Remember how cute Daniel was when he began playing Harry Potter? He may have had some struggles alone the way, but Daniel's definitely succeeded at being a talented, jail-free, and successful adult actor.
From child wizard to . . . nude horse lover? Daniel stripped down to his birthday suit for his leading role in the stage production of Equus and officially broke free of his innocent persona!
Daniel's been rocking the Broadway stage as the lead in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and any straight man who can sing and dance in a bow tie is one sexy fella in our book.
While Daniel's dating track record has included a producer's daughter, an Equus understudy, and now his current girlfriend, who was a production assistant he met on set, he never dated his Harry Potter costars. We think it's great that he's not one of the many actors who get involved with their costars, instead dating someone "normal."
Daniel isn't shy about opening up about his love for girlfriend Rosie Coker. He told Parade, "When Rosie's here, every day seems better. Ultimately, I think, it comes down to that — having somebody in your life who makes you happier than you thought you could be." How sweet is that?
Daniel also shared with Parade his involvement with The Trever Project, which is a charity that works to prevent young gay people from committing suicide. He said, "People need it. The suicide rate for gay teens is four times that of straight kids. I think that any free-thinking person who becomes very wealthy and has strong opinions on things would get involved with something like The Trevor Project or scholarships for schools or whatever. Fame is very useful in directing attention toward those things." Daniel's big heart has us swooning.
Did we forget to mention that Daniel's also just plain adorable? He's got a great head of hair, baby blues, and a British accent — and that's just the icing on the uber-talented cake. We aren't embarrassed to admit we have a crush on the wiz-kid, and we can't wait to see what he's up to next!
