Famous and rich: Potterian Hermione, Harry and Ron after 20 years

Our young wizards have already grown into successful celebrities

On January 1, 2022, a special New Year’s edition of Harry Potter premiered on HBO, on the occasion of the impressive anniversary since the release of the first part about the young wizards.

The official account of Harry Potter has published a teaser of the special release of the movie. All characters of the story are present. The fans of Harry, Ron and Hermione couldn’t hide their joy, as they had been waiting for this event for many years.

Feel old yet? The first film about the young wizards was released in 2001!

The show, directed by Chris Columbus, tells the fascinating story of the creation of the most beloved franchise of all time. It is rumored, J.K. Rowling was not invited to the anniversary celebration because of her latest book Troubled Blood about a homicidal maniac. Also, many did not like the intolerant statements of the writer on gender.

How have the main actors changed in two decades? What has happened in their lives and what have they achieved? In short, let’s see how Ron, Harry and Hermione have grown up.

Daniel Radcliffe

Harry Potter

At the time of filming the first movie about the little wizard Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the actor was only 11 years old, now he is already 32.

Before filming in Chris Columbus’s film, Radcliffe had little experience in film industry and TV. And in 2001, the boy became a celebrity. He received a million dollars for the first film about Harry. For the second film – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets – $3 million, for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – $11 million, and $20 million for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. The actor’s wealth is growing together with his fame and demand.

He has already filmed in 40 projects, many of which have received high ratings: A Young Doctor’s Notebook, Kill Your Darlings, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, Now You See Me and others.

For the role of Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe received many nominations from prestigious film awards. However, he received an award only once: 2012 MTV Movie and TV Award for Best Hero.

Radcliffe suffers from dyspraxia – a rare disease, because of which he is unable to do simple but useful tasks, such as tying shoelaces.

A little is known about the actor’s personal life. He had a relationship with an assistant director, and he also dated American actress Erin Darke.

Emma Watson

Hermione Granger 

Emma started filming in Harry Potter at 10, now she’s 31. For the first film, the actress received $125 thousand.

She has 28 films to her credit (Harry Potter included). In recent times, one of the most successful of them is Little Women. The actress’s fees reach millions. For Beauty and the Beast and for the most recent series, she received $15 million each. The actress admits that she is in no hurry to live in a big way, because she does not know how to manage her finances at all. Her attention is now focused on social activities, education and director’s career.

Emma was rumored to have an affair with Prince Harry, but she categorically denied the rumors. In Autumn, 2017, after two years of dating, Watson broke up with IT specialist William Knight. For the last three years, she has been dating American businessman Leo Robinton.

Rupert Grint

Ron Weasley

Rupert Grint is the oldest of the magical trinity. He started playing in Harry Potter at 12, and now he’s 33. His first payment was as much as that of Emma’s – $125 thousand.

For the film Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, he received $4 million, for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and 2 – $15 million each.

Rupert is an in-demand actor. He plays both in full length films and TV series. In total, he has acted in 32 projects.

At the end of 2020, Rupert became a father. Actress Georgia Groome, whom he has been dating for already 10 years, gave birth to a daughter. The appearance of the child inspired Rupert so much that he even announced his readiness to leave the cinema for the sake of raising the baby. And in fact, he hasn’t been filming in the last couple of years. His fans, however, are sure he will return to the big screen.
