HP’s girlfriend-turned-wife is doing just fine for herself! After Potter ended, she graduated from the University of the Arts: London College of Communication, which she began studying at while filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, with a degree in Film and Television Production Management. She made her screenwriting and directorial debut with the film Separate We Come, Separate We Go (featuring fellow Potter co-star David Thewlis). She is the owner of the production company Bon Bon Lumiere. Her films Those Who Wonder and Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg are set to release in 2015 and she’s currently filming The Highway For Gamblers.

James and Oliver Phelps have yet to hang up their wizarding robes. Of the entire Potter crew, they’re the most active in the wizarding world, attending pretty much every Potter-related event, either at conventions, the WWoHP, and were very involved with Harry Potter The Exhibition. In 2012, the twins starred in The Mind’s Eye, a short documentary based on the philosophical ideas of Plato. Nowadays, both guys have stopped dying their hair and go with their natural brown, reside in Santa Monica, CA (with frequent visits back home), and hang out with their Potter co-stars Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, and Matthew Lewis whenever they’re busy schedules permit. They will both appear in Own Worst Enemy, but James will also venture into some more acting on his own, having a guest appearance in Silent Witness and is rumored to be in the film Jabberwocky Rise.

Percy Weasley isn’t up to too much, then again do you need to do much after you’ve been in a Harry Potter movie? Rankin is the co-founder of a theatre company Painted Horse UK and he’s appeared in variety of roles in pantomimes across the UK, such as Edgar Linton in Wuthering Heights, Eilert Loevborg in Hedda Gabler and Young Syrian in Salomé. He currently works as production coordinator on Atlantis and will appear in a small role for the film Gracie.

Neville Longbottom is here to prove that puberty is a real and beautiful thing. Now that we have no more Harry Potter films coming (why God, WHY) Matthew Lewis is busy making people fall in love with him. He’s adorably endearing on Twitter. But actually, he does more than just look good 24/7, he’s currently on the BBC Three comedy-drama Bluestone 42. In 2016, he will appear in the film The Brontes as the brother of Bronte sisters: Charlotte, Emily, and Anne.

Draco Malfoy may have been Harry Potter's arch-nemesis, but it was recently revealed that he (Tom, that is) actually belonged in Gryffindor! Since Potter ended in 2011, he's kept busy and gotten very cosy with his beautiful girlfriend Jade Gordon (Draco's wife Astoria Malfoy in HP:DH2). His film Against The Sun is set for release in 2015, he's on the show Murder In The First, and just recently wrapped on filming Clavius. Tom is still very close with his potter roots, attending fan conventions and celebrations at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the WB Studio at Leavensden fairly often!

As you may or may not know, Jamie got in a spot of legal trouble back in 2009 that kept him from appearing in that Room of Requirement scene in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. In 2009, he was caught growing marijuana in his mother’s London home. He was ordered to spend six weeks in young offender’s institution. In 2011 he was arrested again, as he’d been involved in the London riots and was seen holding a petrol bomb. He wasn’t charged with this, but did plead guilty, in March of 2012, to drinking stolen champagne, and was sentenced to two years in prison for “violent disorder.” He has since been released from prison but is staying on the down-low, for some obvious reasons.

After graduating from Hogwarts (or promptly getting run out after all that bad behavior Goyle got up to) Herdman went on with his post-Potter life and had a baby, with his partner Jessica. In 2013 he was in the film Common People and had a small guest spot on the TV series Coming Up. He got his first ever stage role in 2014. In 2015, you can expect to see him in the film Wasted with his father, actor Martin Herdman.

Since his days as Seamus Finnigan, Murray hasn’t done anything acting wise. While we’re not able to watch him in any new films or on TV, we can certainly follow him on Twitter and enjoy his relatable tweets about binge-watching shows on Netflix. Though he’s not acting much, he’s still active in the Potter world, like many of his co-stars, and fondly refers to himself as “The Silly Irish Guy Who Kept Blowing Himself Up.”

Do you watch How To Get Away With Murder? If so, you’ve probably been wondering all season where you’ve seen this guy before! That’s right, Dean Thomas has really grown into himself! Alfred, or Alfie as we like to call him, has done alright for himself since Potter ended in 2011. He’s had guest appearances on the popular shows Broadchuch and Sherlock, was Titus/Philotus on the TV series National Theater Live, and now is on ABC’s biggest new show.

Fans of the HP series were probably as upset as we were when the Weasley twins’ BFF Lee Jordan disappeared after Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Since 2002, Luke Youngblood has kept himself busy and looks a lot different than that young boy with the dreads. Right away, he appeared on the show The Story of Tracey Beaker from 2002-2003, then had some guest appearances on shows like Glee and Lie To Me. He had a small supporting role on Community from 2011-2014 and now he’s on the ABC musical comedy series Galavant.

Oliver Wood made his way back to school for The Battle of Hogwarts, but Sean Biggerstaff kept busy between his times at Hogwarts (since he disappeared after Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets). He starred in the short film Cashback, Hippie Hippe Shake, and Mary Queen of Scots. In 2015, he’s featured in another short film, Enora, and it was just announced that he will star in Hector & Himself as Hector.

Cho Chang was one of the very few Ravenclaw students actually shown in the films and that’s only because she was Harry Potter’s first love interest. She’s been doing well for herself since last appearing in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, attending school at University of Arts London and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow. In 2011 she made her stage debut in Jung Chang’s Wild Swans. In 2013 and 2014, she appeared in the TV miniseries Run and Father Brown. In 2014 it was announced she would star in the series One Child, which has begun production.

This needs to be said, Evanna Lynch is Luna Lovegood. She helped create numerous fashion accessories while working in the Harry Potter series. Since Potter ended, she’s proven how adorable she is and shown off her love of cats like crazy on her Instagram. Throughout her career, she’s been an advocate of positive body image, having struggled with anorexia early in her life. She starred in the indie teen comedy G.B.F.. In 2015, you can see her in My Name is Emily and Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale.

Afshan Azad is busy being Kim Kardashian’s TWIN, not really but that resemblance is strikingly on point. However, acting wise, she has only appeared in the Harry Potter series from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire through Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. She is currently considering starting a YouTube channel to highlight makeup and hair tutorials.

In case you thought the Patil twins were twins in real life, this is not the case. Like her acting twin Afshan Azad, Shefali hasn’t done much since Potter ended. In 2014 she was in the film I Am The Doorway as Frieda.

Cedric Diggory died and became a vampire. Everyone knows what happened to Robert Pattinson after his ill-fated days as this handsome Hufflepuff. He was cast as the mysterious, brooding lead vampire in The Twilight Saga and stole all our hearts over and over again. But even Twilight has since ended. Over time, Robert has done several films to try and break out of his teen-idol typecast, such as starring opposite Reese Witherspoon in Water For Elephants (2011), Cosmopolis (2012), Bel Ami (2012), and other questionable films. In 2015, he’ll appear in the film Life as a photographer for Life magazine that shoots pictures of James Dean. He is in production for the films The Lost City of Z and The Childhood of a Leader.

He’s been in Pitch Perfect, After Dark with Potter co-star Bonnie Wright, and The Inbetweeners 2. He showcased his talents by singing in A Cinderella Story: Once Upon A Song and appeared on the TV show Un-Real.

So Lavender Brown might not have been anyone’s favorite character, but Jessie Cave has been taking care of herself. She runs the website pindippy.com, where she has many of her own creations and videos starring herself, as well as other Potter stars, like Evanna Lynch, Katie Leung, and Alfred Enoch.
