17 years later: what the actors of "Harry Potter" are doing nowDaniel Radcliffe — Harry Potter

Somewhere in the middle of the Potteriana, Radcliffe became one of the most notable British actors. But, by the way, in order to stand out in this company, you need to bypass the most high-class colleagues. Only seven years have passed since the end of "Harry Potter", and he already has a voluminous list of starring roles in films, and one is more surprising and unexpected than the other.

The role in the film "Victor Frankenstein" is quite an ordinary thriller, but in the film "The Swiss Knife Man" Daniel enthusiastically plays the role of a corpse. In "Illusion of Deception 2" he is a billionaire, in "Jungle" he is an extremely tenacious traveler. He also has a theatrical role — Rosencrantz in the play "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead".

A young, beautiful and intelligent actress is actively acting in films, while giving preference to difficult roles and avoiding films for the mass audience. Willingly gives interviews and talks about women's rights. In general, I did not let Hermione down. Now she has a wonderful job in the film "It's good to be quiet", the roles of brave girls going against the system in "Colonia Dignidad" and in "Sphere", as well as the wonderful image of Belle in "Beauty and the Beast".

Grint admits that he chooses roles that will help him get away from his image in Potter. He played the guitarist of The Dead Boys in the film about the New York punk scene "CBGB Club", a God-fearing teenager running away with an adult actress to a theater festival in "Driving Lessons", a student of a professional killer in "Wild Thing". He shows a clear penchant for comedic roles, as in "Moon Scam" and the TV series "Due to Illness" and "Big Jackpot". And Rupert dreams of playing a villain. By the way, as a child he really liked the role of Draco Malfoy.

Awfully nice young man: he grew up in rural areas, was fond of fishing, sentimental, posts on Facebook like "merry Christmas to all who believe in love" and admits that he is reviewing the "Diary of Memory". Not a bit worried about the role of the nasty Draco Malfoy, loves genre movies. In January 2018, the premiere of the film "Ophelia" took place at the Sundance Film Festival, where Tom played Laertes, the brother of the main character. However, Felton devotes most of his time to music: he releases albums and travels the world with small concerts.

The clumsy boy has grown up to become a handsome man, but it seems, like most Potteriana children, Matthew is haunted by an old role. He keeps trying to get rid of the image of an ugly boy and often appears in various photo shoots with a naked torso. He works mainly in the theater, as Alan Rickman advised him at the time, but he does not mind acting in Bond. However, while in the cinema he gets small roles.

Robert became famous for his role as a vampire in Twilight, and only then did the public remember that he had previously played the handsome and brave Cedric Diggory, who dramatically dies during the competition in the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. His current work in cinema does not bring him the same fame, but nevertheless they are worthy of attention: "Dear Friend", "The Lost City of Z", "Life", "Good Time". Excellent dramatic roles.

These are fans of the magical world who do charity work — for example, collect books for a school library in Uganda. She continues to occasionally appear in films, but she does not get any notable roles.

Not having a spectacular appearance, Robbie Coltrane, even at the peak of his career, starred mainly in television projects and shows. He was always a comedian, and even the role of Hagrid was comic.

The last role was in the mini—series "Treasure of the Nation" about a former comedian who found himself in the center of a sex scandal.

Jason, even before "Potter" was recognized as an excellent performer of villainous roles, now works mainly for TV projects. In a couple of TV series, he played the main roles: "Awakening" and "Excavation". The show had interesting concepts, but they didn't last more than one season. Now Jason is involved in the series "Star Trek: Discovery" in the role of Captain Lorca. And in the cinema, the most notable appearance was the comedy "The Death of Stalin", where Isaacs played Marshal Zhukov.

Even cooler, of course, is old Maggie Smith, who is already 83 years old. Thanks to the series "Downton Abbey" and the gorgeous role of the dowager Countess of Grantham, the actress remained in sight 5 years after the end of "Harry Potter". Moreover, she constantly receives invitations to various interesting films for the main roles. With the last one, "The Lady in the Van," where Maggie played an eccentric London old lady, she was even nominated for a Golden Globe in 2015. She would be called to continue acting, but health problems no longer allow her to work as intensively.
