'Girl Ages By Ten Years Over Ten Year Period' is not much of a headline, but it's still super interesting to check out what actors we knew and loved as kids are getting up to now.

Particularly in the case of the cast of Harry Potter: we saw these kids in their school days, and this magical world is one with some of the most committed fans in the world.

Take, for example, Cho Chang - the sociable, intelligent Ravenclaw girl who caught the eye of both Harry Potter and Cedric Diggory - or as she's known in the Muggle world, Scottish actress Katie Leung. Take a look at Katie then and now!

Born in 1987, Katie Leung was only 17 when she captured the heart of The Boy Who Lived. Now she's 27 and any Potter fan will enjoy a scroll through her Instagram - a stream of photos of a happy, successful young woman fully engaged with life's opportunities.

Katie's been working on a string of interesting TV shows such as Father Brown and One Child, as well as acting alongside BAFTA and Sundance award winner Olivia Colman in gritty British drama Run.

Random Fact: Katie Leung also starred in Hong Kong pop star Leo Ku's video for his single, 'Love Coming Home.' Check it out!

She's got a conscience too - here's Katie raising money and awareness to combat the neurodegenerative disease ALS with the ice bucket challenge.

As Potter fans, we wish all of the Hogwarts crew all the happiness and success in their post-Potter careers. Check out what other Potter actors - such as Ron Weasley, Lavender Brown and Padma Patil - have been up to since Hogwarts.
