Are Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood Related?

daniel_radcliffe_cover.jpg

When I first saw that cover magazine on Details magazine August 2007 issue I thought the guy was Elijah Wood. I was like, “oh Froto has a new movie?” :) But then I saw the name and it was none other than Harry Potter‘s alter-ego Daniel Radcliffe. I mean the blue eyes, tussled hair, and that come-hither look, at first glance it really does look like Elijah Wood to me.

What do you think? Maybe I need glasses? I’m just curious :)

      no i dont think they are related

    • Stageraven

      I have seen pics of Dan that do closely resemble Elijah. Lately though, as he’s coming into his own, the resemblance stops dead.

      There is something fiercely dark, dangerous and decadent about Mr. Radcliffe now.

      Throw in being well mannered, charming and humble……………………heaven help a heart!

    • chels

      yeh, no.
      there are deff. not related
      i love elijah, but i mean seriously.
      daniel is like god!

    • samara

      eu prefiro o elijah ele é muito mais bonito do que o daniel. elijah te amo

    • http://sthingiswrong.blogspot.com Julia

      That’s exactly what I thought when I came to the page – he looks just like Elijah Wood, but more rugged

    • http://MSN Wafa

      I dnt thnk they r related bt they are both too cute Dan is cuter…….

    • nightengale

      just like to add, I was actually looking for more adult type pictures of Daniel for this very purpose…I am a writer and I often use pictures of people that I think look like my characters as wall paper in order to keep them fresh in my mind. I had this idea for a story involving two brothers, one the older, etc. and noticed that elijah wood and daniel radcliffe were a perfect pairing, and then I came across this blip while looking for pictures to compare….I think that they absolutely look related. It not only stands to prove that both have a very similar air about them. I’m sure that they are very unique unto themselves, I’d hate to judge anyone on a superficial sort. But, they were both child actors, both coming nto adulthood in front of a public eye, both in a very popular screen role that somewhat keeps them penned in as far as image, and both are wildly terific actors. It would be intriguing to see them in a film together, as it would to hear what advice Elijah would offer to a blossoming Daniel about keeping one’s life together apart from the media…..

    • Erin

      OK, they look NOTHING alike. Dan’s more rugged. But I think Elijah’s is SOO much hotter. Yeah, sure they have the same hair and eye color but that’s about where the similarities end.

    • GirlFromHolland

      i now( and like) booth boys and their style. And you’re right Daniel look sometimes so much on Elijah that it’s really difficult to see. I excelly like Daniel more, maybe because hes a bit younger( i’m 14 now.). and if i watch the lord of the rings and after that Harry Potter five (or parts of 6) than i see almost the same face… Lots of my friends ask me also sometimes why i watch “the old films of Elijah” but its just parts of Harry Potter…Really difficult, but also Really cute ..
      Grtz from Holland, i hope you can read it (a)

    • Renae

      no way daniel is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY HOTTER HE IS DAMN SEXY

    • katelyn

      well of course they’re not related! but daniel does look startlingly like elijah wood, i thought that at first glance too. both of them are really good looking, but i think daniel is hotter! he looks so intense and so much older in this picture, it’s hard to believe that guy is harry potter!

      *dirty harry? what?? maybe dangerous, but not dirty! :P

    • daniela_radcliffe

      no……….
      i don’t think so
      daniel is daniel
      not elijah
      and do you know that now, elijah has so old face….. like my grand pa!
      U know? pairo rejo?? yeach, he is my grand pa…. and the face is related with
      elijah!!!
      so. daniel isn’t related with elijah>>>>
      NO

    • daniela_radcliffe

      daniel is so perfect
      i think daniel is so handsome and young of course
      please give my lovely kiss for him
      i dislike his girlfriend….Laura! she is like my house keeping in Jowo….. her name is Paiyuk, she is so old
      and she isn’t suitable with daniel.
      Laura…… Capede!!!!
      Jangan gila Donk!

      Jo Lali Nyuk!!!!!

    • Brittany

      i think dan is the hottest of all and plus i know everything there is to know about him besides the fact he got such a sexy body

    • Steelsheen

      i also made the same mistake when i first saw the Details magazine, i thought it was Elijah Wood (and not bothering with the blurbs in front) i began flipping through the magazine. it was when i began reading the piece that it dawned on me that it was Daniel Radcliffe. i was thinking “wth?! this is little Harry Potter?”

      they do have a lot in common hence one guy constantly being mistakened for the other: same facial structure, same hair color and type, same skin tone, same height, same blue eyes (although Elijah’s eyes are slightly larger and are a lighter shade of blue). not to mention they both play the main leads in wildly successful fantasy franchises.

      the one bit of funny trivia: Daniel Radcliffe, who plays bespectacled Harry Potter, has 20/20 vision. Elijah Wood, who plays sharp sighted Frodo Baggins, couldnt see five feet in front of him without glasses or contact lenses. :-D

    • AtyWood

    • Linda

      Daniel has said several times that he gets mistaken for ElWood and vice versa, and has signed ElWood’s autograph just for the hell of it. I like them both, but I ADORE Daniel. He is WAY too hot. (and I’m too old to admit I think that) :)

    • number one Dan Fan!

      uuuuuuhh….

