Harry Potter Star Is Probably The Prettiest Woman In The World

    Harry Potter movies gave us childhood memories and moments we can’t get over. The film was a visual representation of the book series, which were equally (some fans would rate them as better than the movies) intriguing and addictive.

    When it was time to bring life to those pages, the entire cast was kept British and excellent! The writer of the book, J.K. Rowlings, did a great job creating the characters, and the series movie producers did not fall behind with the movie casting. The connection was smooth, and even characters in the book that had the most unnatural and fictional features were still adequately brought to life by the casting, so why won’t we get attached to these movie characters who gave us a pretty interesting childhood.

    Casting was one of the many unique parts of this movie, even though some fans and critics say the child actors could have done better in some scenes. From 2001 to 2011, it was a constant flow of one-of-a-kind screenplay. Now it’s ten years after the last movie in the Harry Potter series, and you’re wondering, where are the Harry Potter actors now? How do Harry Potter actors look now? Are Harry potter actors in other movies?

    We want to answer your questions, and so we decided to do the work for you. Check out all your favorite harry potter stars and where they are now.

    Ginny Weasley – Bonnie Wright

    How about we kick this off with a totally unrelated fact about Bonnie you may or may not find cool. Here it goes, the actress shares the same birthday with singer Ed Sheeran. Bonnie Wright was born on 17th February 1991 and was only nine years old when she was cast in “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” as Ginny Weasley in 2001.

    She played the youngest member of the Weasley family in all eight Harry Potter movies. Although her role in the first film was a small appearance to meet Harry Potter – Daniel Radcliffe – it became a significant buildup as the series progressed. One of the films in the series where we couldn’t get enough of her on our screens was in the fourth, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, she featured in several scenes, and we believe it was her most ample time on our screens.

    Over the years, Bonnie hasn’t only been acting, even though she has starred in several great movies. She has been swamped with fashion modeling, screenwriting, directing, and producing after studying film and television in the university. In a recent interview with E! Online, she said, “Since I’ve graduated, I’ve continued with music videos, commercials, short films, and am hopefully entering into my first feature film…”.

    She has starred in many different movies from Disney to Hallmark to BBC, and one of our favorites remains After the Dark in 2013. Most recently, the 30-year-old went back for some more magic by voicing J.K. Rowling’s “The Tales of Beedle the Bard” audiobook on a special request by J.K. Rowlings herself.

    Hermione Granger – Emma Watson

    We love that Hermione is a character that is exceptionally smart both on and off the screen. Throughout the whole series, Hermione is portrayed as an unusually talented young witch. J.K. Rowling has stated that Hermione is a “borderline genius.” Throughout her academic career, in reality, she was always on straight A’s; we love it! She was born Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson on 15th April 1990. Emma has left her iconic touch not just in acting but through the world of fashion and women’s rights activism.

    She has starred in many blockbuster movies and has received incredible recognition for them. Starting with her performance in the first film in the Harry Potter Series – Philosopher’s Stone, which was her debut professional acting performance, Emma was nominated for five awards winning the Young Artist Award for Leading Young Actress. In the second film, Emma received an Otto Award from the German magazine Bravo for her performance.

    After the last film in the Harry Potter Series, Emma juggled her time between working on movies and continuing her education. In 2014, she graduated from Brown University with a bachelor’s degree in English literature. That same year, Emma was appointed as a U.N. Women Goodwill Ambassador, and she helped launch the HeForShe UN Women campaign, which focused on men being advocates of gender equality.

    Fleur Delacour – Clemence Poesy

    Clemence Poesy played the character of  Fleur Delacour. A stunningly beautiful witch whose character evolved throughout the movie. In the 5th film – Order of the Phoenix – we didn’t see much of her, but we enjoyed her performance in the 6th movie – Half-Blood Prince, where the film revealed that she would marry Ron’s brother.

    Her name is Clémence Guichard and born on 30th October 1982, but she took her mother’s maiden name Poesy as her stage name. She studied drama and has since been active in both film and television even after the Harry Potter films. We find her in both English and french movies. Poesy’s roles include Natasha Rostova in War and Peace and the lead role in The Tunnel, a 24-episode series as Elise Wassermann. She also appeared in an Oscar-nominated film with some other Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts actors.

    We would naturally expect this talented and beautiful actress to grace the cover page of different magazines. Some of the magazines she has been featured in include i-D, on French magazine Jalouse twice, on Australia’s Yen, and Nylon. She is also a face and ambassador of Chloé fragrance.

    Bill Weasley – Domhnall Gleeson

    Domhnall had started his acting career before starring in the Harry Potter films. However, he gained more popularity for his portrayal of Bill Weasley, Ron Weasley’s older brother. Some fans call him the coolest Weasley brother for his style and ingenuity. He was later married to the stunning Fleur Delacour. Since the Harry Potter films, he has starred in many different blockbuster films and series, including Star Wars and MI5.

    Gleeson is an Irish actor, screenwriter, and director born on 12 May 1983.  He is also the son of actor Brendan Gleeson, with whom he has collaborated on many films and stage productions. The actor received a Bachelor of Arts in Media Arts from the Dublin Institute of Technology. Gleeson has also been nominated for several awards, including the Breakthrough Performer at the Hamptons International Film Festival, which he won.

    Severus Snape – Alan Rickman

    Severus Snape is a fictional character played by Alan Rickman. He is a highly qualified wizard with a cynical, cool demeanor that belies his intense emotions and anguish. Severus’ character was powerful and authoritative yet affectionate. The Guardian conducted a poll with over 13,000 voters, and Severus was voted as the favorite Harry Potter character. Most fans chose him because of the spin around his character, mean on the outside but completely in love with Lily on the inside.

