Of all the movie series we know, 'Harry Potter' franchise will probably remain to be an all-time favorite amongst us fans. Least to say J.K Rowling literally created magic with her wand, or should we say her pen.
Just like that, one of the most unforgettable cast from the movie is the ginger head, Rupert Grint, a.k.a Ronald Weasley. The British actor portrayed the character of a hilarious and equally lovable young boy, friends with 'Harry,' played by Daniel Radcliffe and 'Hermione,' played by Emma Watson. We practically saw these young actors grow into a full-blown adult throughout the magical movie series.
After all, Harry Potter's success was the ticket to fame for all the casts involved. Their hard work was paid with success, limelight, recognition, and not to miss a hefty paycheck. By the looks of it, the actors are pretty much set for their career as the highest amount earned by the last Harry Potter movie was a massive 1.34 billion dollars. So, today we quench the thirst of fans wanting to know just how rich Rupert Grint from the star cast is.
