It might be hard to believe, but ten years ago we were introduced to the fourth installment of the Harry Potter movies with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. That's right, an entire decade has passed since I was a 13-year-old girl sitting in that midnight showing, gawking at a shirtless . Time flies when you're having fun, I guess.

Although much of the cast of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire hasn't been far from our radar, it's still fun to look back, reminisce, and see how much they've changed in the last ten years. Here's what the younger cast of Goblet of Fire look like today compared to their teenage selves:

Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter

Fun fact: In filming the second task of the Triwizard Tournament, Daniel Radcliffe alone logged an estimated 41 hours 38 minutes underwater. He also suffered two ear infections from spending so much time in the water.

Emma Watson, Hermione Granger

Fun fact: In one of the earlier takes of Hermione's Yule Ball entrance, reportedly tripped in the gown and took a tumble down the stairs.

Rupert Grint, Ron Weasley

Fun fact: In his audition for Ron Weasley, performed self-written hip-hop lyrics to impress the casting directors and set his tape apart.

Matthew Lewis, Neville Longbottom

Fun fact: Matthew Lewis' favorite prop from the Harry Potter series is, understandably, the Sword of Godric Gryffindor. Shockingly, his Mimbulus Mimbletonia doesn't come up a lot in conversation.

Tom Felton, Draco Malfoy

Fun fact: Tom Felton's natural hair color is a much darker blond than Draco's platinum mop of hair. Throughout the series he had to wear wigs and dye his hair around 18 times to get that classic Malfoy look.

Robert Pattinson, Cedric Diggory

Fun fact: Despite being killed at the end of the film, Robert Pattinson has stated that he would rather play Cedric Diggory again than Twilight's Edward Cullen.

Clémence Poésy, Fleur Delacour

Fun fact: Although Clémence Poésy is French and speaks the language fluently, she speaks English with a British accent. She therefore had to put on a thicker French accent to play Fleur Delacour in the movies.

Stanislav Ianevski, Viktor Krum

Fun fact: Viktor Krum only has two lines in the entirety of Goblet of Fire, totaling 20 words. He also appeared in an unreleased scene from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One, in which he dances with Hermione, much to Ron Weasley's distain.

From adorable teens to adult heartthrobs, the cast of Harry Potter has certainly aged well! And they didn't even need the Weasley twin's aging potion to get the job done.
