Harry Potter actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) are among the actors included in the 2010 edition of the Guinness World Records Book.  The latest edition of the venerable reference guide includes records for the two actors in categories relating to the continued box office success of the Harry Potter films.  Mr. Radcliffe was named "Highest-Grossing Actor of the Decade," while Miss Watson now holds the record for "Highest Average Box-Office Gross for an Actress."  The press release notes of Radcliffe and Watson:

Those numbers are not their personal earnings, it’s the average earnings for the films. The actors haven’t made anything close to that.

@iLoveNeville: Her films have made more than his, but Dan gets paid more. Emma did The Tale of Despereaux and that film made quite a lot of money compared to Dan’s outside projects. Emma’s film Ballet Shoes was also released in a few theaters and it made some money, but not that much.

Dan has also done more small budget films than Emma, which would bring his average down.
