The Cast of Harry Potter — Then & Now

Regardless of generation, the magical adventures of Harry Potter and his friends have entranced movie goers and book readers alike. From major figures in British media to pre-teen unknown actors, its cast has been shot to global stardom. Where are the careers of Harry Potter’s most famous faces now, away from the magical halls of Hogwarts?

Then: Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley

Harry’s courage and Hermione’s skill seem to leave little room for less practical skills, yet Ron Weasley is undoubtedly the glue that holds this golden trio together. The famous redhead has proved his loyalty to his friends time and time again, but has been fascinatingly shown to be filled with self-doubt. Knowing that his bravery or magical prowess might be lacking compared to his best friends, Ron can explode or brood in anger — but he always finds a way back to them.

At the end of the day, Ron is able to work through and set aside inner turmoil for the sake of those he loves — Hermione, in particular. He is more approachable than either Harry or Hermione — in a world teetering on the brink of war, where magic can commit unspeakable crimes, Ron is the type of person the Wizarding community needs more than ever.
