THE HARRY POT­TER STARS

WHAT HAP­PENED NEXT?

Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Gh Spotlight -

DANIEL RAD­CLIFFE

Of the 400,000 chil­dren who re­sponded to the cast­ing call to play Harry, it was Lon­don school­boy Daniel Rad­cliffe who was cho­sen. He broke away from the fran­chise by star­ring in the play Equus at 17, in­volv­ing a nude scene, and since has fo­cused on in­die films and plays.

Of his post-pot­ter fame, he said he felt like he ‘had a lot to prove’. Today his for­tune stands at £75m, mak­ing him sig­nif­i­cantly richer than his two co-stars.

EMMA WATSON

In a move you might ex­pect from Hermione Granger, Emma Watson not only learnt her own lines, but the lines of all her co-stars. While film­ing the fi­nal two Harry Pot­ter films, she also stud­ied for an English Lit­er­a­ture de­gree at Brown Univer­sity in New York.

Now 26, she is an out­spo­ken UN Women Good­will Am­bas­sador. Most re­cently, she played Belle in the film adap­ta­tion of the Dis­ney clas­sic Beauty And The Beast.

RU­PERT GRINT

With his first pay cheque, Ru­pert Grint, who played Harry’s best friend Ron Weasley, bought a Mr Whippy van. He ad­mit­ted to feel­ing lost when work on the fran­chise ended. Though he has had some notable roles, including West End per­for­mances, his ca­reer has ta­pered off some­what com­pared with the ca­reers of his co-stars. He has made same savvy fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions, though, and has a multi-mil­lion pound hous­ing em­pire.

Then and now: Daniel, Emma and Ru­pert grew up with their Harry Pot­ter char­ac­ters