    Five years after the production of Harry Potter Movies, he died at age 69. But he had made landmark achievements before his death. While Alan also shot the Harry Potter films in the 2000’s he was still actively working on the set of other great movies. He had so many recognitions throughout his career. A few include making a list as number 19 in Empire Magazine’s Greatest Living Movie Stars over the age of 50, and he was nominated twice for Broadway’s Tony Award as Best Actor in a play. His wife and two children survive him.

    Nearly Headless Nick – John Cleese

    Nearly Headless Nick, also known as Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington, starred in the first two Harry Potter Films as the resident ghost of Gryffindor House at Hogwarts. We love nearly headless Nick for his resilience. Even though an axe went through his neck 45 times, his head wouldn’t come off.

    Nearly Headless Nick was played by John Marwood Cleese, who was born on 27 October 1939. When John Cleese starred in Harry Potter’s Philosopher’s Stone and the Chamber of Secrets, he was 62 years old, and so he was already doing well into his career. He starred in some of the most notable movies in were Monthy Python and his Emmy-winning guest appearance on the American sitcom Cheers and an Academy Award nomination for his script for A Fish Called Wanda. He also gave his voice as “King Harold” for Shrek 2, Shrek the Third, and Shrek Forever After in 2010.

    John is currently 81 years old, but he’s still a prolific actor. He will play Mr. Bridwell in the forthcoming family film Clifford the Big Red Dog in 2021 and appear in Father Christmas is Back as John Christmas and Wedding of the Year as Lionel.

    Remus Lupin – David Thewlis

    David Thewlis played Remus John Lupin in the Harry Potter Series. His first appearance was in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban as the new Defence Against the Dark Arts professor.

    His character was a compassionate one with a good sense of humor. He showed us how having a tough life doesn’t mean we should give ourselves to utterly making the lives of others miserable. He was married to Nymphadora Tonks in the movie. Ever since The Harry Potter films, we have seen him take on roles in big hit movies like Justice League, Wonder Woman, War Horse, and the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Most recently, he appeared in “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” in 2020, and for plans in the nearest future, we know he will appear in Avatar 3 in 2024.

    Harry Potter – Daniel Radcliffe

    Daniel Radcliffe got into the limelight for playing one of the lead roles of Harry Potter in the Harry Potter films. His character was founded on the grounds of being a wizard destined to be the doom of the movie’s villain. Although he didn’t know this, he found out on his 11th birthday and went to school in Hogwarts, a school for wizards.

    After the Harry Potter films, Daniel spread his nets wide by acting in movies of different genres. He starred in the horror film “The Woman in Black” in 2012 and the rom-com “What If” in 2013, to mention a few. The actor has also recently appeared in TBS’s “Miracle Workers” from 2019 to 2020 and Netflix’s 2011 Broadway revival of the musical “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”.

    Seamus Finnigan – Devon Murray

    Devon Murray played Seamus Finnigan’s character. This character was one of Harrys’ friends in Gryffindor, and we are sure he loved explosions. Devon appeared in all films in the series. As to what Seamus has been doing lately, he hasn’t given us so much screen time, but in January 2021, he welcomed a son with his two-year girlfriend, Shannon McCaffrey Quinn.

    Argus Filch – David Bradley

    Argus Filch, the grouchy Hogwarts caretaker, was portrayed by David Bradley. David Bradley started his career in the ’80s, although his role in the Harry Potter films helped push him out more.

    After Harry Potter, we have seen David do his thing in blockbusters like the all-time classic Game of Thrones where he played Walder Frey. We also see him in The Strain, Captain America: The First Avenger in 2011, and most recently, Tales of Arcadia, to mention a few. David also won an Annie Award for Best Voice Actor in a Television Series for his performance as Merlin in Tales of Arcadia.

    David Bradley has been making feats in his career over time. He also reprised the role of a doctor in the 2017 Christmas special, “Twice Upon a Time.”  This role makes David the third actor to play that role since the start of the television program, and at the age of 75, he is also the oldest actor to play the doctor’s role. His performance in an ITV series also earned him the Best Supporting Actor award at the 2014 British Academy Television Awards.

    Dolores Umbridge – Imelda Staunton

    Dolores Umbridge appeared in 3 of the Harry Potter Movies, starting as a cruel Senior Undersecretary to the Minister for magic in the Order of the Phoenix but was sentenced to Azkaban for life after the second Wizarding war for her crimes against Muggle-borns.

    Imelda Staunton is the British actress who portrays Dolores Umbridge in the films. After the Harry Potter movies, we’ve seen her appear in other movies, and our favorite is the role of a fairy godmother in “Maleficent.” She also gave us some quality screen time in her performance as Momma Rose in the 2015 movie Gypsy and 2016 movie Follies, where she played Sally.

    Cho Chang – Katie Leung

    Katie Liu Leung played the beautiful first love interest for the titular and lead character, Harry Potter. Since the Harry Potter films, this August-born Scottish actress has appeared in movies like T2: Trainspotting in 2017, and she played one of the lead roles in the 2018 ITV series White Dragon.

    The most recent time we’ve seen Katie on the screens would be her performance in Martin Campbell’s feature The Foreigner, where she stars alongside Pierce Brosnan and Jackie Chan.

