Any doubt as to whether the child stars who rose to fame through Harry Potter would find careers after the final credits rolled was dispelled years ago. Radcliffe has thrived in a respectable theater career. Watson is about to become a Disney princess. Matthew Lewis (a.k.a. Neville) seems to be acquiring more and more career-boosting abs every day.

But which roles have separated the young stars from their magical past in the best way? For some, their most compelling roles have been in line with their HP characters. Others came into their own playing the complete opposite. From the actors who portrayed the Golden Trio to those who embodied minor characters, the HP kids are crushing it in Hollywood. They'll all have plenty of credits on their IMDb pages before it's time for them to be cast as professors in the reboot.
