Harry Potter quetion!!!

So I thought of this question yesterday and now I would really like to know. Do you think that the actors that played Harry, Ron, and Hermione got more money from the movies or do you think J.K. Rowling made more money from her books? At first I thought it might have been the actors but then I thought about how each of the books made millions within their first week. What do you guys think?

According to Forbes, JK Rowling was worth $1 billion back when only four movies were out. I can't imagine what it's at now. In 2010, Daniel Radcliffe was worth $45.4 million, before the Deathly Hallows movies were out. Not to mention, JK Rowling will be getting royalty payments for the next 50 years of her life, at least. Crazy, right?!

That is a really good question-I'd imagine J.K. Rowling would make more than the actors-I would hope anyway

I remember seeing the same article. I also think I recently heard that she's like the second richest person in the United Kingdom. :smileysurprised:)