    Young Tom Riddle – Hero Fiennes Tiffin

    Hero Fiennes Tiffin was born into a family of film actors and creators. After earning his spot in the Harry Potter films through auditions, the producers also say that his resemblance to his uncle, Ralph Fiennes, who plays Voldemort in Harry Potter, was also a clincher.

    This young actor is now 23 and has starred in quality movies and bagged some awards since Harry Potter. Most recently, we see him as the male lead actor, playing Hardin Scott in the “After” rom-com series – After (2019), After We Collided (2020), and After We Fell, to be released in September 2021.

    For his performance in the first film in the After series, he won the Teen Choice Awards for Choice Drama Movie Actor and the rising star award at the 2019 Ischia Film Festival.

    Barty Crouch Sr. – Roger Lloyd Pack

    Roger Lloyd Pack played Barty Crouch, Sr. in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He was a versatile character actor who portrayed the role of an influential Ministry of Magic official. He was the Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement during the First Wizarding War but was demoted to the Head of the Department of International Magical Cooperation afterwards.

    Before the Harry Potter films, he starred as the slow-witted road sweeper Trigger on BBC’s Only Fools and Horses. However, after the series, he didn’t do much, and people assume it was because he was already ill. Lloyd-Pack died of pancreatic cancer in his home at the of 69 on 15 January 2014. 

    Gregory Goyle – Josh Herdman

    Not many fans like Gregory Goyle’s character since he was always bullying our favs, but at least he played his part well, and starring in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” was his first break into the acting industry.

    After Harry Potter films, he starred in ‘Robin Hood’ in 2018, which gave him more popularity, and after this, he appeared in two TV series. Josh Herdman has also become a martial artist, and he has recorded a couple of victories. He is also married and blessed with children.

    Mundungus Fletcher – Andy Linden

    Andy Linden portrayed Mundungus Fletcher. His character was a founding member of the Order of the Phoenix, and even though this was for a good cause, Fletcher still had his hands on a lot of dirty things, which caused other members of the Order to doubt him.

    He was, however, fiercely loyal to the Order’s leader, Albus Dumbledore, who once saved Fletcher’s butt. Since the end of Andy’s time on the set of Harry Potter, we’ve seen him in BBC’s Count Arthur Strong-John the Watch series (2013-2017), Rise of the Footsoldier Part II in 2015, and Quacks Fitz the Guard in 2017.

    Sybill Trelawney – Emma Thompson

    Professor Sybill Patricia Trelawney’s character was a witch and professor of Divination at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Sybill gave us good laughs in this character, and it was portrayed by the BAFTA, Golden Globe, Emmy, and two-time Academy Award-winning English actress Emma Thompson.

    Emma is all about entertainment. She is also a comedian and screenwriter. After starring in three Harry Potter films, which included Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, we found her acting in and producing some movies herself, including Effie Gray (2014), Bridget Jones’s Baby (2016), and Last Christmas (2019).

    Xenophilius Lovegood – Rhys Ifans

    Xenophilus appeared in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. Some say he came in late; we say he came at the nick of time to teach Harry exactly what he needed to know about the symbol representing this particular film.

    Shortly after his performance in this role, he acted as Dr. Curt Connors in The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012. Ifans also starred in The Five Year Engagement. He will play as Rasputin (of all people) in The King’s Man for other plans. Rhys won the 2012 Teens Choice Award for Choice Movie Villain for his role in The Amazing Spider-Man.

    Mr. Ollivander – John Hurt

    John Hurt played a wand shop owner in the Harry Potter films. His character holds nostalgic moments for fans as it was his character who gave Harry his first wand. He appeared in the Philosopher’s Stone and the Deathly Hallows.

    John started his acting career in the early 1960s, and by 1980 he had already gained recognitions such as BAFTA, Oscar, and Golden Globe Nominations. One of our favorite appearances of him after Harry Potter was in Hercules (2014), although he was in so many movies and some of which were still released after his death.

    In 2015, John announced that he was battling pancreatic cancer, but this didn’t stop him from working. Later in 2015, he revealed that his cancer was in remission, but three days to his 77th birthday, he died in his home on 25th January. Fans of the Harry Potter Show paid a wand tribute to him.

    Fenrir Greyback – Dave Legeno

    Fenrir Greyback played the ambitious and notorious werewolf in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows parts 1 and 2. English actor Dave Legeno portrayed this character.

    After his time on the set of Harry Potter, he starred in The Raven, Titanic (series), Snow White, and The Huntsman and Last Knights in 2015, which was his last acting role. Dave was found dead by a pair of hikers on 6th July 2014 in Death Valley, California. Specialists say he died of heat-related problems.

    Fred Weasley – James Phelps

    James Phelps was given the role of Fred Weasley right before the shooting started. This delay in choice was because the producers hadn’t decided who would play either of the twins by James and his twin brother Oliver. James appeared in three of the Harry Potter films, and in January 2014, the twins attended the Harry Potter Celebration in Orlando.

    Now James and his brother do a podcast on Youtube and share it across other streaming platforms. Their third season of the podcast airs in 2021. They have hosted a reasonable number of guest stars and former co-stars, including Evanna Lynch, Katie Leung, Sasha Banks, Tom Hopper, and many more. His most recent movie appearance is in the 2021 horror film Last Night in Soho. James is also married to Annika Ostle. They tied the knot in 2016 and lived with their dogs, Tonto and Jason.

    George Weasley – Oliver Phelps

    News has it that Oliver Phelps is 13 minutes younger than his twin brother, James Phelps. Oliver plays George Weasley in the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. George may be the silliest of the bunch but is charismatic and affectionate. After the Harry Potter Films, Oliver and his twin left the big screen for a while until they came back with an appearance in the movie Danny and the human zoo.

