors being introduced up to Columbus’ workplace, with out telling them that they’d been chosen. “After we chose, they pulled the three of them up to Chris’s office, not telling them they got the part, but they were standing there, the three of them, looking at each other, probably figuring, ‘I think we may be it.’ So they told them they had it. ‘Yay, yay, yay,’ and then they started chattering amongst themselves because they hadn’t known each other very much. Emma asked Daniel if he liked the books and he said, ‘Yeah, I like WWF better, and she did a harumph or some Hermione thing that was so perfect, just as herself. ‘[Gasp] WWF!’ And we just all were like, ‘Whoa, this is them.’”
