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:

Harry Potter has cast a spell on millions of fans and created magic for its stars Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson who continue to ride the meteoric success of the film franchise straight to the bank picking up Guinness World Records along the way. Radcliffe is the "Highest-Grossing Actor of the Decade", raking in an average of $558 million per film. Watson, on the other hand, earned the record for "Highest Average Box-Office Gross for an Actress". She has been in six movies that have grossed an average of $753.7 million each.
The inclusion of Radcliffe and Watson follow such other notable additions on the 'Most Powerful' records, including actor Johnny Depp (Pirates of the Caribbean) as "Most Powerful Actor" and actress Angelina Jolie (A Mighty Heart) as "Most Powerful Actress."  Guinness World Records 2010 will be released on September 1th and retail for $28.95.

I am not surprised by this at all. Another statistic is that Dan has more movie making hours logged than many adult actors have had in their lifetimes. It is another bit of magic of the HP movies that they have been able to hold the cast together for all this time. Can’t wait to see the actual stats when DH2 is released.

I look at the money that has been taken in and see the potential for a lot of good movies to be made due to the money they made. WB will use the money for a good use to make more films

I was thinking the same thing…they were in the book largely because of the HP movies…Rupert isn’t there because Dan is the lead, and there is no record for “second best.” It sucks though. In the books, movies, and real life, he is always in Harry’s shadow…

Guess That Book

Harry watched Hagrid getting redder and redder in the face as he called for more wine, finally kissing Professor McGonagall on the cheek, who, to Harry's amazement, giggled and blushed, her top hat lopsided.