    In October 2018, the sibling duo opened an exhibition center in Berlin for these classic books and film adaptations by J.K Rowlings.

    Bellatrix Lestrange – Helena Bonham

    Helena Bonham replaced Helen McCrory, who was initially supposed to play this role but couldn’t because she was pregnant. Bellatrix Lestrange was a villain, a witch, and one of the evilest Death eaters. She appeared in the Harry Potter series’s final four movies, including Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,  the Half-Blood Prince, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Part 2.

    Helena has starred in other blockbuster movies since Harry Potter-like Alice Through the Looking Glass in 2016. She played the Red Queen, Cinderella in 2017, where she played a Fairy Godmother; the list is endless. She is a highly successful and recognized actress with British Academy Film Award, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, and nominations for two Academy Awards, nine Golden Globes, four Primetime Emmy Awards, and four British Academy Television Awards, all to her name.

    Helena Ravenclaw – Kelly Mcdonald

    Kelly Macdonald was initially being asked to play Nymphadora Tonks in the 5th Harry Potter film. Still, instead, she replaced Nina Young, who portrayed Helena Ravenclaw in the film adaptations of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Since Kelly has been on the big screen in the 1980s, her performances have earned her Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Emmy Award nominations and win. 

    After starring in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2 in 2011, we find Kelly in huge movies like Brave, Ralph Breaks the Internet, and continuing the Broadwalk Empire. Most recently, and thanks to Line of Duty, Season 6 Kelly has been exploding our screens in 2021.

    Narcissa Malfoy – Helen McCrory

    Narcissa Malfoy played Draco Malfoy’s mother in the last three films of the Harry Potter franchise, although this wasn’t Helen’s first role. While shooting the Order of the Phoenix, Helen was cast as Bellatrix Lestrange but had to pull out because of her pregnancy. 

    Over time, Helen featured in other huge movies. One of the most notable is her appearance in Peaky Blinders. Helen McCrory died of cancer at the age of 52 on 16th April 2021, in London. She was survived by her husband Damian Lewis and two children.

    Padma Patil – Afshan Azad

    Afshan Azad played Padma Patil, a witch in the same year as Harry Potter at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Her character also had a twin sister. Padma Patil became a prefect in her fifth year and was also a member of Dumbledore’s Army. She fought in the 1998 Battle of Hogwarts.

    Azad hasn’t been on the big screen lately, but she got married in August 2018, and the couple is already expecting their first child.

    Peter Pettigrew – Timothy Spall

    Petter Pettigrew or ‘Scrabbers’ was the untrustworthy Wormtail who betrayed Harry and his longtime friends to gain an alliance with the villain Voldemort. Timothy Spall portrayed this character, and he appeared in all Harry Potter movies produced between 2004 to 2010.

    After his time on the set of Harry Potter, he starred as himself in the television documentary Timothy Spall: at Sea shot between 2010–2012. In 2014 he portrayed J.M.W Turner in Mr. Turner. He won the Best Actor Award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival for this role.

    Draco Malfoy – Tom Felton

    Since Harry Potter, Tom Felton hasn’t only been giving us appearances in good movies but also dishing out sweet melodies. This actor is also a musician and has become a Tik-Tok sensation.

    As for acting, which we mostly know him for, he started his career in 1997. Then landed his role as Draco Malfoy in the film adaptations of the best-selling Harry Potter books. After Harry Potter, he also appeared in the successful sci-fi film Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), the Rough (2011), and The Apparition (2012), and a couple of other movies in between.

    Later on, in 2015, Felton appeared as a murder suspect in Murder in the First by TNT. In the same year, he was cast in  Message from the King, A United Kingdom, and many other movies till 2017. In 2018, he appeared regularly on the sci-fi series, Origin, and appeared in Ophelia as Laertes and performed laudably.

    In his latest appearance, we see his versatility as Felton starred as the villain in family-horror A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting (2020). In 2021, Felton has been cast for roles in Save The Cinema, The Forgotten Battle, and Burial.

    Katie Bell -Georgina Leonidas

    Loving Katie Bell on our screens in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was very easy. She won the heart of many with her short and remarkable performance in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1. Georgina Leonidas played this character to critical praise, and she continued to pursue a career in acting after and during the Harry Potter appearances. She is also notably known for her performance in the TV show The Basil Brush. She has appeared in other independent and successful movies and plays like Black Coffe, Beauty and The Beast (play) Millie, Father Brown, and the lead role in Untouchable, among other shows and series.

    Mad-Eye Moody – Brendan Gleeson

    Alastor ‘Mad-Eye’ Moody went to great lengths to fight against villainy. So much he sacrificed his eyes, part of the nose, and legs for the cause. He got a magical replacement for his eyes, and it didn’t look natural at all, hence the nickname ‘mad-eye moody.’

    Only a genius actor like Brendan Gleeson would portray such a daunting and selfless character so well. Brendan is a 66-year-old Irish actor and film director. He is a recognized actor and has bagged many awards, including three IFTA Awards, two British Independent Film Awards, and a Primetime Emmy Award. Brendan has also been nominated twice for a BAFTA Award and four times for a Golden Globe Award.

    Need we say more? If all these accolades are any indication, it means that Brendan must have been doing a lot of quality acting, directing, or producing to have earned them. After Harry Potter, he lent his voice to The Smurfs 2 in 2013, featured in movies like The Grand Seduction and Calvary in 2014. In 2015 he starred in Suffragette and appeared in Paddington 2 in 2017 and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs in 2018. Brendan was recently cast as former US President Donald Trump in the miniseries, The Comey Rule in 2020.

