Daniel Radcliffe sings the Periodic Table to promote Harry Potter


From the department of ‘you may have missed this the other night’….

After starring in six Harry Potter films where he has been engaged in a never-ending battle with ‘he who must not be named‘, Daniel Radcliffe can finally feel comfortable enough to be at his geeky, wizardry best on national television. His appearance on last weeks Graham Norton Show to promote the much-anticipated premiere this week of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 1, solidified his place in the scientific nerd hall of fame by singing The Elements Song by Tom Lehrer, the cleverest and funniest man in the 20th century according to the actor. Radcliffe “sang” (more like recited) the song, which lists the entire Periodic Table to the amazement of Colin Farrell, Rihanna and Graham Norton. Considered his “party piece”, Hermione would be proud. You just thought he wasn’t paying attention in Potions class.

If you missed it, here it is…

I totally can’t wait for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to come out. You?

  • Nice one Daniel
