It’s been 12 years since the release of the last film in the iconic Harry Potter saga: here’s what they’ve become and what the actors are doing now.
It was 2001 when he first came to the cinema. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. The first chapter of what could have been one of the most beloved and successful fantasy sagas in the history of cinema. The story of the most famous wizard of cinema, which came out from under the pen of the writer J.K. Rowling, made millions of people love it around the world. And he’s still there today fan base operates throughout the planet Earth.
The last film of the saga, or the second part “Deathly Hallows“, was released in 2011, ending a 10-year film franchise. Huge amount of time for viewers to follow natural growth actors, especially the three main characters who started when they were still children and finished as adults. After the success of Harry Potter, many continued their careers, others stopped. How are they now?
The most famous trinity of fantasy cinema – this is how they have become now
Let’s start with the main characters, or the trinity of little wizards who, throughout the saga, faced various vicissitudes of fate: Harry Potter, Ron Weasley And Hermione Granger.
The three main characters were played respectively Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint And Emma Watson. Who went their separate ways after the end of the saga. Who has always been in the world of cinema, who instead devoted himself more to television or even music.
Daniel Radcliffe (aged 34) continued his career in the film world, appearing in several independent films, but also moderately successful. How Woman in black (2011) Young rebels – Kill your loved ones (2013) e Now you see me 2 (2016). Emma Watson (33 years old) devoted herself to film and television. His most memorable roles are in We are endless 2012 and Belle in a live action movie The beauty and the Beast 2017.
Rupert Grint (age 34) did not have the same cinematic success as the other two co-stars, but still received high praise for the series Servants aired from 2019 to 2023.
Although, on the one hand, the three main characters of the saga began their activities at the age of 11/12, the cast also included several older actors who, unfortunately, have recently left us. One of my favorites is definitely Alan Rickman, an image of the gruff Professor Severus Snape, who passed away in 2016. at the age of 70 years.
In addition to him, they also died Robbie Coltranewho played lovers of Hagrid and Richard Griffiths, Uncle Vernon’s interpreter. And Richard Harris, the actor who played Albus Dumbledore in the first two films of the saga, and Sir John Hurt, Ollivander’s translator. Finally, unfortunately, the world also had to say goodbye. Helen McCrorywho played Narcissa Malfoy, Draco’s mother.
