Before he was the boy who lived, Daniel Radcliffe had to do a bunch of screen tests along with hundreds of other potential candidates.

The original auditions for Harry Potter have emerged and they are pretty great, a much younger goes through his lines and you can see why they picked the now super-famous Radcliffe.

The 26 year old was alerted to the footage over the weekend by a friend and responded saying “And I was like, ‘Oh shit! OK …’”.

We can imagine it would be weird a blast from the past, now we are just waiting for Ron and hermione’s tapes to be released.

Who would have thought this kid would grow up to slay Voldemort.
