Imagine being a child, having the opportunity to audition for the part of one of the three major leads in the Harry Potter films, getting a callback, finally landing the casting, and having the opportunity to pretend you are a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

This would be any child's dream, but in the mindset of an adult, one would realize that getting locked into a popular series for over a decade would equate some serious cash flow.

I don't think it's a concept any child is really aware of. But I'm sure as Radcliffe, Watson, and Grint grew into adults, they truly realized what they really got themselves into.

Wondering how much these stars made in the first film compared to the last?

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter)

Money earned for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: rumored $145,000 up to $1,000,000

Money earned for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I & II: $20,000,000 + $30,000,000

Total money made from the series: over $100,000,000

Money earned for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I & II: $15,000,000 + $15,000,000

Rupert Grint (Ronald Weasley)

Money earned for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: $125,000

Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy)

Although not definite, it is rumored Felton made $1.25 million per film, meaning he would have made around $10 million total from the entire franchise.

Besides a property, or a few, and a nice car, a majority of the Harry Potter stars have been considerably low-profile and responsible with their spending, minus Felton's experience nearly plunging into debt.

All of them claim they treasure the experiences they gained growing up on set, and barely pay any attention to the treasure of wealth they acquired over the years. How sentimental!
