Figures compiled for the Sunday Times Rich List illustrate just how lucrative the Harry Potter and Twilight film franchises have been for their stars.
Just as JK Rowling’s wizard adventures have beaten Stephenie Meyer’s vampire saga at the box office, Radcliffe has won the wealth battle against Pattinson.
Radcliffe, 21, is now said to be worth a staggering £48 million thanks to his appearances as Harry Potter on the big screen and his stage work.
Pattinson, 24, who appeared in the Harry Potter movies before going on to play Edward Cullen in the Twilight films, has amassed a £32 million fortune.
The figures put them in fifth and eighth positions respectively on the list of wealthiest Britons under 30.
With Keira Knightley’s £30 million securing tenth place in the table, it seems being a young actor pays better than being a young royal.
Prince William and his brother Harry only make 11th, with their inheritance from their late mother and land ownership worth £28 million.
That did at least put them ahead of Harry Potter stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, who tied for 13th with £24 million.

Whom did you adore when you were a teenager?
Puppy love wasn’t my thing. Maybe Arsenal London but that’s it.
Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz have an OSCAR at home, you are known as a teenage-swarm. How could you assert yourself?
It was very easy. You should always work with the best, it’s easy for you then. Reese and Christoph have been a kind of insurance package.
In your movies, you’re suffering all the time. Must love always hurt?
When you look at my character in WfE, of course! Nearly every time I kiss Reese I get hurt afterwards (laughs)
I just wanted to take a moment to say a HUGE thank you to all the ToR girls who rocked the Water for Elephants promo! Promo time takes a lot of our time and energy and they worked a countless amount of hours with barely no sleep to keep the site updated. Sim also made AMAZING signs and banners for the premieres. Major kudos girls!!!
