So grown up

Can you believe it’s been over 10 years since the final episode of Friends aired on our TV screens? Not to try and add to the age crisis you’re now probably experiencing, but the child actors of Friends have grown up A LOT in the 13 years since we said goodbye to the gang.

Fans of Friends will recall that Ross was the first of the bunch to become a dad after his ex-partner Carol gave birth to their son, Ben. But did you know that baby Ben was in fact played by TWO rather famous twins throughout the show? Ross later went on to have a second child with Rachel (who could forget that love story?) and it turns out Emma Geller-Green was also played by a set of twins, and you won’t believe just how grown up they are these days.  We were also recently shocked to discover what Phoebe’s triplets look like today, it’s safe to say the child cast of everyone’s favourite TV show have definitely grown up.

The younger cast of Friends aren’t the only child actors who have grown up a lot since their rise to fame, either. The actress who played Matilda in the 1996 movie of the same name looks SO different today, although you can still see the resemblance.

You’ll never guess what Miranda 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). And we bet you won’t even recognise what Juanita Solis from Desperate Housewives now.

Our favourite TV child actors aren’t the only ones who have grown up on the camera. 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, she has more in common with her on screen persona 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?
