London - Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe on Tuesday topped a Heat Magazine list of the richest, young British entertainers, retaining his No 1 position in the ranking of people under 30 years old.
Robert Pattinson, lead actor of the rival fantasy film franchise Twilight, moved up to third from fifth and leapfrogged two of Radcliffe's Potter co-stars, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, according to the celebrity magazine.
Actress Keira Knightley, who starred in several of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, remained second on the chart, while singer Adele was the highest new entry at 16.
Radcliffe, 22, who played the boy wizard in the movie adaptations of J.K. Rowling's best-selling novels, earned £51.8m over his career, according to Heat estimates. The actor's earnings for 2011 were £6.1m higher than in 2010.
Knightley's earnings totalled £30.9m, ahead of Pattinson on £24.9m, Watson on £23.9m and Grint on £21.7m.
Adele, whose second album 21 is set to be the biggest selling album in the world this year, entered the list at No 16 with a fortune of £7.7m.
Three stars dropped out of this year's list - opera star Katherine Jenkins and model Kelly Brook both exceeded the 30-year-old threshhold and singer Amy Winehouse, ranked 15th last year, died in July.