    Rufus Scrimgeourb- Bill Nighy

    The British wizard Rufus Scrimgeourb was a powerful ranking minister in the Ministry of Magic. He initially joined the Ministry as an Auror till he evolved into a veteran and devoted most of his life to fighting evil wizards.

    Bill Nighy put up an exceptional performance for this role. He has been acting in both film and television since 1977, and after the Harry Potter sequel, he went on to do more works. Bill starred in movies like Arthur Christmas, Skylight, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Underworld film series, amongst other works. For his performance in Arthur Christmas, he won the Annie Award for the best voice in a Feature production. He also received a Tony Award nomination for his performance in Skylight and earned a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor in a miniseries or television film.

    Nymphadora Tonks – Natalia Tena

    Yet again, we find another Harry Potter cast who is in the business of making music. 37-year old Spanish actress Natalia Tena played the role of Nymphadora Tonks, a half-blood witch, and a Metamorphmagus. She was the only child of Ted and Andromeda Tonks, and she married Remus Lupin.

    This character had a sort of goofy and clumsy disposition, and Tena admitted she embraced the character and started to love it. After her appearance in the last film of the Harry Potter sequel, she went ahead and starred as Osha in 14 episodes of another major film series with a huge audience and fan base, HBO Game of Thrones. Tena has also played in over 15 movies since then, but we mention some of the most notable and recent ones. In 2018, she starred in Origin as Lana Pierce, a lead role, and fast forward to 2020; fans saw Tena playing Raquel in I Love You Stupid.

    We won’t fail to mention how Tena and her band have been releasing music albums and other singles. She is the lead singer and accordionist of Molotov Jukebox. The band released their debut album Carnival Flower in Spring 2014, featuring their popular single “Neon Lights.” The band also went on tour in April and May 2016.

    James Potter – Adrian Rawlings

    Adrian Rawlings shares the same birthday with James Potter’s character, which he plays in the Harry Potter films. James Potter was an English pure-blood wizard who met and became best friends with Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, and Peter Pettigrew, who protected his son after his demise until it was time to go back to Hogwarts. James Potter also met Severus Snape, but they were rivals. James got and married the girl (Lily Evans) Severus wanted.

    After portraying this essential role in the storyline of Harry Potter, Adrian has been pretty busy. From TV series to films and stage plays, he has been generous to the fanbase. In 2021, we find him on the set of Grace and A Discovery of Witches series and two films released, and it’s still so early in the year. In 2020 Adrian featured in a handful of movies, including The Small Hand, Small Axe, South of the Circle (a video game), Undergods, and a list of others. One of the movies he’s also popularly known for would be the 2018 series Girlfriends.

    Albus Dumbledore – Micheal Gambon

    For most of the series, Albus Dumbledore is the headmaster of the wizarding school Hogwarts. It was also revealed that he is the founder and leader of the Order of the Phoenix.  This legend’s role was portrayed by the now 81-year old Michael John Gambon, an Irish actor of English descent.

    He started his acting career in the 1980s on stage at the Royal National Theatre. His performance on Broadway Skylight earned him a Tony Award nomination for Best Actor in a Play. Playing Albus Dumbledore is perhaps, still his notable role, although he has featured in so many other movies. A few include The Casual Vacancy in 2015, Churchill’s Secret in 2016, and Little Women in 2017. 

    Gambon became a knight in the British Empire in 1998 for his services to drama, amongst other achievements and recognitions. He has received four BAFTA TV Awards, three Olivier Awards, and the 2017 Irish Film & Television Academy Lifetime Achievement Award. Due to memory loss, he has retired from stage acting, but he hasn’t left our screens. Micheal Gambon also made the list of Irish Greatest actors.

    Molly Weasley – Julie Walters

    Julie Walters is also a knight in the British Empire. She is a multi-award-winning actress, comedian, and author. She is the recipient of four British Academy Television Awards, two British Academy Film Awards, two International Emmy Awards, a BAFTA Fellowship, and a Golden Globe. We can go on and on about Julie’s achievements which are well deserved for all her production and features in great movies.

    She played Molly Weasley in 7 of the eight films in the Harry Potter sequel. She was the matriarch of the family, and as expected, Julie brought life to this role. Since Harry Potter, she has starred in movies like Brave, Paddington and Paddington 2, Brooklyn, Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool, Poppins Returns, Sherlock Gnomes, and  Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, where she starred as Rosie.

    Most recently, we find her in roles like Marion for the 2019 movie Wild Rose and as Mrs. Medlock in the 2020 movie The Secret Garden. Julie also revealed that she had been diagnosed with bowel cancer since 2018. We are sending love and light her way as she goes through this journey.

    Parvati Patil  – Shefali Chowdhury

    Parvati Patil’s character had a twin sister (See Padma Patil up), and they were students at Hogwarts. This character was portrayed by the beautiful British actress Shefali Chowdhury. She appeared in all the Harry Potter films in the sequel except Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, where producers cast another actress (Sitara Shah) for her role. 

    After her appearance in the Harry Potter movies, we’ve only seen her in three short films. In 2015 she played Freida in I Am the Doorway. She also played in Heist: Jane and the last we’ve seen of her in a film is her appearance as the Doctor in the 2019 production Odilo Fabian. As for who Shefali is still keeping close friendship with from the cast of Harry Potter, Afshan Azad, who played her twin sister, said they were good friends.

