LONDON – Actors, such as Daniel Radcliffe and Robert Pattinson, musicians, led by Adele, and models dominate the Young Rich List of British millionaires age 30 and under that “The Sunday Times” is scheduled to publish later this month.
Its Rich List 2012, set to come out on April 29, includes 60 young millionaires along with the 1,000 richest people in Britain and the 250 richest in Ireland, the paper said.
Outside of sports, which has its own Times rich list in May, more than half of the wealthiest young people in the U.K. are entertainers, according to the paper.
The young entertainment crowd is led by Harry Potter star Radcliffe, 22, who is worth $31.8 (£54) million, the Times said. He has increased his wealth by $9.5 million over the past year, helped by the success of his latest movie, The Woman in Black.
Twilight star Robert Pattinson saw a bigger $12.7 million gain in his net worth over the past year, but comes in second with $63.6 million.
Harry Potter co-stars Emma Watson ($41.4 million, up from $38.2 million) and Rupert Grint (unchanged at $38.2 million) rank fifth and sixth on the actors’ list.
Adele, 23, is the young British entertainer who made the biggest jump in the past year. The pop singer more than tripled her wealth thanks to her second album 21 to $31.8 million.
Her $22.3 million gain leaves her $12.7 million clear of Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis and Katie Melua who share the second spot in the young music millionaires ranking.
The list of young U.K. models is topped by Keira Knightley who was worth $47.7 million in 2011 just like in 2010 and also shows up on the actors list.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, worth $8 million, is the latest entry on the model and actors list. Based in LA, she has branched out into movies with a part in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
