Seven years of Hogwarts is plenty of time for someone to grow into a completely different, sometimes unreconigzable person - even more so when the films took a whole ten years to produce!

If you haven't seen what Dudley Dursley looks like today, click here NOW!

We all know what Radcliffe, Watson and Grint look like nowadays, but what about the other lesser known wizards? Let's take a look at Harry Potter's minor side characters, then and now!

First, you have to remind yourself of just how young they all seemed all the way back in first year:

Wow, that really brings me back! I can't believe how much both me and the Potter gang have come since 2001... And what about these guys?!

Dean Thomas played by Alfred Enoch

Age then: 11

Age now: 26

Though a relatively minor character, the half-blood Gryffindor student appeared in all but one of the movies - Deathly Hallows Part 1.

Enoch has gone on to have a pretty successful acting career since graduating the school of wizardry, appearing in an episode of Sherlock opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, and more recently in ABC's legal drama, How to Get Away with Murder.

Hannah Abbott played by Charlotte Skeoch

Age then: 10

Age now: 25

Half-blood Hufflepuff Hannah Abbott would go on to marry the unlikely hero of Gryffindor, Neville Longbottom, eventually becoming the landlady of the Leaky Cauldron.

Actress Charlotte Skeoch has followed in the academic footsteps of her fictional husband, teaching English to high school students.

Seamus Finnigan played by Devon Murray

Age then: 11

Age now: 26

The Irish troublemaker from Gryffindor showed a penchant for blowing things up in class.

Funnily enough, the actor who played him was apparently just as clumsy, breaking a record ten prop wands while filming the movies! Devon Murray hasn't appeared in anything since Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Luna Lovegood played by Evanna Lynch

Age then: 14

Age now: 23

Serial eccentric Luna lovegood brought a refreshing wackiness to the series I thought was great, but what's more bizarre than her character is seeing her all grown up!

Model Evanna Lynch continues to pursue her acting career, while also appearing in photo shoots for various magazines.

Lee Jordon played by Luke Youngblood

Age then: 10

Age now: 25

You'll likely remember good old Lee Jordon from his famously excitable Quidditch commentary, though he looks quite a lot different nowadays!

Actor Luke Youngblood also had a role in Glee, and can currently be seen on ABC's musical comedy series, Galavant.

Fleur Delacour played by Clémence Poésy

Age then: 22

Age now: 32

Beauxbatons' champion was played by the incredibly stunning Clémence Poésy. The French actress and fashion model has also appeared in Danny Boyle's 127 Hours, as well as In Bruges, where she starred opposite the dark lord himself, Ralph Fiennes.

Young Voldemort Played by Christian Coulson

Age then: 22

Age now: 36

Coulson enjoyed a brief spell with the series, portraying a young Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Though he's now grown into a fully-fledged man, I'm glad he hasn't taken on Voldemort's less than desirable physical traits - his nose looks much better without slits!

Coulson has since appeared on CBS' The Good Wife.
