Do you think Daniel Radcliffe is a good actor?

I know he doesn’t have to work anymore, such a lucky guy. He was very wooden in HP and I saw a film of his recently and he hasn’t improved
No, I don't think that he has been a good actor since he was a teenager.
His acting was much better in the earlier Harry Potter movies.
Did he ever act in another films but Harry Potter? if I ask this question, he does not seem to be good.

Yes, he has made other the films.
The Woman in Black, Kill Your Darlings, Victor Frankenstein and The Imperium.
Lousy acting for all of them.

Do you think that Radcliffe would not be a famous actor, if he did not portray Harry Potter? I at least think so.

I doubt that he would have been a successful adult actor without Harry Potter.
His mother was a casting agent and he had done some tv acting work before Harry Potter.
But I believe that the acting projects would still have fizzled out by his mid teens without the role of Harry Potter.
Not seen him in anything, so I can't really comment

He was pretty good in Escape from Pretoria, also based on a true story

I think that you are right. Harry Potter popularise him, and he - is - for the most people - just famous because of this role.
