Now that he is done with the Potter series, he is going on with his acting career and frequently appears on magazines. As mentioned above, he had acted in ‘The Tailor of Panama’ in 2001 and then began his journey through the Harry Potter movies that led him into becoming the richest person in England.
As for Dan’s wealth, he has enough to never work again! He owns a 3,000 square feet apartment which has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and it is worth $5.6 million. This actor started his career in 1999 and gained $1,000,000 USD for his first Harry Potter movie. He continued acting in the series and apparently started earning more than his parents. He earned $33,000,000 USD in his last Harry Potter movie and currently has a net worth of $80 million earning $25 million annually. Well, let us wish him luck for his future and hope he makes more.
From his young age itself, he had great love for acting. He likes hanging out with friends, jogging, playing instruments and video games. As for his spending patterns, he spends quite a lot. This, we tell you because Dan bought a $17,000 mattress after cashing his first cheque from the Potter series. Well, who else who would spend that much just for mattress? Coming to his charity work, Dan is generous and has supported many charities and foundations like, UNICEF, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Demelza House, Rebuilding Sri Lanka and such others among which the Demelza house is his favorite. He had once signed and donated his Hogwarts crew T-shirt to enable an economic growth in Rebuilding Sri Lanka.
Radcliffe is the only son to his parents and he had a taste for acting from a very young age. He used to give stage performances in school and naturally, his interest towards acting also increased. In the beginning, his parents did not encourage him towards acting as he was still a kid. But later, seeing her son’s great like for it, his mother sent a picture of him to BBC television in 1999 for the audition of David Copperfield in which Dan portrayed the role of young Copperfield. As for his education, he had it done in two different schools – the Sussex House School and the City of London School. Dan admits that he has never watched the movie, ‘The Tailor of Panama’, in which he acted. He tried to read the first Harry Potter book when he was 8, but he could never finish it. But he completed all the parts later while casting for the movies.

New York West 12th Street home
No one ever thought that the Harry Potter star will become a big player in the NY property market. The 20-something actor purchased his third property in 2009 which is almost worth £4 million.
Location - The house is located on West 12th street on Manhattan's West Village.
Accommodation - The house was built in 1847 and it is rather huge at 3,000 sq ft. With as many as five bedrooms the house seems suitable for the boy wizard. The house looks nice on the tree-lined cobblestone street. There is also a small one-bedroom apartment on the ground floor that also includes a wood-burning fireplace. The main residence is spread over 2nd to fourth floors and includes four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. There are six fireplaces and a huge balcony that overlooks the equally massive gardens.
Features - The house is unique as it is 18ft wide and since it faces south, it gets sunlight throughout the day. There is an open garden and the backyard helps to cool the interiors. There are tall windows in every floor which facilitates full entry of light. But the best part of the house is 39-foot-long-backyard and the upper balcony which overlooks it. This is the best place for the morning coffee. The backyard features an English style garden that also has a wrought iron patio set.
Neighborhood - There are lots of shops near this 'Harry Potter' house and this street is very close to the renowned meat packing district.
40 Mercer Home, New York
In 2007 Mt Radcliff spent $4,300,000 for an apartment on the fifth floor of 40 Mercer. This is a loft style flat in the sleek and stylish glass walled building. There is no information available on whether he actually moved into this apartment or not.
Location - The apartment is located on a building in 40 Mercer Street, NY. Ironically, the building is named after this street. To be more precise, the residential apartment building is located on the corner of Broadway and Grand streets in the SoHo district of Manhattan.
Accommodation - The apartment on the fifth floor of the building features 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and floor to ceiling windows. The home spreads over 1,843 sq ft and he can also access the swimming pool and steam room. According to reports, the apartment was on rental market with an asking rent of $20,000 per month. It seems UK's richest teen does not want to lag behind in the real estate scenario.
Features - The building looks very trendy and is designed by the famous Andre Balasz and it is architected by Jean Nouvel. The main feature of this apartment is the 50 foot swimming pool though we don't know how frequently the Harry Potter star visited the pool. The building has a unique feature which makes it stand out among other other buildings in the same area. It has a card reader at the lobby level which identifies the owner of an apartment and takes him/her directly to their floor.
Neighborhood - Not much information is available on the neighborhood but we can confirm that there are many luxury apartments and retail spaces in the adjoining areas.
1 Morton Square Home, New York
In 2008 Daniel Radcliffe stunned the entertainment world by coolly forking out $4.9 million for a 3 bedroom luxury condo in the Manhattan.The good news is that the boy wizard will actually inhabit this apartment.
Location - The house is located on 40 Mercer Street in the SoHo neighborhood of the Manhattan.
Accommodation - The 11th floor condo spreads over 2450 sq ft and has a living room which alone covers an area of more than 400 sq ft. The most notable feature are the semi-circular glass walls that afford a stunning view of the Hudson River. The eat -in kitchen is unique and will be liked by the Harry Potter star and there is also a butler's pantry.
Features - The marble and granite surfaces make this condo look really beautiful. But the most striking feature of the accommodation is perhaps the 500 bottle wine cellar. But since he was still underage at the time of purchasing this property, we assume he will have little use for this.
Neighborhood - He has some really famous neighbors for company including the comedian Amy Poeler and her comedian husband Will Arnett. Even super rich Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen owns a condo but they do not occupy it.

It has roomy interiors and has several soft-touch panels and some stitchy leather. The only area where the new Grande Punto scores badly is its exteriors which leaves much to be desired.
Book Aid International
Radcliffe seems to be god-sent for being actively involved with providing education to the people who cannot afford it.

Daniel Radcliffe's silent association with Demelza House has been appreciated for long. Demelza House is reportedly known for having restored around 450 children to their normal health along with their grief-stricken families. Concentrating its activities around Kent, East Sussex and South London, Demelza House's level of commitment is worth the respect. He also supports the The Trevor Project.
The charity organisation humbly claims: "Our focus is on adding life when days cannot be added to life".
Radcliffe seems to be actually going that extra mile for helping Luke Neuhedel Foundation that works to improve the quality of cancer-stricken children and provides aid to families who are dealing with cancer patients. Now that is what we call as living for a cause. A true nouveau riche of the times, Daniel Radcliffe is definitely a true Harry Potter of our times: benevolent, generous and humane!
