Where Else You Recognize MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG’S Daniel Radcliffe From

 by Luke Maynus. @luke.maynus.

The astounding success of the Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along has been heavily attributed to the dynamic performances and star power of the show’s leads: Jonathan Groff and Lindsay Mendez. However, many audience members leaving the theatre have been left asking: who is their co-star, Daniel Radcliffe, and why does he look so familiar? 

The Broadway Beat has got you covered. We’ve detailed five of Radcliffe’s most noteworthy public appearances that you might recognize him from!

1.He’s the long term partner of professional actress, Erin Darke. Since 2012, Daniel Radcliffe has been the arm candy of professional actress, Erin Darke! Darke is most well known for her work as Mary on the Amazon Prime Video series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. As of April 2023, the couple has welcomed their first child!

2. He performed Blackalicious’s “Alphabet Aerobics” on Jimmy Fallon. Who doesn’t love the late night comedy institution The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon? We’re sure you’ve seen the now viral clip of Radcliffe expertly reciting the words to one of the most lyrically intricate rap songs of all time. It’s a hoot and a half! 

3. He came to you in a vision. 

December 8th, 2007. You woke up in a cold sweat, eyes sinking back into your head as you floated four feet into the air. You saw the formerly animated remains of your mortal vestige left forsaken as your spirit entered a new plane of existence. One in which the extension of your consciousness collided with the rhythm of all that is known. Here you saw him, Daniel Radcliffe, who informed you of the exact time and location of your death. You awoke, disappointed to find yourself faced with the same mortal follies from whence you thought you had successfully absconded. 

4. He’s inside your walls. 

Ever hear scuttering in your vents? A strange shuffling in your gutter? Fear not, it isn’t any type of rodent infestation, it’s just your friendly neighborhood Daniel Radcliffe looking for a place to crash for the night! 

5. He’s also appeared in some movies!

Much like his partner and co-stars, Radcliffe is also an accomplished film actor. He’s appeared in a variety of films such as: Now You See Me 2, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Swiss Army Man, among others!
