It’s been almost two decades since the young trio of Harry, Ron and Hermione first came to our screens. Regaling an entire generation, the Harry Potter cast made permanent places in our hearts. What are these actors doing now? Let’s find out.
It won’t be wrong if we say that Harry Potter movies shaped a generation. We grew up with the seven Harry Potter books and then the eight movies through that decade, and we dreamt about wands, Hogwarts, and Hermione (of course). Even though it’s been years after the release of the final movie, we feel like we still are part of the phenomenon that Harry Potter is. Let’s find out where the cast of Harry Potter is in 2020.
- Where’s Harry Potter and the cast as of 2020?
- Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.
- Robert Pattinson, Tom Felton, and Evanna Lynch.
The Harry Potter film series, based on the eponymous novels by author J. K. Rowling, debuted in 2001 with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. With seven movies following it throughout the decade, the series ended in 2011 with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. Since then, the cast has moved on to other projects. Even though the Harry Potter universe was revived in the form of the Fantastic Beasts series, yet we miss our childhood wizard friends.
Where’s Daniel Radcliffe now?
Daniel Radcliffe played the legendary Harry Potter, and even in 2020, we see the wizard in him. Radcliffe played Harry in all the eight movies. He grew up with the series and became the highest-paid actor in the world during that period.

He stared in The Woman in Black, Kill Your Darlings, Victor Frankenstein, Jungle, and a bunch of other movies throughout the years.
