Daniel Radcliffe's Potter art

September 5th, 2010

Daniel Radcliffe has artwork made by his 'Harry Potter' pals hanging in his lounge.

The actor - who plays the titular wizard character in the film franchise - is thrilled by the giant canvas he was given for his 21st birthday, despite the limited creative prowess of his co-stars.

He said: "For my birthday this year, the idea was to get a lot of the people in the cast and crew to contribute some art and it was going to be a masterpiece! I'm not sure it is, but I love it because I know everyone on it."

The British actor - who has played the iconic character since 2001 - recently finished shooting the two-part 'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows', and admits it has been hard work filming two movies in one go.

Discussing progress earlier this year, he said: "We're sneaking up on 'Eyes Wide Shut' as the record holder for the longest shoot - although I suppose this is two films, so how they stretched that into an 18-month shoot I'll never quite know. It's great, it's still good but it doesn't feel like it's ever going to end."

The final installation of the franchise, 'Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows', is to be released in two parts. The first will open in cinemas in November, and the second in July next year.
