Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe became the youngest ever star to be immortalised in wax at Madame Tussauds on Monday (01Jul07). The 17-year-old, who celebrates his landmark 18th birthday later this month (23Jul07), joins a host of celebrities at the famous London landmark - and Ben Lovett, a spokesman for the museum, insists that regardless of age, the young star deserves to be waxed up. Lovett claims Radcliffe's recent naked turn onstage in controversial London play Equus gave the actor a celebrity edge he never had before. He says, "With his 18th birthday around the corner and stage roles like Equus under his belt, Daniel has become a young British acting force to be reckoned with. "It's been great for the studio's sculptors to recreate someone who we've all watched growing up on the big screen."
