Daniel Radcliffe, 21 next July, and Robert Pattinson, 24 next May, are two of the richest British denizens under 30, according to the Sunday Times.

Thanks to the Harry Potter franchise, Daniel Radcliffe earned £25.6 million last year – more than 100 times what he got for his appearance in the first HP movie, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001). Radcliffe's fortune is now estimated to be £42m.

As per the Times report, Radcliffe has donated money to help children's hospices and last year made a "major donation" to the US-based Trevor Project, which runs a helpline for troubled lesbian, gay and bisexual youth.

The report adds that fellow Harry Potter alumni Emma Watson, who just turned 20, is now worth £22 million, while Rupert Grint, 22 next August, is worth £20m.

Robert Pattinson, Twilight's vampire Edward Cullen, is on the list as the 14th richest person under 30. Pattinson's assets are supposed to total £13m. The report adds that "only a few years ago" Pattinson considered giving up acting and was none too successful at pursuing a music career.

Best quote from the 14th richest person under 30: “Last year, if I went out, I'd have to fight to chat someone up. This year, I look exactly the same, which is really scruffy, and yet lots of people seem to have just changed their minds and decided I'm really sexy.”

Topping the Times list is Arthur Landon, 28, who inherited £200m.
