Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released 10 years ago and summarizes the final chapter of the magic franchise that has attracted millions of people around the world. Of course, the count doesn’t include The Cursed Child and The Fantastic beasts movies, because they are alluringly different from the original series.
With a star lineup of experienced actors like Maggie Smith, Alan Rickman, David Thewlis, Gary Oldman and Robbie Coltrane, these movies are considered to be great adaptations of the great man literary franchise. It saw child actors Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, and Emma Watson become Hollywood stars. Some of them, like others, struggled to make a career apart from their characters in the Harry Potter series.
Daniel Radcliffe, who did his best to make an image of himself, the person playing Harry, made a conscious effort to escape the towering shadow of Harry Potter and explored many genres, from horror films (“Woman in Black”, “Horns”), romantic comedy (What-If) to historical drama (“Young Doctor’s Notebook”). He tried his luck in the biographical film. He returned to fantasy as Igor in “Frankenstein” and left his mark on Broadway with “How to Successfully Start Business Without Trying Too Much” and “The Crippled Inishman”.
After playing Harry’s partner and best friend for ten years, Rupert Grint decided to study independent films and proved his worth through projects such as “Into the White” and “Moonwalker”. After working at ABCs murder series, he is now involved in The Servant which is the production of Apple TV.
Emma Watson overcame her image of Hermione Granger and starred in films such as “The Perks of being a Sunflower”, “The Bling Ring” and “Noah”. In 2017, she played Bella in the Disney remake of “Beauty and the Beast,” which is considered one of the most successful movies of all time. In addition, she also starred in “Little Women”. Emma is a role model because she was appointed as a UN Goodwill Ambassador and launched her gender equality campaign HeforShe.
After playing the satirical Malfoy in Harry Potter, Tom Felton tried many genres, including historical miniseries Labryinth, historical drama Belle and Doctor Alchemy in DC’s “The Flash”.He is also a regular contributor to the science fiction series Origins and the horror film The Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting.
