As the one and only Harry Potter, Radcliffe has done a great job moving beyond his iconic character. He bared it all (yes, all) on stage in the Broadway play Equus. He has also appeared in another Broadway show, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, which in no way relates to his ethics in show business.
Radcliffe has also appeared on the big screen. His credits include The Woman in Black and Swiss Army Man, showing us he could play someone other than Harry.
After the Harry Potter films, Watson starred in the emotional coming-of-age film The Perks of Being a Wallflower, as well as other hits including The Bling Ring and This Is the End.
What isn't Emma Watson doing? She also appeared in Noah with Russell Crowe and has worked as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, and starred as Belle in Disney's megahit live-action film Beauty and the Beast.
Everyone's favorite redheaded Hogwarts graduate, Grint has starred in a variety of indie films. Those include Cherrybomb, which was released in the midst of the final three Harry Potter releases, and Wild Target, which also starred Emily Blunt.
Following in Radcliffe's footsteps, Grint made his Broadway debut alongside Matthew Broderick and a host of other big names in Terrence McNally's It's Only a Play. He currently stars on the television shows Snatch and Sick Note.
This guy is one busy Slytherin! Since Harry Potter, Felton has starred in several other projects, including another box-office hit, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, just after the Harry Potter films wrapped, as well as the TNT series Murder in the First.
Felton's characters have varied from the stinker Draco Malfoy to the victim in the sexy, suspenseful In Secret. He now stars in a new YouTube original sci-fi series Origin. He joined the CW series The Flash back in 2016 as Julian Albert, but didn't return for the show's fourth season.
Before she was kooky Professor Trelawney, Thompson won two Oscars: Best Actress for Howards End and Best Adapted Screenplay for Sense and Sensibility, in which she also played Elinor. One of her other fan-favorite roles is, of course, Love Actually.
Thompson played author P.L. Travers in Saving Mr. Banks and Mrs. Potts in the live-action adaptation of Disney's Beauty and the Beast with her HP bud Emma Watson. Up next, she has plans to reprise her Agent O role in the Men in Black reboot.
Ginny Weasley has been so busy. Since Harry Potter, Wright played literary icon Agatha Christie in Agatha Christie: A Life in Pictures and was also seen in Those Who Wander and Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg?
On top of all of this, Wright also steadily pursues a career in modeling and directing. Oh, and she now owns her own production company and stars in some of the company's films. Again: She's been very, very busy.
Back in the day, Enoch was Dean Thomas, another cute little half-wizard like Harry Potter.
Little Dean Thomas graduated from Hogwarts to law school as Wes Gibson on the Shondaland hit How to Get Away with Murder. His character was killed off in Season 3, but with the show's constant flashbacks, he shows up now and then. He also appears in Netflix's Troy: Fall of a City.
Lynch starred in a Harry Potter television special called A Potter Senior Year once the films wrapped. She's also starred in the movie G.B.F., a short film titled It Don't Come Easy, and a handful of television shows.
Lynch has also starred in more films: Dynamite: A Cautionary Tale alongside Carol Kane, and My Name Is Emily, in which she landed the titular role.
To the younger generation, Smith will always be Professor McGonagall. But Smith is a treasured acting great (and a dame!), and is one of only 18 thespians to have won the Triple Crown of Acting (Oscar, Emmy and Tony).
Smith played the Dowager Countess on Downton Abbey and reprised her role as Muriel Donnelly in 2015's The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, the sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
OK, so Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire may not be the main reason Robert Pattinson is famous, but you still want to know what he's up to, right?
Pattinson continues his work on the big screen in films like Queen of the Desert and Life. He co-stars with Mia Goth in the upcoming sci-fi film High Life. And, of course, there's the Twilight franchise.
Leung took some time away from acting after the Harry Potter films to decide if a career in show business was really what she wanted.
Leung eventually took the starring role in Jung Chang's play Wild Swans. She has also appeared on the BBC shows Father Brown and One Child. Her most recent role is on the big screen alongside Jackie Chan in The Foreigner.
Awkward yet super adorable, Lewis was endearing as could be as Neville Longbottom.
Neville Longbottom grew up and got hot. Lewis made major waves when he posed in his undies in Attitude Magazine, showing off his grown-up magical body. He appeared in the 2016 film Me Before You and the BBC series Ripper Street. The star married Angela Jones in 2018.
Sir Michael Gambon took over the role of Dumbledore after Richard Harris' death following Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Gambon has since returned to the stage, performing in All That Fall in London and to a sold-out crowd in New York. He recently appeared as Arthur in the film Kingsman: The Golden Circle in 2017.
Ralph Fiennes had an incredible career before Harry Potter, earning Oscar nominations for Schindler's List and The English Patient, and kept the trend going after the movies were filmed.
Fiennes starred in the award-winning Wes Anderson film The Grand Budapest Hotel and has lent his voice to characters in both Kubo and the Two Strings and The LEGO Batman Movie.
Oldman has played a slew of iconic characters, from Sid Vicious all the way to the one and only Sirius Black.
Oldman played Commissioner Gordon, everyone's favorite man in uniform (unless you count the Batsuit as a uniform), in The Dark Knight film trilogy. He also appeared in 2014's RoboCop and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. At the 2018 Oscars, he won Best Actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.
Before Harry Potter, Bonham Carter earned an Oscar nomination for Breaking the Waves and was best known for playing Marla Singer in the cult hit Fight Club.
A mainstay in her former partner Tim Burton's films, Bonham Carter appeared with her late Harry Potter co-star Alan Rickman in the sequel to 2010's Alice in Wonderland, Alice Through the Looking Glass. She stars as Rose in Ocean's Eight, a female-led spinoff of the Ocean's trilogy. She'll also star as Princess Margaret in new seasons of Netflix's Emmy-nominated drama The Crown.
Coltrane played the lovable Hagrid in the Harry Potter films and stole the hearts of kids and animals worldwide.
Since Harry Potter, Coltrane has been doing voice work, playing Lord Dingwall in Disney's animated movie Brave. He appeared on the British TV drama National Treasure in 2016.
As Severus Snape, Rickman sort of creeped us (and the kids at Hogwarts) out. We quickly learned that he always meant well.
Sadly, Alan Rickman passed away in January 2016. His final films were Eye in the Sky and Alice Through the Looking Glass.
Bradley must have loved the feel of a box-office smash, because he went on to appear in Captain America: The First Avenger right after the last Harry Potter film.
Bradley has also scored parts on popular television shows, including Game of Thrones, The Strain and Doctor Who.
Confusing their mother and pestering their siblings were two steps in an average day for wizarding twins Fred and George Weasley.
The Phelps twins went on to star in a 2014 movie, Own Worst Enemy, in which they play (you guessed it) twins.
