20His Mother Worked In The Entertainment Industry
Many child actors have parents who know absolutely nothing about the entertainment industry. They may be adults, but they don't have any expertise when it comes to negotiating contracts and knowing the ins and outs of movie sets. Radcliffe had a bit of a different experience because his mother
actually was in the movie industry—she was a casting agent and worked on several BBC films.
Obviously, his mother didn't push him into the industry—that was a decision that Radcliffe made himself. However, it must have been really helpful during the nervewracking audition process to have someone by his side who knew all about it.
