'Harry Potter's Emma Watson Gets $20 Million Birthday Present

'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson (photosEmma Watson photos) really had something to celebrate as she turned 18 this week.

Watson, who plays Hermione Granger in the 'Potter' movies, finally has access to the over $20 million she's earned while working on the franchise.

But just so there isn't any splurging, Emma's parents have enrolled her in a 'millionaire school' of sorts where she will learn how to responsibly handle the money.

The money will be managed by English bank Coutts, who also look after the Queen's wealth. She will be taught how to manage the fortune, set up a business and give to charity.

It's reported Watson will be earning $5 million for the next feature, with a further $3 million from the two part conclusion to the franchise. Co-star Daniel Radcliffe, who plays the Harry Potter himself, took control of his finances when he turned 18 last July and his worth is estimated to be around $50 million.

Emma also released a short video from the set of the upcoming 'Harry Potter' film thanking her fans for all the birthday wishes:
