From Emma Watson to Dylan and Cole Sprouse, here's what your favourite child actors look like now...

Most of us grew up with them and more of us than we care to admit used to spend our childhoods wishing we were them (hello, who didn’t want those flying shoes from Spy Kids?!). But what ever did happen to our favourite child star actors?

Remember nervous little Neville Longbottom from Harry Potter? With his red chubby cheeks, wonky teeth and nervous stammer? Well what if we told you that Matthew Lewis has grown up to become one of the biggest heart-throbs walking the planet?

How about Hermione? Sure, we all know that at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two her and Ron FINALLY got together (better late than never). And die hard fans of the franchise will be able to find out what everyone’s favourite couple are up to 19 years later, in J K Rowling’s play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. But what about Emma Watson? As it turns out, her and her on screen persona have more in come than you might think.

Speaking of Hermione, whatever happened to her first love? The dishy Durmstrang Viktor Krum who popped up in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Would you believe he’s now 31? And looking COMPLETELY different?

It’s not all about the cast of Harry Potter, though. We were recently shocked to discover what Phoebe’s triplets in Friends look like today (HINT: they’ve grown up a lot). And of course there’s also the question of what Ross’s son Ben is up to these days (did you know he was played by TWO rather famous twins?).

Speaking of child actors who found fame on popular TV shows, you’ll never guess what Mirada and Steve’s baby Brady from Sex and the City looks like now. Or what he recently revealed about our favourite TV show in a recent interview.
