How Much Money Daniel Radcliffe Made From Harry Potter

Whether or not you're a full-blown fanatic of the fantasy films inspired by the seven "Harry Potter" novels written by British author J.K. Rowling, you probably know the movie's star wizard-in-training is played by Daniel Radcliffe, who landed the role when he was 11 years old.

The franchise has so far spawned a stage play and ten movies, including the original eight "Harry Potter" films, which earned almost $8 billion worldwide. There may even be a new small screen entry in the series coming to expand on that already-impressive figure. As the eponymous character from the original series, Radcliffe definitely earned a big paycheck playing wizard. In fact, his salary increased significantly over the course of the film series' run, after it became apparent that the films would remain a sure thing at the box office.

Given all the success he had at a young age, you might be curious about just how much cash the lead actor in the hugely successful "Harry Potter" franchise earned. If so, you're in luck, because we've got all the details about how much money Daniel Radcliffe made from "Harry Potter."

Daniel Radcliffe made nearly $100 million from the Harry Potter movies

In 2016, CBS reported that Daniel Radcliffe made $95.6 million from the eight "Harry Potter" movies.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, the British actor earned $1 million for the first film, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," $3 million for the second, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," and $6 million for the third, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban." After the huge success of these first three films made it apparent that a bona fide franchise had been born, Radcliffe saw a boost to his salary.

For the next two films, "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" and "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," Radcliffe earned $14 million apiece. He then earned $24 million for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." The studio opted to split the last book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," into two movies, for which the actor took home about $50 million in total.

Even though Daniel Radcliffe made a fortune from Harry Potter, he hasn't spent much of it

Despite those eye-popping figures, Daniel Radcliffe hasn't gone on a major spending spree with his cash. He says he's hardly touched it, as he feels lucky that he'll never have to worry about money in the future, according to The Telegraph.

We should also mention that while Radcliffe made a fortune for his time starring in "Harry Potter," his earnings from those films is only part of the actor's entire net worth. He's appeared in several film and theater projects, and Showbiz CheatSheet estimates he's really worth closer to $110 million, while the Sunday Times puts it closer to $112 million, making him one of the richest actors in Britain.

Whatever's currently in the actor's bank account, there's no doubt the more than $95 million he earned from "Harry Potter" makes up the bulk of his fortune.
