Operating under the name Gilmore Jacobs, a company managed by Daniel Radcliffe and his parents, the actor has seen substantial returns from well-placed investments, notably a property portfolio valued at nearly £3.4 million. Last year, the company boasted a daily income of £20,000 and contributed £456,000 in corporation tax, reflecting an estimated profit of £2 million.

Despite a reported drop in his overall fortune due to global market fluctuations, Daniel Radcliffe’s financial journey has been remarkable since his breakthrough as Harry Potter in 2001. The actor’s parents, Marcia and Alan, who have overseen his finances since his first fee of £800,000 from Harry Potter, signed off on the accounts. Daniel currently owns properties in west London and New York, with earnings of £40 million from the last two films in the franchise.

Speculation about Daniel’s potential role as the successor to Hugh Jackman in the Marvel series remains unconfirmed, although his sculpted physique has fueled such rumors. In a November interview, Daniel Radcliffe expressed sadness while discussing a tragic incident involving his friend and stunt double, David Holmes, who was paralyzed during the filming of “Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1.” Despite the challenges, Daniel emphasized the positive impact David’s life has had on those around him.

The close bond between Daniel and David is evident in a documentary titled “David Holmes: The Boy Who Lived,” where Daniel tearfully reflects on the unfairness of the accident and the profound impact it had on their lives. The tragic incident occurred during the rehearsal of a stunt at Warner Bros Studios in Leavesden in 2009, underscoring the risks involved in the pursuit of cinematic excellence.
