It is now almost 15 years since The Philosopher’s Stone hit our cinema screens and it is safe to say the cast of Harry Potter are now well and truly all grown up.

After Warner Bros brought J K Rowling’s vision to life back in 2001 the world went mad for the magical madness and we have been hooked ever since.

For the majority of us, we have grown up with Harry, Ron and Hermione so, their ageing has been somewhat over looked.

However, it is only when you place the young first-year wizard next to a bearded Daniel Radcliffe that you realise just how much time has passed since we were first introduced to this magical phenomenon.

Here are some of the films most memorable faces then and now. Prepare yourselves, some characters have experienced a dramatic transformation since their early wizard and witchcraft days.
