How Daniel Radcliffe Achieved a Net Worth of $110 Million

Anyone who has seen any of the eight movies of the Harry Potter franchise is familiar with the face of Daniel Radcliffe. If you can believe it, he is now 26 years old and has outgrown his Harry Potter childhood. He has grown into a steadily increasing personal net worth that gives him considerable freedom in choosing his next career ambition.

One of the best things about being a child actor and getting a gig is that you can grow up but not out of your role. If you compare the James Bond franchise where younger men grow older and need to be replaced, Daniel Radcliffe could consistently increase his net worth every year simply by becoming a better actor – and acting older. Yet another advantage is that many of your younger fans will grow older with you, allowing for the development of a massive and youthful fan base. This is exactly what has happened to Radcliffe.

Though there are some reports that put his net worth at $100 million, others have it $20 million lower (as of 2019). We are opting for the higher number for a number of reasons, so read on to see if you agree with us.

First, the entire film series grossed about $7.7 billion. Maybe he started out with a relatively low salary, but as he became more popular as the star of the series he became more of a fixture, giving his agent the leverage to get significantly more money in the eighth installment than the first – Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. You have to think that when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows came around, his agent wasn’t about to forget the $978 million the first film grossed.

We have heard of childhood stars who make millions, then find out before they reach the age of 25 that their money was either squandered by their parents or by themselves. To preserve Radcliffe’s net worth, his parents created Gilmore Jacobs Ltd in 2001. The sole purpose of this company was to help Radcliffe manage his finances. There was $40 million in 2007 when he turned 18. The estimated holdings of that company currently sits at about $89 million, so unless Radcliffe is living in a wooden shack somewhere, that low ball figure simply cannot be true.

A year later, in 2008, he got involved in real estate, specifically, buying apartments in New York City. His first cost him $4.8 million. One year later he would add two more to the brood, for a total estimated value of $17 million. Combine that with the $89 million in his company and you get a more realistic figure of $104 million. He also owns a flat in London.

But it’s not as if Radcliffe has been sitting on his hands after the Harry Potter series. He actually was busy acting in the theatre even during his Harry Potter work. It is unfair to compare his income from these other efforts to Harry Potter take home pay, but this list does illustrate how the $110 million net worth value may be even higher.

  • The Tailor of Panama
  • The Play What I Wrote
  • Equus
  • How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (for which he won a Tony award)
  • December Boys
  • The Woman in Black
  • Horns
  • Trainwreck
  • Imperium
  • Now You See Me 2

With such a busy schedule, he has largely been unfettered from romantic relationships, avoiding any potential financial complications with a significant other. Some have said that he is thus far unlucky at love, but he is only 26 and has had an incredible amount of career success.

Finally, one would expect for a young movie star to have one of the nicest cars around, yet Radcliffe opted for a Fiat Grande Punto hatchback on his 18th birthday. In British terms it may be considered to be a teenage commoner’s car. No net worth boost here. It can also be said that maybe one of the reasons he doesn’t have a girlfriend is because of his lack of wheels. Or it could be that he doesn’t want to date someone who is only interested in his money.

Daniel Radcliffe certainly is an interesting young man, and time will tell if he can be consistent with his handling of his impressive wealth at an early age. Having a net worth of $110 million leaves him without the need to work. He can if he wants to, and right now he definitely wants to, only adding to his net worth.
