We grew up with Harry Potter (movie/novel) and lived in a fantasy world of magic and wizards. And for Potterheads, Harry Potter movies are like a world. We wish to live in it, grow in it, and know every character. That’s why; we also want to know actors of the movie, to whom we have loved so long. So, let’s take a look at the cast of Harry Potter cast now and then.
1. Daniel Radcliffe
Daniel Radcliffe who played the lead role of Harry Potter of this franchise is quite accomplished now; he was good then and is good now. He is working on one of the best projects right now.
2. Emma Watson
This lady is one of the finest human beings of this generation, in reel life or real life. After the Harry Potter series, she went back to school and graduated from Brown University in English Literature. She then helped in launching a U.N. gender equality campaign called HeForShe, which helped destigmatize the word feminist. And when Watson returned to movies, she did movies very selectively. From being a U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador to the face of Burberry and Lancome, she is best from the lot.
3. Rupert Grints
Rupert Grints played the role of the Ron Weasley, the BFF of Harry Potter and the eventual love interest for Hermione Granger. When he wasn’t Ron, the actor appeared in independent films like Driving Lessons and Cherrybomb.
4. Tom Felton
Tom Felton rose to fame after taking on the role of bad boy Draco Malfoy. Now, Felton is less-sinister than his previous character, changing from his Hogwarts uniform to more crisp suits. He was also seen in the movies like Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Apparition.
5. Bonnie Wright
Bonnie Wright went from Ron Weasley’s cute and shy younger sister Ginny, to the love interest of Hogwarts’s Golden Boy. Now, she is engaged to boyfriend Jamie Campbell Bower, who appeared as young Gellert Grindelwald in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and Caius Volturi in Breaking Dawn.
6. James and Oliver Phelps
Everyone loved James and Oliver as Fred and George Weasley, the naughty older brothers of Ron and Ginny. After finishing up on the set of Harry Potter, the dynamic duo got rid of their ginger hairstyles and three-piece suits in exchange for their natural brown hue and casual yet stylish jeans and polos.
7. Matthew Lewis
Lewis surprised everyone when he transformed himself from his awkward character of Neville into a full-on heartthrob. He has worked in movies like Rise and Me Before You. He is the ultimate underdog just like Neville from the Harry Potter series.
8. Evanna Lynch
We all loved Luna Lovegood for her weirdness and sensitivity. Just like her character, Irish actress Evanna Lynch has an eccentric and vibrant unique style.
9. Harry Melling
Do you remember the chubby and stupid cousin of Harry Potter? Well, the actor Harry Melling who played the role is not same now. After shedding around 60 pounds of weight, Harry Melling is looking quite handsome now.
