2. Income & Salary
Radcliffe won the famed Harry Potter role at age 11, reportedly receiving a seven figure salary for the first installment, and played the character in all eight films in the series. His salary naturally rose with each subsequent film, culminating in a reported $33,000,000 for the final title in the series. Though the Harry Potter character brought him the bulk of his earnings, he has drawn critical praise for his daring in some roles that distinctly break from the Harry Potter image. For example, Radcliffe’s notorious nude scene in the stage play ‰ÛÏEquus‰Û was made more controversial because of his Harry Potter image and the fact that he was only 17 years old at the time the play ran.

3. Estimated Net Worth
His current estimated net worth is $84,000,000, up from a reported $73,000,000 in 2012. Earnings of smaller amounts for roles outside of the Harry Potter franchise are due to the nature of the films and their significantly smaller budgets. For instance, his 2013 performance as Allen Ginsberg in the independent film ‰ÛÏKill Your Darlings‰Û has recently garnered critical praise, though it is not likely to add relatively much to the actor’s coffers. With currently securing approximately $25,000,000 in total annual salary, however, it seems Radcliffe is comfortable with his prevailing financial arrangements and selectively chosen independent acting projects.
