Daniel Radcliffe Has Apparently Barely Touched All that Harry Potter Money

It's just sitting in Gringotts, gathering dust.

Daniel Radcliffe's got enough money to fill a Gringotts vault a couple times over, but you won't catch him speeding around in a high-end sports car or a top-of-the-line Nimbus 2000 for that matter. The former Harry Potter star keeps his spending under control, so he's still got a big chunk of his money from playing the famous wizard — $96 million in fact

"I don’t really do anything with my money," he told The Mirror. "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."

Radcliffe made his debut in the franchise at just 11 when Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone hit theaters in 2001. And while he's faced a few struggles over the years, he says he's happy where he is now, and never moreso than when he's working on set.

"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," he said. "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."
