It’s crazy to think that in 2019, it will be 18 years since the movie Harry Potter and the Sorceror’s Stone came out (or Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone for you fans in the U.K.). That means the Harry Potter film series will officially be of adult age. And of course the kid actors who starred in the films are well into adulthood by now. In fact, some of them are already in their 30s. So are you feeling old yet? Well, let’s take a look at the child stars of Harry Potter then and now. Because don’t you want to see what they’re up to these days?
Harry Potter Then
Casting the “Harry Potter” movies must have been tricky as hell since they were essentially signing up a small army of 10-year-olds for a 10-year job. Child actors may have cutness, charm and even a little talent, but there’s never any telling if it’ll last into young adulthood. When they cast Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter himself, they were taking a giant gamble that the cherubic little boy would grow up to be a young man with magnetism, intensity and acting chops.
