You won’t believe what Viktor Krum looks like now

And the Triwizard Cup goes to...

It’s hard to believe that it was the twentieth anniversary of the Harry Potter books this year and well, we’re feeling a little nostalgic lately. We decided to see what a few of our favourite childhood actors were up to and were shocked to find that Stanislav Ianevski, i.e. the world’s greatest Quidditch player Viktor Krum, has a pretty killer Instagram nowadays. (Hermione, girl, we finally get it.)

If that alone doesn’t make you feel old, then seeing what the rest of the Harry Potter cast look like now will. Or in fact, any of the other kids from our favourite 90s franchises.

For example, it’s almost been a good 15 years since the final episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch aired on our screens. And not to try and add to the age crisis you’re now probably experiencing, but the child actors of one of your favourite TeenNick shows are now all grown, so much so you many not even recognise them.

Then of course, there’s the child cast of the Mrs Doubtfire who starred as the family of the late great Robin Williams. The Hilard family look a little different nowadays, though we’re sure they’re still getting up to hijinks.

But it’s not just our favourite witches and wizards that have had a spell cast on them. It’s been over 10 years since the final episode of Friends aired on our TV screens and the younger cast have grown up A LOT in the 13 years since we said goodbye to the gang.

Fans 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?

Of course, Ross then 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. You won’t believe just how grown up they are now, or what Phoebe’s triplets look like today, either. It’s safe to say the child cast of everyone’s favourite TV show have definitely grown up.

The child 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 won’t believe your eyes when you see 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 don’t recognise little Juanita Solis from Desperate Housewives.
