Daniel Radcliffe Raised His Net Worth

Daniel Radcliffe Harry Potter Earnings

After appearing in a BBC broadcast of David Copperfield in 1999, Radcliffe was asked to audition as the boy who lived in the film adaptation of the Harry Potter books.

It took eight long months, but Radcliffe was deemed the best actor to bring the character to life on screen.

The first film, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was released in 2001. Radcliffe reportedly received $1 million as the lead actor for his first film salary.

From the sequel, Radcliffe was given a check of $3 million, and he was launched to international stardom at a young age.

It seemed as though there was no stopping the young star from making millions with each film, as his salary rose through the years.

For Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, he earned $6 million, which was raised t $11 million for The Goblet of Fire, $14 million for Order of the Phoenix, and $24 million for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

The final book of the series was split into two films, and for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts, 1 and 2, Radcliffe was paid a combined $100 million.

How Much Did Radcliffe Make From Theatre?

After the end of the Harry Potter film series, Radcliffe decided to focus on working in theatre, hoping to be seen as more than just the boy wizard.

When he was 17, Radcliffe participated in Equus, starring in the lead role of Alan Strang.

This was the first time the play had been revived since its initial run in 1973. Radcliffe’s character was of the stable boy who was obsessed with horses.

Advance sales for the show hit 1.7 million GBP, and the role became a defining moment in Radcliffe’s post-Potter career.

Interest in his casting was generated after rave reviews repeatedly singled him out, praising his ability to act against type.

In 2012 he took on the lead role in the Broadway revival of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying and earned a Tony Award nomination for his work on stage.

While his exact earnings are not known, it can be presumed that Radcliffe makes a hefty amount from his high-profile stage career.

His appearance in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead was recorded by National Theatre, broadcast on British TV, and released on demand.

Radcliffe’s Net Worth Soars

Mirror recently reported that Radcliffe had from the sequel had a rather profitable 2021. 

The 33-year-old earned nearly $90 million over the past year after focusing on spending his childhood earnings on investing in art, rare books, stocks, and an undisclosed number of properties.

Gilmore Jacobs Ltd. recently filed accounts that Radcliffe had around $4.2 million in property across the United Kingdom and another $14 million in cash reserves.

Radcliffe also owns half of Gilmore Jacobs Ltd, signifying that the actor has made some wise decisions with his earnings over the years.

The actor has previously stated that he hardly touches his Harry Potter money for personal use, considering himself lucky not to be burdened by financial stress.

Instead, he revels in the fact that he can choose projects for their artistic merit rather than to raise his net worth.

He hopes to produce and his own films, as well as invest in more artistic projects around the United Kingdom and Hollywood. 

Radcliffe makes regular donations to charities that invest in LGBTQ+ youth and has been vocal about advocating for healthcare workers amidst the Covid pandemic.

After Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling came under fire for her comments against the transgender community, Radcliffe and his former co-stars expressed their support for the community, promising to work harder to advocate for the underrepresented minority in television and film.

About Daniel Radcliff’s Personal Life

Notoriously quiet about his private life, not much is known about the actor behind the scenes.

The actor has been romantically involved with fellow performer Erin Drake since the two first connected on the set of Kill Your Darlings in 2013.

The two have been candid about their love for one another, with Drake telling People Magazine that their passion for their careers was one of the first things they bonded over.

She added:

“There’s something that’s really beautiful and really lovely about being with someone who just innately understands that about you.”

Radcliffe referred to Drake as his best friend, saying:

“I think that’s the kind of relationship I always aspire to have with someone I’m in a relationship with. You want that person to be your best friend,” he said. “In the case of Erin, we definitely are.”

Drake was recently seen in the Amazon Prime hit television series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

In an interview with Playboy, the actor opened up about how Drake immediately caught his attention.

“There’s no acting going on—not from my end, anyway,” he said of their scenes together. 

“There’s a moment when she makes me laugh, and I’m laughing as me and not as my character. She was incredibly funny and smart. I knew I was in trouble.”

It is known that the pair live together, seeing as Drake was in the background of a series of zoom interviews Radcliffe had been doing to promote his latest projects.
