Yesterday, Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe ~finally~ received his much-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

And obviously, being the gracious and charming person that he is, he gave the loveliest speech ever:

If you get to work in this job, you are, by sheer virtue of statistics, one of the luckiest people on Earth, and so none of us who are lucky enough to do this should ever forget that. And I promise you that I won't. I will never stop feeling lucky to be here and to be a part of this.

He also got kind of emotional when he thanked his parents for their support.

I talk about luck a lot. I was very lucky to get the part of Harry, I was lucky I enjoyed working long hours right from the word "go", and I've been lucky enough to be able to continue my career and work with the people I love in the years since Potter finished. But the seeds of all my luck were sown at the very beginning, 26 years ago, when I got you as parents. So thank you, and I love you.

Thanks for all the feelings, Dan. 😭😭😭
