25 students of Hogwarts who’ve changed as if by magic

It seems like it was only yesterday that these guys were learning spells and playing quidditch at that famous school of witchcraft and wizardry. But in reality, our favorite Hogwarts students have all grown up now. Some continued to star in movies, some went into business, and one is now a wrestler.

We at Bright Side decided to find out what became of all those child stars who once played the students in the Harry Potter movies. The results may surprise you!