    Minerva McGonagall – Maggie Smith

    Professor Minerva McGonagall was a fictional character in the Harry Potter series who played a professor at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. She was also the head of Gryffindor House amidst other administrative positions which she held that made her powerful.

    The veteran actress Maggie Smith portrayed this role. Maggie is a knight in the British Empire and is one of Britain’s most recognizable actresses. That shouldn’t be shocking at all since she has appeared in over 60 films and 70 plays and has made immense contributions to the performing arts and drama.

    From recognition from Queen Elizabeth to numerous awards and nominations, Tony, Golden Globe, e.t.c,  this actress has been bagging achievements since the ’90s, and she is still on a spree. The most recent movies we find her in are A Boy Called Christmas and Downtown Abbey 2, both produced in 2021.

    Gilderoy Lockhart – Kenneth Branagh

    Kenneth Branagh appeared as Gilderoy Lockhart in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets as a half-blood wizard, a Ravenclaw student. He later appeared as a famous wizarding celebrity who wrote several books on dark creatures. After the Harry Potter movies, we see Richard in so many other successful movies like My Week with Marilyn, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Cinderella (Walt Disney Studios), Murder on the Orient Express, Dunkirk, Tenet, All is True, and many others.

    Kenneth isn’t only an accomplished actor but a drama teacher as well. He trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, and in 2015 he became the president. To dive into the awards, Kenneth has won and been nominated for, we would be looking at nominations for five Academy Awards and five Golden Globe Awards. To count wins, we would find three BAFTAs and two Emmy Awards. He is also a Knight Bachelor knighted on 9 November 2012 and was listed at number 20 on the list of Ireland’s greatest film actors.

    We don’t know if Kenneth plans to travel to space or anything in the future, but we know many movies he has been cast in for 2021 and 2022. They are Belfast and Death on the Nile, respectively.

    Cornelius Fudge – Robert Hardy

    Robert Hardy left us with plenty of memories on the screen and stage as he spent a lot of time in and on both. He started his career as a classical actor, but his appearance in the BBC television series All Creatures Great and Small, Harry Potter Films where he portrayed  Cornelius Fudge and playing Winston Churchill in several productions exposed him to a wider audience. He is also carrying honors from the British Empire, and asides from acting, Hardy also published two books on medieval English longbow.

    Robert died at 91 in August 2017. Before his demise, he appeared as Old Joseph in the 2015 short film and as Donald in the 2017 movie Snapshot Wedding.

    Luna  Lovegood – Evanna Lynch

    Luna’s role was essential to helping Hermione Granger and Ron Weasly defeat the noseless villain Lord Voldemort. This role was portrayed by Evanna Lynch, an actress, and activist. Her appearance in two of the Harry Potter movies was her debut in the film industry.

    After Harry Potter, she has been starring in other movies and stage presentations like Disco Pigs, The Omission of the Family Coleman, Middle School Moguls, and Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 2020.

    More than acting, Evanna is also involved in preaching the gospel of loving our environment and saving the planet earth. She advocates for veganism and animal rights and has been involved with different nonprofit organizations for this cause. To also promote this cause, Evanna launched a vegan-themed podcast and a cruelty-free cosmetics brand called Kinder Beauty Box.

    Rubeus Hagrid – Robbie Coltrane

    Rubeus Hagrid was a wizard of exceptional size and strength- sort of a giant. He was the Groundskeeper, Gamekeeper, and Care of Magical Creatures Professor at Hogwarts School. His heart was almost as big as his size, for Rubeus was a kind and courageous man. Anthony Robert McMillan, professionally known as Robbie Coltrane, portrayed this character even though he isn’t a giant. The Harry Potter films used special tricks and effects to give him the features they wanted his portrayed character to have.

    His appearance in the Harry Potter films still tops the list of his most notable movie appearances. However, Robbie is still popular for appearing in movies like GoldenEye (1995), The World Is Not Enough (1999), From Hell (2001), Stormbreaker (2006), Brave (2012), Great Expectations (2012), and Effie(2014).

    Robert is also a highly recognized actor. He holds an Order of The British Empire Award, Best Actor Broadcasting Press Guild Award, Monte-Carlo Television Festival for Outstanding Actor in a Mini-Series.

    Horace Slughorn – Jim Broadbent

    A strange, hopelessly self-serving professor is how the guys at Sparknotes describe Horace Slughorn. He was also a foodie with a cheerful personality. Jim Broadbent portrayed this character in Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince. His role in Harry Potter isn’t his first in acting. He was already receiving BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations and winning some categories for his performances in other movies between 2001 and 2006. He was also nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards and four Screen Actors Guild Awards.

    Since 2011 we’ve seen Jim star in other movies, including Cloud Atlas (2012), Brooklyn (2015), the Paddington films (2014 and 2017), Game of Thrones (2017), Six Minutes to Midnight (2020), Dolittle (2020) and many others.

    Quirinus Quirrell – Ian Hart

    Professor Quirinus Quirrell was a half-blood wizard and the Muggle Studies professor at Hogwarts, although he later proceeded and became the Defence Against the Dark Arts professor. 56-year-old English actor Ian Hart portrayed this role. Ian has been known for a couple of other roles before he starred as Professor Quirell in two Harry Potter fantasy films. He is known for his roles as Rabbit in the miniseries One Summer (1983), Joe O’Reilly in the biopic Michael Collins (1996), and Kester Gill in the series My Mad Fat Diary (2013–2015).

