Daniel Radcliffe is to become the richest teenager in Britain in July – when he gains access to his £20 million fortune.
The ‘Harry Potter’ star will get his hands on the massive sum – amassed from his film roles and merchandising – when he turns 18 on July 23.
Daniel hopes his new wealthy status won’t attract gold-diggers.
He said: “I’ve not got a girlfriend at the moment. Somebody said, ‘Do you worry girls are just giving you attention because of who you are?’ I was like, ‘I’m 17, it’s wonderful.’ “
Daniel – who later this month will take to the stage in London’s West End in a revival of Peter Shaffer’s play ‘Equus’ – was paid £60,000 for his first outing as the boy wizard in ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’.
Daniel’s West End debut is expected to cause controversy, as he appears nude on stage and his character has a sexual fascination with horses.
