The actor, 31, earned £40 million playing Harry’s best friend in the hit film series and has since made a number of savvy investments.

He most recently bought a £500,000 house in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, as well as two neighbouring houses for £1.5 million in Luton.
Rupert also owns Eevil Plan Properties and has forked out on three properties near his own home in Hertfordshire.
It comes as the actor recently welcomed his first child with girlfriend Georgia Groome.
In a statement earlier this month, the couple announced that they were now proud parents to a baby girl, just a month after confirming they were expecting their first child.
Rupert and the Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging star announced their pregnancy in April after she stepped out with a noticeable baby bump.
The couple are yet to reveal the name of their baby daughter.
