Daniel Radcliffe Net Worth is $85 million
The British teen icon of Harry Potter who is just 24 years old is worth $85 million. His net worth is certainly more than what most people can ever imagine to earn. Daniel was born in West London to a literary agent and a casting agent.
He was enthusiastic about acting ever since he was five years old and he did not have to wait long because he got his first opportunity when he was just 10 years of age, in the television adaptation of David Copperfield as the lead actor.
Not everyone gets that chance, but he was able to capitalise on it and then went to touch new heights with every passing day. He became so successful that he had to drop out of school once the first movie in the Harry Potter series was released. The J.K. Rowling Novel’s movie adaptation had turned him into a superstar overnight when it released in 2001.
The movie became the highest grosser of the year, amounting to almost 800 million dollars. All the movies did very well on the box office and kept shattering one record after another, the last of which Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-Part 2 is number four on the highest grossing films of all-time list with collections to the tune of $1.3 billion.
His movie debut however, was with the 2001 film The Tailor of Panama. Among his other notable movies are December Boys, My Boy Jack during the Harry Potter days. After the end of that series, his first major appearance was in the 2012 horror movie The Woman in Black. Apart from acting he works actively for the rights of gay men and other LGBT groups across the globe.
He has also proved himself to be a good Drama actor through Equus. It’s hard to follow up the success that he has had as a child but if he does what he is capable of, he’ll maintain his popularity.
