Inside Harry Potter stars’ incredible fortunes – including film salaries

The Harry Potter franchise is still a huge global success story 24 years after the release of the first book in 1997.

The books spawned films that became some of the highest grossing of all time at the box office, starring now global superstars Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.

A reunion 20 years after the first film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, is set for release at the beginning of the New Year on NOW TV and will feature the three stars as well as a host of other actors.

With such monumental success, it is no wonder that the three earned so much money from the films and they now all sit on huge fortunes the size of Hogwarts castle.

So how much are the leading Harry Potter stars' net worth? Here we take a closer look.

What are the net worths of the leading Harry Potter actors?

Luckily for the three leads, muggles are paid in pound sterling, while the knuts, sickles and galleons are left to the wizards.

Here is a rundown of how much each of the faces behind Harry, Ron and Hermione are now worth.

Daniel Radcliffe

Celebrity Net Worth estimates Daniel Radcliffe's net worth to be around a colossal £83 million.

Since his Harry Potter career, the part he landed in 2000, Daniel has continued acting and has featured in The Woman in Black, The F Word, Victor Frankenstein and Escape From Pretoria.

Daniel is reported to split his time between a home in Fulham, London and in the famous West Village of Lower Manhattan, New York City.

He'll need more than a few goblins to keep that fortune secure.

Emma Watson

Emma Watson, who played the brainy witch Hermione Granger, once ranked as the sixth highest paid actress in the world.

Her acting career has arguably been the most successful of the three, with roles in My Week with Marilyn, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring and Little Women.

She is believed to have earned around £11 million for her part in Beauty and the Beast alone.

Emma also models and was chosen as the face of French perfume and cosmetics brand Lancome in 2011, having previously modelled for Burberry.

Her total fortune is estimated to be just shy of £65 million.

Rupert Grint

With a net worth of £37 million, Grint has earned the lowest amount in his career of the three stars, but is the first to become a parent. His partner Georgia Groome gave birth to a daughter in 2020.

Since Harry Potter, Grint has arguably become known more as a TV actor, starring in the comedy drama series Snatch and as part of the main cast in the critically acclaimed TV series Servant.

Much of Grint's fortune has been invested in property, such as his 18th-century Hertfordshire mansion.

Celebrity Net Worth claims: "He lives in an 18th-century mansion, set on 22 acres, that he bought for $7million [5.2 million]. The residence has six bedroom suites and both an indoor and outdoor pool.

"Grint also purchased a $4.4 million home nearby for his parents, Nigel and Joanne, that features a putting green and a lake. Additionally, Grint and his father are the co-owners for a $550,000 [£415,000] house, which they renovated and now rent out."

What did the leading Harry Potter actors earn for the films?

Three of the Harry Potter films are featured in the list of the top 50 highest grossing films of all time. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 earned over £1 billion at the box office. Now in 13th place, it was at one point the third highest grossing film ever made.

It meant that each star could be paid by the millions and Daniel Radcliffe, unsurprisingly, earned by far the most for his role in the series.

He is reported to have earned around £750,000 for his role in the first film, but the series' popularity by its finale meant hat he earned a reported £37 million for the final two films alone.
