Potter Stars Among Hollywood's Highest Young Earners

HARRY POTTER stars DANIEL RADCLIFFE, EMMA WATSON and RUPERT GRINT have made the top 20 in a list of the highest paid celebrities under 30.
The talented trio has found themselves among such illustrious company as pop star Beyonce Knowles, U.S. basketball ace Kobe Bryant and Hollywood beauty Katherine Heigl on the rich list, compiled by American publication Forbes.
Radcliffe, who plays J.K. Rowling's hero wizard in the popular fantasy series, raked in the biggest fortune for the year ending June 2008, amassing a staggering $32.5 million (GBP23.8 million) to outstrip the likes of Miley Cyrus and all three Jonas Brothers.