    Recently, he has starred in movies like Modern Life is Rubbish (2017), Mary Queen of Scots (2018) and in the 2020 movie, Escape from Pretoria, where he played Denis Goldberg.

    Victor Krum – Stanislav Ianevski

    We’re pretty sure you wouldn’t forget the Bulgarian wizard student who took Hermoine Granger to the Yule Ball. He represented the Eastern European school of magic, Durmstrang, in the Triwizard Tournament. Stanislav Ianevski portrayed this role in the 2005 fantasy film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

    Since then, he hasn’t done much acting except his appearance in the 2015 movie Xla where he starred himself. However, Stanislav has been busy doing other things. For one, his social media has been booming with fans and good-looking pictures of him as he goes on the journey to achieve his goal of looking like a real-life Khal Drogo (First Husband of Khaleesi, the Dragon Queen in Game of Thrones). To this end, Stanislav has been growing his hair, beards, getting tattoos, building muscles, and having a nice time on luxury holidays. Pheew! This is one way to enjoy life after the Potter films.

    Vincent Crabbe – Jamie Wayleft

    Vincent Crabbe’s character was a pure-blood wizard who came from a line of Death Eaters. Jamie Wayleft portrayed this role until his last appearance in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. His role in Harry Potter was his first acting gig and still his only acting appearance on screen to date. He was found guilty of violent disorder during a protest in London Jamie, and in 2012 he was imprisoned for two years.

    Amos Diggory – Jeff Rawle

    Amos Diggory worked in the British Ministry of Magic. Specifically for the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures. He was also the father of Cedrick Diggory in the 4th film in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

    Jeff Rawle played this role, and both before and after Harry Potter, Jeff has been busy featuring in a lot of projects for both film and television. The most recent movie he made an appearance is in the series Father Brown. In 2019, he was cast as Professor Robert Wiseman in Midsomer Murders, An Adventure in Time and Space season 7. He also played Magistrate Rev. Hay in Peter Loo in 2018. 

    Shortly after Harry Potter, he was cast in Midsomer Murders, An Adventure in Time and Space, in the series Heading Out, where he played Donald in one episode amongst many other movies.

    Dudley Dursey – Harry Melling

    Muggle-born Dudley Dursey was the obese and insolent cousin of Harry Potter. Harry Melling played this character, and he shed all the weight he had carried with his identity as Dursley and was pretty happy about it. 

    When Dursey became muscular in his teens, it was hard for the producers to reprise him in the same movie since he no longer looked like himself. But with the help of innovative costumes, he wore a fat suit and pads in his cheek and ears to keep him going in this role. Losing all that weight also helped him lose any limitations that could work against his career.

    He has featured in many successful projects, including Netflix Originals. In 2014, he revealed his playwriting work, Peddling, where he was the sole and lead character. Most recently, from 2020, Harry has given us a string of quality performance and screen time. He portrayed an Evangelical priest in the thriller The Devil All The Time, plays Harry Beltik in The Queens Gambit, and Stephen Merrick in the Old Guard. All three mentioned here are Netflix movies.

    Vernon Dursley – Richard Griffiths

    Vernon Dursley was Harry Porter’s mean uncle, and Richard Griffiths creatively performed this character. He started his acting career way back into the ’80s and has won multiple awards for his film and TV appearances. He starred in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides as King George II (2011), Private Peaceful (2012), and About Time in 2013.

    Although, About Time was released post-humous due to Richard’s death. British news outlets reported his passing at the age of 65 from complications following heart surgery.


    Lord Voldemort – Ralph Fiennes

    Ralph Fiennes is incredibly handsome, so we have to thank the producers, writers, and make-up artists on set for the transformation of this fine-looking young man into a noseless villain.

    Before and after starring as Lord Voldemort, the villain everyone wanted to kill so badly, Ralph Fiennes was already doing well in the movie industry. We can’t seem to get over his role in Maid in Manhattan. In 2016 Fiennes also featured in Heathcliff and Hail, Caesar. Since 1999, he has also been serving as UNICEF UK’s ambassador.

    Sirius Black – Gary Oldman

    Gary Leonard Oldman is an English actor and filmmaker. Regarded as one of the greatest actors of his generation, he is known for his versatility and intense acting style. He has received several accolades, including an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and three British Academy Film Awards. His films have grossed over $11 billion worldwide, making him one of the highest-grossing actors to date.

    Sirius Black is a character in J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. Sirius was first mentioned briefly in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone as a wizard who lent Rubeus Hagrid a flying motorbike shortly after Lord Voldemort killed James and Lily Potter. His character becomes prominent in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. He is the titular prisoner and is also revealed to be the godfather of the central character Harry Potter. He is portrayed in the film adaptations by Gary Oldman.

    Sirius Black and James Potter attended Hogwarts together, and Sirius is Harry’s godfather. Sirius is an Animagus, which means he can transform himself into a black, shaggy dog named Padfoot at will. Years ago, Sirius was wrongly imprisoned at Azkaban for the murder of thirteen people. Following his escape, he has been forced to live in absolute secrecy.

    Neville Longbottom – Matthew Lewis

    Matthew Lewis, who starred as Neville Longbottom, did not hang on to that ‘Pottery’ fame for long. He has been overly generous to his fans with screen time and appearing in successful movies. He appeared in two movies in the Harry Potter sequel. Goblet of Fire in 2005 and Part 2 in 2011. Later on, he appears in movies like Me Before You, The Hunger Games, Ripper Street, Happy Valley, Terminal, and the ITV drama, Girlfriends.

