This Video Of Daniel Radcliffe Auditioning For “Harry Potter” Is Actual Magic

There’s practically no better pick-me-up to turn your real world-induced frown upside-down (or more like right-side-up?) than revisiting the “Harry Potter” series.

The books, movies, Wizarding World, your own imagination, it really doesn’t matter which version of the series you choose because they’re all pure potions for happy.

So, to make the start of this weekend a little brighter, the internet has unearthed the ultimate throwback, a video of Daniel Radcliffe screen-testing for his eponymous role as the Boy Wizard.

And it hardly needs to be said, but it’s completely spellbinding.
