From prison to shooting in Playboy: what was the fate of the child actors who played in the Harry Potter filmsPictolic
Young wizards from Hogwarts appeared in all the Harry Potter films, but what happened to them after the shooting was over? The main actors-Rupert Grint, Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson-have built a dizzying career, conquering the top of Hollywood. Unfortunately, the fate of their comrades on the set, was not so brilliant.
Problems with the law, fights without rules, shooting in Playboy — life has separated the grown-up young actors of the cult film series in completely different ways.
