Daniel Radcliffe has earned over 12,000 Galleons, or £6m, portraying Harry Potter in the Warner Bros.-produced films. This lofty sum has earned him the spot of second-richest teenager in Britain, behind Prince Harry at £14m. A film insider predicts that he will overtake the number one spot before the last of the proposed seven Harry Potter films are finished:
"The project would lose too much credibility if they changed any of the lead actors now so Daniel can name his price."
Daniel was originally paid £75,000 for the first film, but has gradually increased his fee and share of merchandising rights.
