Harry Potter star Rupert Grint has waved a magic wand over his TV company and it is now worth £23m.
The actor, who played one of wizard Harry’s best pals Ron Weasley in the smash hit movie series from the age of 11, runs Clay 10 to handle his `artistic creation’ earnings.
New accounts show it is worth £23.45m – up £2.3m on the previous year – and boasts more than £8m in cash assets.
Rupert also runs a property empire with dad Nigel worth more than £25m.
The actor – now 33 – owns more than 75% of Clay 10.
Since completing the Potter films in 2011 he has starred in a high profile TV ad campaign promoting British holidays and carried the torch ahead of the London 2012 Olympics.
He now stars in Apple TV+ psychological thriller Servant and has just landed a role in forthcoming US horror movie Knock At The Cabin which will be filmed next year.
Rupert, who has a two-year-old daughter with his actress partner Georgia Groome, 30, is now estimated to be worth around £50m thanks to his shrewd investments.
His property development business Oneonesix builds family homes in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.
At the same time he has devoted much of his time to charity fundraising.
He took part in the 2010 Wacky Rally to raise cash for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, auctioned a painted butterfly for funds for a hospice and supports Cancer Research UK.
Rupert is also a record-breaker.
When he joined Instagram in November 2020, posting a photo of himself holding his newborn daughter he reached one million followers within four hours and one minute.
That broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest Instagram account to reach one million followers.
