  • The Harry Potter movies wrapped back in 2011, but we’re still just as obsessed with the films, characters and actors as we were eight years ago. Who doesn’t love knowing what the cast are up to these days? Have you seen what Victor Krum looks like now? And did you know that one of the stars is now a body builder?

    And we’re so here for the reunions, too. There was a mini Harry Potter cast reunion when the Malfoys got back together in real life, and Emma Watson shared a lovely photo of herself with Tom Felton that sent Potterheads across the globe into a frenzy.

    So you can imagine fans delight when Tom decided to share a throwback of sorts on Instagram – and you need to see it.

    The actor was just twelve years old when he was cast in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and he went on to star in all eight movies. The start of his career as Draco Malfoy was back in 2001 (yes, it really was eighteen years ago), and poking fun at how much he has changed the actor posted a photo of himself standing next to a poster of his younger self.

    Dressed in a Hogwarts robe, he captioned the snap: ‘Ageing is a bitch.’
