Great that Dan is listed. Nice to know that his work on Broadway the past year didn’t go unnoticed. He’ll be on again next time round because of HBP coming out and also the DH films too. As to him being a draw post-HP – that’s a ridiculous thing to even mention – HP is the biggest series ever, it’s unlikely that any of the stars of it will have as big a box office as the HP films. I doubt Dan wants to be a load of big budget films post HP anyway – they may not be what interests him. And tbh, most big budget films aren’t considered particularly good and don’t get a lot of acclaim. I think it’s more important for Dan to work on projects that mean more to him and that challenge him – he’s already gotten so much respect for Equus. I can see why Emma and Rupert aren’t listed – they didn’t actually have anything of note out last year – even though Emma had her cartoon I don’t think that was considered “influential”.

Dan is such a great example of a positive celebrity image. The Forbes article states, ‘Fame is calculated using Web hits on Google Blog Search, TV/radio mentions on LexisNexis, overall press mentions on Factiva and the number of times a celebrity’s image appeared on the cover of 25 consumer magazines" so it is understandable why J.K. is not on the list this time with no book out or high profile law suits pending to keep her in the news. I am sure she is happy to be out of the spotlight for a bit.

JKR could still buy all of us…and stephanie meyer. However congrats for Dan, I am thoroughly convinced that he will continue to make movies and somewhere down the line he will lose the title of Harry Potter and people will just recognize him as an actor instead of a character. good for him.

As usual the Headmistress is totally correct! Anyone who read the reviews for Equus would never have said such a dumb thing!
