From the Sunday Mail: Two faces that shaped 2001: J.K. Rowling and Daniel Radcliffe.
J.K. Rowling — From struggling single mum to one of the world’s most famous – and richest – authors, it’s been quite a year for Edinburgh-based Joanne Kathleen Rowling. The movie version of her first book, Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone, smashed box-office records all over the world. To add to her happiness, the 35-year-old announced her engagement [and marriage! -ed.] to handsome Scottish anaesthetist Neil Murray.
Daniel Radcliffe — The unknown youngster, 12, was catapulted towards fame and fortune after being chosen to play Harry Potter in the long-awaited movie about the boy wizard’s first adventure. The second film, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, is due for release in November.
