Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, who turns 18 later this month, has become the youngest person to be immortalised in wax at Madame Tussauds museum.

Radcliffe's statue shows that the museum has tried to distance him from the character of Potter. He is sporting a simple suit rather than the clothes and the wand of a magician.

His wax figure will stand alongside Hollywood legends Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts, contactmusic.com website reported.

Ben Lovett of Madame Tussauds said: "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."