      NO! Dan is so totally the best…
      so much fitter, cuter, funnier, hotter, better, and atogether much more.. well.. just the B.E.S.T!

      And of course they are not related. Dan is an only child but has two jack russell terriers called binka and nugget!
      But dan is soo fitter and this was just after/before equus so thats why he has the inda half beardy thing!

      Still looks gorge though!!!!! (As if he couldnt!)

      LOVE YOU DAN!<3

    • ray candra

      daniel kereen benget mirip gue

    • all knowing

      Daniel is good looking, but nobody is as beautiful as Elijah. I have never seen eyes like that – he is so otherwordly…nothing comes close..

    • kenzie

      Elijah is beautiful…..*sigh* LOTR are the best movies I have ever seen

      gourgeous eyes, gourgeous smile, gourgeous hair, gourgeous EVERYTHING…..he is amazing…

      Daniel……BLEH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      he should stay out of sight…Elijah rocks my socks off…:)

    • http://www.pottergasm.piczo.com Maggan

      There was speculation a while back when Daniel Radcliffe filmed December Boys in Australia. Apparently the people there were almost certain that he was Elijah Wood as well, however, I do not think that Daniel Radcliffe is related to him. I’ve seen pictures of Dan’s parents, and he’s a spitting image of them put together, however, they look nothing like Elijah Wood. Just a thought.. :>

    • Caroline

      hey! im from argentina—i love you elijah! you were beautiful in “the lord of the rings”…but i dont like your moustache!——–whel…thats not important. i love them

    • http://www.gjlgn.com janine

      It is because they both have such THICK NECKS! i mean, think about it! look at them!

    • bruna viveiros

      bom, sou brasileira e estou aqui(provavelmente) representando todas as brasileiras dizendo que:
      amo o trabalho de dan e ele está realmente bonito e sério na revista e que apesar de estar assim já um homem não vai deixar de representar o “meu” harry potter :)

    • emma and audrey

      Elijah Wood is way cuter than Dan. Sorry, but i find hobbits very attractive. Dan is a good actor but Elijah is cooooooler.

    • jessica steffany

      eu axo os dois lindos
      mas o ELIJAH WOOD
      ah sei lah pq mas ele é especial
      e aconpanho a carreira dele desde pequena jah
      axo ele lindo ,e faz um trabalho otimo..
      ele sabe como atuar..
      ele é tudo em!

    • Erica

      I personally think they look too much alike to not be related

    • Gail

      Frankly, I’d have Daniel for dessert any time. So charming, smart, funny, hot – (faint)……..

      Elijah, maybe.

    • Rachael-Marie

      I think they look extremely alike exept that now Danile is older he looks different and more mature than Elijah. Elijah being very handsome still has a childish look about him….though he is better looking.

    • Doody

      I think they are related they are extremely alike, but I don’t think they are twins or the same person so….I give:
      90% they are related
      10% they are not related
      0% they are the same person

    • miranda

      DANIEL LOOKS NOTHING LIKE ELIJAH, HE IS UGLY. ELIJAH IS EXTREMELY HOT BUT FRODO IS WAY HOTTER, I MEAN REALLY ELIJAH SHOULD GROW SOME LONG CURYLY HAIR. ELIJAH HAS SUCH A CUTE SMILE, SPECIALLY IN FOTR

    • http://HABOUBAH HABIBA

      I LOVE YOU ELIJAH WOOD+DANIEL RADCLIFFE

    • Meggles

      eehm miranda, please act normal! dan is hot!
      elijah is hot too, although i love Dan
      they do have (almost) the same smile

    • Nirmita Sharma

      No.nooo. no chance.
      El you dont deserve any praise now.
      of course when your hair was present you were really cute. At Radio Flyer and LOTR. You were perfect. Simply Perfect!

      But now Dan is the best! Dan, you’re so cute and Handsome. Its so much easier to fall in love with you again and again. I love and and have warched all of your movies and interviews(which were possible, i mean).I love you more ‘coz your mind is more beautiful than your looks and features are.
      I love you Dan. You ROCK!!!

    • http://thesoojin.com sooj

    • kickey

    • http://ncjdjdd.com afafffafgg

      they do look alike……but..DANIELS MIUCH HOTTEERRRRR <3

    • studboy

      I don’t think they are related, but this is proof of “God’s work” :)

      Before I knew better, when I first saw HP and LOTR I thought they were the same person–until I hear them speak…

      It would be cool if some crazy producer would cast them in the same movie: the Wand vs. the Ring–now we’re talking!

    • justpassin

      To the commentors against elijah or daniel:

      Geesh… Drama?
