Daniel Radcliffe has hardly touched his Harry Potter fortune

Think of all the things you could do if you’d managed to rack up a £75million fortune by your 27th birthday.

Buy a tropical island? Or how about frittering away a few quid on a football club?

Well, if you’re Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe, the answer, rather disappointingly, is “not a lot.”

The star has revealed that he’s barely scratched the surface of all that money he’s made – and it’s not exactly burning a hole in his pocket.

“I don’t really do anything with my money,” he admitted. “I’m very grateful for it, because having money means you don’t have to worry about it, which is a very lovely freedom to have. It also gives me immense freedom career-wise.”

The British actor has been raking it in since he first played Hogwarts’ most famous pupil in 2001 at the age of just 11. And while he’s one of the most recognisable stars in the world, but he’s not one to follow the money, preferring to instead concentrate on roles he’s genuinely interested in.

“For all the people who’ve followed my career, I want to give them something to be interested in, rather than just make loads of money on c*** films for the rest of my life, he explained.

“Ultimately, the hardest thing about growing up in the spotlight, it’s not the easy access to drugs or the strange, sort of pandering world you enter into. The difficulty is trying to work out who you are while constantly coming up against a perception of yourself that everybody else already has.

“I think it’s very important, especially when you become famous young, to work out who you are without fame and without that as part of your identity, because that will go.

“Fame does not last forever. For anyone.”

Wise words, Daniel. Lend us a tenner, mate?
