The Daily Telegraph has a report on the 2010 Sunday Times Rich List online today, which includes actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) on its ranking of the top 20 young millionaires. Joining such other young actors, actresses, business moguls, and royals as Keira Knightley, Charlotte Church, and Princes William and Harry, the paper reports the following on the Harry Potter trio:

“Daniel Radcliffe, 20, who plays Harry Potter in the films, was ranked fifth with a fortune of £42 million. His earnings last year alone were £25.6 million according to Vanity Fair magazine. Emma Watson, who plays Hermione Granger, was placed joint 10th with £22 million and Rupert Grint, who plays Ronald Weasley, was 12th with £20 million. The last two films are due to be released later this year and in 2011.”

A second article in the Telegraph notes that Harry Potter J. K. Rowling was also included on the Sunday Times’ rankings, listing at number five in the Film and TV Millionaires list. The paper notes, “Harry Potter creator Joanne Rowling ’ the richest author on the list, with an estimated wealth of £519m ’ has increased her fortune from the books with a hugely profitable film series. Ms Rowling, who wrote the first of seven Harry Potter books when a struggling single mother in Edinburgh, enjoys a percentage of all royalties and merchandising. But unlike many top authors, she has refused to become a tax exile and still lives in Scotland.”

Everybody else love that line? yeah me too! Her words spread far and wide and i had to laugh a little when i read that! its a great line about Jo and her values! Congrats to them all they thouroughly deserve it, everyone of them, they are so talented, whether it be writting or acting!Avatar Imagehprocks2700 says: Wow, that's alot of moneyAvatar Imagecghambright says: Go DAN, RUPERT, and EMMA!!!! I love them!! I have a feeling they're worth even more than that. Those three are some rich b**ches! :DAvatar Imagecghambright says: OH and go JKR!!! Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Congratulations to all of them on being on this list, but even more so for the fact that despite the wealth they have accrued, they remain genuine, authentic, down-to-earth people who do not seem to place much emphasis on what they earn but instead do on what they can for the rest of the world. Well done, everyone listed, and keep up the good work.Avatar Imagelurking_llama says: I'm not at all surprised by how much money they all have, although I do think that actor's wages are disproportionate to the amount of work they do (as are sports stars) but such is life and the world we live in. Out of all of them I think that Jo is the only one who has truly deserved the fortune she has I'm glad that none of them appear to be greedy and selfish with their money.Avatar ImageLittle Light says: Not really surprised there! And, good for you, Jo!Avatar Imagehewy says: These four are some of the most deserving individuals on the planet. All seem to care about the world around them and share a portion of their wealth with others. Jo for one is extremely generous and speaks well of her value system. The kids still seem to have alot to learn but are in there doing their bit for charity and causes that affect those around them. They do not seem to the greedy types that one sees in the "young stars" (read brats) on this side of the pond. Congrats to all!!!!!!Avatar Imagenealiezealbie says: if you were surprised by this bit of news, you have been living under a rock. they have probably made this list since they were 11 (and jo, since arthur levine signed her) well, deserved though! :)Avatar ImageGrintFan says: cool,,!!!how would they spend it,,;) good for Rupert,,<3Avatar Imagemolly43 says: This is why I love them (Radcliffe, Watson, Grint, and Rowling) so much.

Avatar ImageSmitch says: And they seem to be so humble. Couldn't have happened to greater kids, I think! Avatar ImageLove is the greatest magic says: What's great is that although they have all that money they still want to work. That would set them up for a comfortable life so they don't need to work but they are anyway. Good on them!Avatar ImageThulasi Bala says: Wow thats a LOT of money wonder what they will do with all that wizard wealth but they deserve itAvatar ImageThulasi Bala says: Wow thats a LOT of money wonder what they will do with all that wizard wealth but they deserve itAvatar ImageThulasi Bala says: Wow thats a LOT of money wonder what they will do with all that wizard wealth but they deserve itAvatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: Good for them, especially JKR who so deserves it.
