    Do you ever wonder where your favourite child actors are now and what they’re up to? Or if you’d even recognise them if you happened to bump into them in the street?

    Well, as we love all things nostalgic we decided to subtly stalk a few of the younger actors from some of the most iconic films to grace cinema screens and find out the answers.

    To start with we decided to travel back in time to the days of Friends and boy were we shocked. 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 and what crazy projects they have in the pipeline, 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.

    And of course, having recently celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the Harry Potter books we decided to see what a few of our favourite childhood actors were up to. Let’s just say we were shocked to find that Stanislav Ianevski, (aka the world’s greatest Quidditch player Viktor Krum), has a pretty killer Instagram nowadays. (Hermione, we finally get it). Oh, and one of the Harry Potter actresses is now a bodybuilder – so not what we were expecting to find out.

    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.

    But it’s not just our favourite witches and wizards that have had a spell cast on them. Mary Poppins and Mrs. Doubtfire, and boy were we shocked. Not only is young Jane Banks all grown up these days, but the child cast of Mrs. Doubtfire also look just a little different nowadays.

    The child cast of Mary Poppins 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.
