  Potter Daniel Radcliffe is youngest rich teenager
  
  Daniel Radcliffe becomes the youngest person to make this year's Sunday Times Rich List.
  
  The 17-year-old "Harry Potter" star's wealth raised 8 million in the past year, as royalties come through, taking him to an estimated 14 million, and placing him firmly among the list of the nation's 5,000 wealthiest people.
  
  Philip Beresford, who put the list together, said Radcliffe - thanks to the ongoing Potter series would not have to worry about finance for a very long time.
  
  "He is still at school but he is in a position where he will never have to work again. Money has been pouring in to his personal company, largely from royalties he is paid every time the films are shown on TV", said Beresford.
  
  "If he wants to go to university, we can safely say he won't need to worry about a student loan", added Philip.
  
  The youngest woman on the list is soul singer Joss Stone. The 19 year-old singer has only released two albums so far but has collected an estimated fortune of 6 million.

  
  
“哈利·波特”的扮演者丹尼尔·雷德克里弗日前荣登《星期日泰晤士报》本年度富豪排行榜,并成为其中最年轻的富豪。
  
  这位17岁的“小魔法师”去年一年的个人资产增加了800万英镑,加上版税收入,他的总资产达到1400万英镑。丹尼尔凭此成功跻身“全英5000大富豪”的行列。
  
  排行榜编制人菲利普·比雷斯福特说,随着《哈利·波特》系列电影的不断推出,雷德克里弗将财源不断。
  
  他说:“丹尼尔现在还在上学,但以后他即使不工作,也不用愁钱花。他的收入都转入了他的私人公司,其中大部分是每部电影上映后得到的版税收入。”
  
  “如果丹尼尔想上大学,大学期间的各种费用也一定不成问题。”
  
  排行榜上最年轻的女富豪是灵歌歌手乔斯·斯通,这位19岁的歌手目前只发行了两张专辑,但她的个人财产已达到约600万英镑。
