Heyman and Kloves were the people who discovered the face for Harry Potter’s role in the actor Daniel Radcliff in the year 2000. By this time, Radcliff had established himself in acting in a BBC TV production in the year 1999. With the popularity of this film and the success that Radcliff has earned playing the role of Harry, Heyman has promised to release the screen test of Radcliff during the selection for the role as an added bonus on the purchase of the subsequent DVDs of the Harry Potter series. Rowling saw the screen test and found that there could not have been a better choice of an actor for the said role.

In the year 2000, the actors to play the other key roles of Ron and Hermione were also decided.
