Get ready to feel old, you guys, because Tuesday, September 22 is Tom Felton‘s 33rd birthday. The actor was only 14 when he first starred in Harry Potter, which means it has been almost 19 years since the first magical movie came out! That’s right, almost two decades have passed since the flick hit theaters, and we cannot believe how fast time has flown by!
Over the years, the cast has certainly changed a lot. It feels like just yesterday that we were watching Felton, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson on our screens, so the fact that they’re all grown up and full-fledged adults now is seriously blowing our minds. But wait, what are they all up to these days, you ask? Some went on to launch major careers and land a bunch more roles in movies and TV shows, while others stepped out of the spotlight to focus on their personal lives, but either way, they’ve all come such a long way. Get this — one of them even recently became a parent!
In honor of Felton’s birthday, we decided to check in on them all. Here’s what they entire cast of Harry Potter is doing now…
