Dun-duuun-dun-dun-dun-dun-duuuuun-dun, dun-dun-dun-duuun-dun-duuuuuun. Yep, if you’re skilled in the art of dun-dun-translation, you’ll know that we were OBVIOUSLY singing the Harry Potter theme tune. After all, Hazza P is life. This book and movie franchise has been the apple of our eye, the center of our universe, and the ultimate peas to our carrots as both adults and children – because you definitely don’t grow out of Harry Potter. No matter how old we get, we still can’t hide our disappointment as each birthday passes and we still don’t get our acceptance letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry through Owl Mail. There must be something wrong with the system, so we will have to get in touch with the Ministry of Magic and get that sorted ASAP. We’ve got our N.E.W.T.S to pass, you know. While we love the book series as much as the next Muggle (you rock, J.K Rowling), there’s no denying that the movies helped bring our magical dreams to life and entertain us for hours. Each movie has been better than the last, with even more special effects, even more characters, and even whole new storylines.
As if that wasn’t cool enough, most of us have grown up with Harry and the gang, and have been able to watch him grow from a specky little kid to a full-on adult who just kinda saves the whole world from an evil wizard with no nose who wants to use dark magic to show that he’s better than everyone else. As you do. Of course, we all know what happens to these characters after they leave Hogwarts. Hermione becomes the Minister for Magic (it was only a matter of time), Harry and Ginny finally get it on and have three adorable children whose names are quite possibly the coolest thing in the wizarding world, Neville becomes a Hogwarts professor, and even Ron becomes a hot-shot Ministry of Magic employee. Who would have thunk it?! Yet, have you ever wondered what the cast of Harry Potter are up to now? What are the cast of Harry Potter doing with their lives? What do the Harry Potter cast look like now? Well, all you need to do is say “ACCIO AWESOME FACTS,” and you’ll be checking them out in no time…
Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter – Then
The Man himself – Harry Potter. Radcliffe was asked to audition for the role of Harry Potter by the film’s producer, David Heyman, after watching Daniel in a BBC adaptation of David Copperfield. Because of the demands of filming Harry Potter, Radcliffe eventually had to receive his education through on-site tutors.
