But we have to ask -- what happened? Daniel Radcliffe seemed like an average-sized kid in the first Harry Potter movie (2001). But he was still the tallest of the three -- taller than Emma Watson (Hermione), and Rupert Grint (Ron), but now as an adult, he's the shortest.

Daniel's father is an average-sized man (around 5'9" -- 5'10"), but perhaps Daniel has gone after his mother where height is concerned.

It is the way it is, and despite his short stature, Daniel has really achieved great success. He seems to have the same height and build as another popular actor of the bygone era -- Michael J. Fox but his resemblance to Elijah Wood is scary -- down to even their height.

In a WIRED Autocomplete interview, Daniel claimed to be 5'5 tall, but after comparing his height to that of a few celebrities, we think that he can look a bit shorter than Emma Watson who is around the 5'5" mark. Edged out by Hermione Granger isn't really as bad as it sounds...

The real height of Daniel Radcliffe is