    As for TV and appearances, in 2017, he filled in for the host (Sal Vulcano) on the US-based prank show Impractical Jokers, and most recently, he was cast in the movie Baby Done (2020) and the television series All Creatures Great and Small. Lewis has been working steadily in film and television since Harry Potter ended and married his Hearthrob Angela Jones in 2018.

    Colin Creevey – Hugh Mitchell

    Hugh Mitchell was born in September 1989 in England, and he was 13 when he landed his first professional acting job in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secret (2002), where he portrayed Colin Creevy. He is also known for his roles in Da Vinci Code, The White Queen, and Nicholas Nickleby(2002).

    Mitchell also starred himself in a behind-the-scenes documentary, The Last Weekend, in 2012. The last we see of him on the big screen is in Wallander, where he was cast as Pontus Ericsson in 2016.

     Pansy Parkinson – Scarlett Byrne

    Scarlett Byrne, now Scarlett Hannah Hefner, is a model and actress. She kicked off her acting career in 2005. Since then, her most notable roles are Pansy Parkinson, the Slytherin student in the Harry Potter series, as Nora Hildegard in Vampire Diaries 2019 as a witch in Marvel’s Runaways.

    We haven’t had much generosity with Scarlett regarding her appearance in movies and giving fans screen time. Still, we all felt the butterflies as she became engaged to Cooper Hefner, son of Hugh Hefner of Playboy fame (P.S she has also been photographed in the magazine) in 2015. In November 2019, the couple announced they had tied the knot, and in August 2020, they welcomed their daughter, Betsy Rose Hefner.

    Petunia Dursley – Fiona Shaw

    Fiona Shaw is a veteran. A commander of the Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE). This Irish actress and theatre and opera director is known for her outstanding performance in huge movies, from portraying Harry Potter’s Aunt Petunia Dursley in the Harry Potter film series to playing Marnie Stonebrook, who was a witch in the fourth season of True Blood and Carolyn Martens in Killing Eve which she stars in currently. We can’t have enough of Fiona.

    For her performance in Killing Eve, she won the 2019 BAFTA TV Award for Best Supporting Actress. We also enjoyed seeing Fiona in the 2020 crime drama, Enola Holmes. As for coming plans on the big screen, Fiona Shaw has been cast for the 2022 movie Andor.

    Ron Weasley – Rupert Grint

    Rupert Grint acting as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was his film debut, and he went on to reprise that role in all of the eight movies in the series. 

    That was the beginning, and since then, he has featured in a bunch of other films, television, and stage acting roles. He’s currently starring in the Apple TV series servant. As the film adaptation of J.K Rowlings -The Cursed Child is in production, fans hope Rupert will reprise his role as Ron Weasley.

    Professor Flitwick – Warwick Davis

    Warwick Davis was the only one who played three different characters in all eight Harry Potter movies. From the original casting as an elderly-looking professor Flitwick who is a charms teacher to the youthful look he wore afterwards, to Griphook, which is the final character he portrayed.

    We like to think of Warwick as an all-around entertainer.  He is an actor, tv presenter, writer, director, producer, and comedian. When Warwick isn’t playing Professor Flitwick or Griphook, He’s featuring in other huge movies like Willow and the Star Wars film series. In 2014, he was also the host of the ITV Celebrity Squares game shows, and he currently hosts Tenable.

    Lucius Malfoy – Jason Isaacs

    Lucius Malfoy was the son of Abraxas Malfoy and the father of Draco Malfoy. He is a British pure-blood wizard. During his time at Hogwarts, he was made a prefect in Slytherin House.

    This character was portrayed by Jason Isaacs, an English actor born in June 1963. His role in Harry Potter was one of the most prominent ones, but he is also known for his appearances in Star Trek (2017-18), Star Wars, Avatar: The Last Airbender (2005), a role he reprised in the second season of The Legend of Korra (2013).

    Most recently, we find Jason’s voice in movies like Scooby-Doo! The Sword and the Scoob(2021) see him acting in Nick Reynolds Mindset(2021). Ultimately, Jason never stopped giving us quality screen time.

    Cedric Diggory – Robert Pattinson

    Cedric is one of the main characters in the film adaptation of the book – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and we loved the screen time he gave us. Cedric sacrificed himself to save Harry, the titular character, and allowed him to warn others about Voldemort’s resurrection.

    This selfless and heroic character was played by no other than Robert Pattinson, our favorite Twilight star. Although his role as Cedric was his first step into the big screen, his performance was well enough to get him roles in big-budget and independent films after Harry Potter. He has many titles and achievements to his name, from making the list of the world’s highest-paid actors to being featured in the Forbes Celebrity 100 list. We know for sure that Pattison has been securing the bag.

    Dean Thomas – Alfred Enoch

    In seven of the eight Harry Potter films, Dean Thomas appeared as a half-blood wizard who had to struggle with the uncertainties behind his identity. He also voiced the character in the Harry Potter video games.

    Alfred Enoch portrayed this character, and we still consider it one of his most notable roles. Another role he is best known for after Harry Potter is playing Wes Gibbins on ABC’s television series ‘How to Get Away with Murder in 2014 and returned for two more episodes in the sixth season in 2020.

    In 2016, Enoch also played on stage as Edgar/Poor Tom in the well-received Talawa Theatre Company and Manchester Royal Exchange co-production of King Lear. He received many accolades for his role in this play.

    Alfred also said Yes! to bringing another book to life in 2020 as he was cast in the virtual production of What A Carve Up!, based on the novel. He played roles in movies like Troy: Fall of a City (2018), Trust Me (2019), and Foundation (2021).
