It is often interesting to see where an actor’s career goes after completing a major movie franchise. Even more interesting is how a child-actor continues after their star-making role. While some stars crash and burn (see Home Alone’s Macaulay Culkin), others grow and thrive (like Leon: The Professional’s Natalie Portman). A particularly interesting career is that of Daniel Radcliffe. Instead of continuing to make high-budget Hollywood films after completing the Harry Potter franchise, Radcliffe chose a different route, starring in a unique variety of both Hollywood and indie films. His selection-taste in his film roles is what makes Radcliffe an important actor to watch. I set out to watch all of Radcliffe’s post-Harry Potter films and rank them from the sublime indie roles to the the rather boring block-buster supporting characters.
