11 Grown-Up Actors Who We’ll Always Remember as Children

Time flies. Not only have the main characters from the Harry Potter movies grown up, but even the actors who played their children are no longer little. The actors from Spy Kids have also become adults along with their predecessors from Spy Kids 4. In fact, many other characters who we got used to seeing as children have become unrecognizable over the years.

At Bright Side, we’re sincerely surprised to see how these 11 children have changed.

1. Ellie Darcey-Alden and Benedict Clarke, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2

These actors played the parts of young Lily Evans and Severus Snape. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 was released in 2011. At that time, Ellie was 12 and Benedict was 14. Today, they’re 21 and 23 years old. This photo is convincing enough to say that Lily and Severus were a gorgeous couple.

6. Bradley Steven Perry, Good Luck Charlie

When the actor was 12, he was cast in a part that became the most prominent of his acting career. He played the main character, Gabe Duncan, in the Good Luck Charlie TV series. Currently, this smart boy is 22.
