She has earned more at the tender age of 20 than most of us can imagine making in a lifetime.
But despite having more than £20million to her name, Emma Watson has only made it to third place in a list charting the wealthiest British stars aged 30 and under – with her Harry Potter co-star Daniel Radcliffe beating her to the top spot.
Miss Watson’s fortune has come primarily from her role as Hermione Granger in the seven films, topped up by a contract as the face of Burberry and modelling work for Chanel.
Wealthy: Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson are collectively worth more than £65million
But Radcliffe, 21, is estimated to have made more than £45.6million from playing the boy wizard, as well as starring in West End and Broadway productions such as Equus.
Keira Knightley wins second place in the chart, with a £30.1million fortune from roles in films such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Atonement, as well as a modelling contract with Chanel.
But the Potter spell is cast again over fourth place – taken by actor Rupert Grint, who has made £19million from playing Harry’s sidekick Ron Weasley.
The success of teenage vampire films the Twilight Saga has seen 24-year-old Robert Pattinson become a multi-millionaire, earning £18.5million in just a few years.
Coleen Rooney, 24, also scrapes into the top ten, with £9million from deals with Littlewoods, Argos and Nike as well as her ITV2 series.
But Cheryl Cole, 27, only makes it to 14th place, with a relatively modest £7.9million income.
The list was compiled by industry experts for Heat magazine.
