Harry Potter stars rise up Sunday Times Rich List

10th May 2011

The stars of the Harry Potter films have risen further up the latest Sunday Times Rich List, though they have some way to go to match creator J. K. Rowling, who is now worth an estimated GBP 530 million.

Daniel Radcliffe, who plays the title character in the hugely successful films, is now placed fifth in the list of people under the age of 30, with a GBP 48 million fortune.

Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, who portray Harry's best friends Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley in the films, are each estimated to be worth GBP 24 million.

Meanwhile, Robert Pattinson, who rose to stardom as Cedric Diggory in the 2005 adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire before going on to appear in the Twilight films, has increased his fortune by GBP 19 million in the last 12 months alone, with it standing at GBP 32 million.

The first film adaptation of Rowling's novels, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, was released in 2001 and, since then, the series has gone on to generate GBP 3.8 billion in box office revenue.
