Daniel Radcliffe reads Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Radcliffe reads the first chapter of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone/Sorcerer’s Stone which was written by JK Rowling, as part of Harry Potter At Home.

Daniel will be the first of many exciting contributors to help us read through the first Harry Potter book. Other contributors will include David Beckham, Stephen Fry and Eddie Redmayne.

Each will be reading different sections of this iconic book – with its themes of family, friendship, courage and overcoming adversity – to families around the world. We love that some of the best-loved names from across the wizarding world will be bringing to life the first book in the series, to delight new and old fans alike.

As the figurehead of the hugely popular films for so many years, this is an incredibly special video of Daniel revisiting Harry’s first adventure and experiences as he enters the Wizarding World for the very first time.  – this time not on a film set, but through the pages of the first book. For eight years Daniel was the “perfect Harry”. So this is sure to delight Potter fans, young and old all across the world.
