Harry Potter was EXTREMELY popular when I was growing up. Every kid in school was reading the books. It was all anyone talked about in-between classes and after school. Kids got caught up in their imagination of getting their own acceptance letter to Hogwarts and having great adventures like Harry, Ron and Hermione. Most people remember when the first movie came out. Everyone went completely nuts. We watched these actors grow in front of our eyes for 8 movies. Not much has been seen of many of them since the last movie though. What do they look like now? Well take a look and see for yourself.
He went from a wimpy little kid to semi-bearded man right before our eyes. He will forever be the face of Harry Potter.
It really is astonishing she went from the nerdy looking girl in the first movie to being one of the most gorgeous women on the entire planet.
I’m not sure he will ever escape the shadow of his character Ron Weasley.
Good thing he got rid of that hair.
Carter is an extraordinary actress. I’ve loved her in almost everything I’ve seen her in.
The beard before and after.
Another amazing actor who has played some fantastic roles. His versatility is what stands out to me. He can play many different types of characters.
She looks completely different!
A legendary actor.
Minerva was always one of my favorite characters in the books.
James and Oliver Phelps.
The most stunning transformation out of the whole cast. Much has been made of Matthew Lewis going from that chubby, buck tooth kid, to modeling sensation.
She was so awkward and weird in the movies. She’s definitely grown into herself though.
I haven’t heard anything about this guy since the movies have ended. He definitely lost some weight though.
Harry Potter was just the stepping stone for bigger and better things for Pattinson. This role launched him into his role in Twilight that gained him super stardom.
I don’t know how I never realized this was Gary Oldman.
Definitely the best ghost at Hogwarts!
He was definitely one of the most hated characters in the books.
Her voice infuriated me to no end.
He played this character to perfection. They could not have picked a better actor for this role.
These Harry Potter actors now look completely different then when they started this series of incredible movies. It’s hard to believe it’s been 18 years since these movies started filming. It seems like yesterday the books were just coming out. Maybe I’ll start reading them again when I get home later today!
