Daniel Radcliffe Has More Than $100M to His Name

It’s safe to say that, despite playing one in “Trainwreck,” Daniel Radcliffe will never have to be a dog walker to make ends meet.

The Daily Mirror estimated that the assets of the 26 year-old Jewish actor, who starred as Harry Potter in the eight-movie franchise, are worth over £69 million. Which is over $102 million. Which is not even an amount one can compute.

According to the Daily Mirror, Gilmore Jacobs, the Essex-based company Radcliffe’s parents set up in 2000 to manage his assets was worth $85.5 million in 2014. Yet the company was owed £15.1 million at the end of last year, bringing its total worth up to £100.6 million for the year ending March 31 in 2014.

But unlike most of us, who would be spending the rest of our days eating popcorn in our PJs if we had that unfathomable sum to our name, Daniel Radcliffe is hardly resting on his laurels. Since starring the Harry Potter, he’s starred as Jewish beat poet Allen Ginsburg in “Kill Your Darlings”, gone naked on West End for Equus, danced and sang on Broadway J. Pierrepont Finch in the revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” He spent the last financial year starring on West End and Broadway productions of The Cripple of Inishmaaan.

This year, Radcliffe got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He’s slated to star in “Now You See Me 2” across Mark Ruffalo and Lizzy Caplan, another beloved member of the tribe.

We hope he’s not too busy to spend an afternoon with his bubbe once in a while. Maybe take her to a fine Kosher restaurant? After all, he can afford it.
