There has been a lot of talk lately about the wizarding world that includes Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, and Ron Weasley. Talk of "Harry Potter" spinoff films has the world in an uproar, but they may not even include any of the fan favorites. Still, on Oct. 1, 2013, CNN looked at where the Hogwarts Class of 2011 is now and how much they've grown up.
Daniel Radcliffe, who played the lead role of Harry Potter, has gone on to many successful film roles along with stints on stage. He certainly hasn't become a one-hit wonder.
Emma Watson aka Hermione Granger is doing just fine with a whole host of hits in the past year alone. She has made a great name for herself and won't be going away anytime soon.
Rupert Grint, the red-headed Ron Weasley, has done some things here and there but not as much as the other "Harry Potter" leads. Still, he's starring in the upcoming "CGBG" and it shows that he has come a long way from the young child heading to Hogwarts.
Other members of the cast are still working in different films, on stage, and just enjoying their life. So much of it was caught in a wizard school, and now they are learning what it is like to be on their own. The one exception of "doing well" is Jamie Waylett (Vincent Crabbe) who ended up with two years in jail for the 2011 London riots.
