All of us go back to our childhood days whenever we hear about Harry Potter, or the cast and crew of the eight incredible movies for that matter! Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Draco Malfoy, Robert Pattinson and others might have moved on with their lives in these 19 years, but the Potterheads are where they had left them, and we are glad that the movies brought such happiness whenever we would tune into them.
As there have been rumours about the cast returning for a reunion, none of it has been confirmed by the lead actors, and we don’t know if that’s ever going to happen (unless JK Rowling sends her owl with good news!). We can only remember the past memories and we wish for them to succeed in their careers. Several cast members have remained in Hollywood, while others have made bold moves to leave the movies. As Potterheads might be intrigued to know what exactly are the cast members doing 19 years later, here’s all that we know:
Daniel Radcliffe aka Harry Potter
The adorable Radcliffe who was just 12 years old when he had filmed the first movie under the franchise, has played many notable characters since then! Radcliffe remained firmly in movies but he also worked in horror films Kill Your Darlings (2013), The Woman In Black (2012) and the charming romcom What If (2013). Radcliffe has also been a part of theatre and has made a remarkable mark on OTT platforms.
Emma Watson aka Hermione Granger
The intelligent and charming Granger didn’t stay long in movies, and has been involved more in humanitarian work, but even during her brief time being an actress, Emma Watson has taken some notable characters under her wings!
As the 90s kids know her as Hermione Granger, the kids born after 2010 would know her as Belle, as Watson went ahead to star in Beauty and the Beast (2017). She was also one the March sisters in Little Women (2019).
Rupert Grint aka Ronald Weasley
We hope Arthur Weasly isn’t being questioned at the Ministry of Magic much, as his son definitely seems to have made a mark in the ‘muggle’ world! Grunt featured in Ed Sheeran’s Lego House music video (redheads assemble!) Soon after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 came out, Grunt appeared in Ed Sheeran’s Lego House music video.
Grint has worked in major OTT projects including Netflix’s Sick Note, and Apple TV Plus’ Servant. Grint is also the father to Wednesday G. Grint.
Tom Felton aka Draco Malfoy
This man keeps his fans updated about himself and never lets wonder about his whereabouts! The only thing that fans can talk about after Harry Potter is his undeniable relationship with Emma Watson. They have shared many snaps and videos together. Work wise, Felton went on to star in TNT’s Murder in the First, The CW’s the Flash, and recently, he starred in A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting, and The Forgotten Battle.
Felton is a very active social media user and shares his song covers with fans.
Robert Pattinson aka Cedric Diggory
He needs absolutely no introduction and therefore, we’ll get straight to the point. Our Edward Cullen was in The Twilight Saga. He went on to work alongside Christopher Nolan in Tenet! Pattinson also made a significant impact on the film industry, with Remember Me, Water for Elephants and The Lost City of Z. He also created Good Time and High Life.
The cast seems too happy in their lives and we are glad for them! Which was your favorite character from the films? Pinkvilla invites you to share your favorites with us in the comments section.
