The Harry Potter star who was embroiled in a traumatic love triangle and is now dating Bradley Cooper’s ex-girlfriend
Twenty years after Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone first appeared on our television screens, dozens of young actors have turned their childhood roles into full-fledged acting careers.
And it’s not just Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson who are now sitting on multi-million pound fortunes thanks to all of their hard work.
In fact, some have arguably gone on to bigger and better things than the top three players.

Robert Pattinson portrayed the loyal and courageous Hufflepuff Cedric Diggory in the fourth Harry Potter film – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
The 35-year-old only starred in this one movie, however, as his place as one of four contestants in the Triwizard Tournament came to an abrupt end when he was assassinated by Voldemort who had him. hit with the infamous Killing Curse.
From Harry Potter, Pattinson went on to play the role of Edward Cullen in the Twilight film series, winning the hearts of teenage girls as he played the vampire love interest of Bella (Kristen Stewart).
The couple quickly began a true romance off the set.
After three years of dating, Stewart was pictured with her Snow White director and hunter Rupert Sanders, revealing an affair in July 2012.
On the day the photos were released, Sanders, who was 19 years older than Stewart and married at the time, issued a public apology for the affair.
The couple broke up, but rekindled their romance in October 2012 and finally broke up for good about seven months later.
Sources close to Pattinson said he was “humiliated” and “traumatized” after what happened, according to the London evening standard.
Kristen said at the time: “I am deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I have caused to my loved ones and to all who have been affected by it.
“This momentary indiscretion has put the most important thing in my life at risk, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”

“My beautiful wife and my heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I pray that we can go through this together.”

Waterhouse has also starred in a number of movies and TV shows, most notably as Marlene in the sequel to Divergent Insurgent, and as Quintana in Billionaire Boys Club.
Since becoming famous in the Harry Potter and Twilight franchises, Pattinson has seen success in the form of a number of roles.
Next year, he’ll once again grace our movie screens in the new Batman movie. According to CelebrityNetWorth, the star is estimated to be around $ 100 million.
