Harry Potter is definitely one of the largest franchises in the world. The books were extremely successful and the films carried that success even further. When the world of Harry Potter was brought to the big screen, many of the actors brought in to play Hogwarts students were relatively unknown. But, playing such iconic roles brought them fame and stardom. While some of the actors from the series have gone on to continue to be in the public eye, others have not.
We’ve put together a list of the net worth of the main cast of Harry Potter including both the students and the professors.
Maggie Smith is a British actress who was known before the series for her work on stage. She had a long career working at the Royal National Theater and has also been many on-screen roles for decades.
She has won many awards including two Academy Awards. Other than her fame in the Harry Potter franchise, she is also well known for starring on the television series Downton Abbey. But, for Potter fans, she will always be best known as Professor McGonagall.
After Harry Potter, Felton was in many other movies including Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Apparition. Plus, his work as Draco Malfoy won him the MTV Movie Award for Best Villain two years in a row.
When it comes to the success of Harry Potter, the kids who were cast as the Hogwarts students might have been the core of the show. However, the adults in the series were also essential. Michael Gambon took over the role of Dumbledore starting with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban after Richard Harris passed away.
Gammon is another respected and prolific stage actor from England. His role as Dumbledore is his most notable on-screen role, but he has also been in other movies and television series including Fantastic Mr. Fox and The King’ Speech.
Luna Lovegood was a character who needed a unique actress to bring her essence to film. Evanna Lynch was able to capture Luna’s otherworldliness and kindness very well. Lynch is definitely mostly known for this role, and it’s a quite fitting one for her as she was a big fan of the series as a child.
She hasn’t been in any big productions since Harry Potter but has instead modeled for many brands and even narrated an audiobook. She has definitely not been as active in the entertainment industry compared to many of her Potter costars.
He has also appeared in television series including The West Wing. While Isaacs might not be a superstar, he has a strong and respectable career and is a recognizable face to many.
Warwick Davis was more of a supporting actor in the Harry Potter series. He played Professor Flitwick who didn’t appear in too many scenes. However, his work as Flitwick was a great portrayal.
Davis got his start when he played an Ewok in Return of the Jedi. He is also well-known for starring in the film Willow. He has also been in many other blockbuster films including Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
Bonnie Wright is another actress who really got her start in Harry Potter. This makes sense as she was rather young when she was cast in the role of Ginny Weasley. She has also been in other movies including the Hallmark film Stranded and the BBC TV film, A Life in Pictures.
Other than acting, she also wrote and directed a short film called Separate We Come, Separate We Go while she was in film school. Wright has also done some modeling.
The three actors who played the core trio from the Harry Potter series are definitely in a good position as far as net worth is concerned.
While Rupert Grint might have the lowest net worth of the three, he still made a pretty penny. His fame started when he was cast as Ron Weasley. Other than Harry Potter he has starred in some television series including Snatch and The ABC Murders. He has also had roles in many smaller films.
Emma Watson might have gotten her start playing Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, but she was acting since she was six years old when her parents sent her to Stagecoach Theater Arts school.
Other than acting, she has also done a lot of work as a model and with endorsements and ads. After Harry Potter, she has continued to act in many big movies including The Perks of Being a Wallflower, This Is the End, and Beauty and The Beast. Her activism work also keeps her plenty busy.
Seeing as Radcliffe played the title role of Harry Potter, it’s no wonder he has fame and fortune. He started acting before Harry Potter, but it was that role that secured his celebrity. After Potter, he did some on-stage acting in the play Equus.
He has also appeared in other films including The Woman in Black, Kill Your Darlings, and The F Word.
