Tom Felton

Felton has played Harry Potter’s arch-nemesis Draco Malfoy in all eight “Harry Potter” films. In between, he starred in several independent horror flicks, including “Disappeared” in 2008 and “13Hrs” in 2010. In August, he will appear in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” starring James Franco. Felton, 23, also is one of the founders of Six String Productions, a recording company that represents young talented musicians turned down by major recording industry executives.

Bonnie Wright

The young Weasley sister is all grown up and engaged to another “Harry Potter” actor, Jamie Campbell Brower, who played the younger version of Gellert Grindelwald in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.” Brower is a cast member of that other pop culture phenomena — he plays Caius in the “Twilight” films. Wright, 20, is signed on to other movies. She’s currently filming a story called “Geography of the Hapless Heart,” which comprises five love stories shot in five locations around the world.

Matthew Lewis

Millions of “Harry Potter” fans will see Neville Longbottom come into his own in the latest film, just as the 22-year-old actor has come into his. Lewis started his magical journey at 11, just like his character. As he and his character grew, he gradually shed the fat suit, false teeth and protruding ears. As Lewis told Parade magazine, Neville got “a bit cooler.” Like fellow “Potter” actor Daniel Radcliffe, Lewis has recently taken to the stage to hone his craft, performing in a U.K. production of Agatha Christie’s “Verdict.”

James and Oliver Phelps

Best known for their roles as mischievous twins Fred and George Weasley, the 25-year-old Phelps brothers are more like their characters than many realize, being known as pranksters among friends and family. Aside from the Potter films, the twins also briefly appeared in the English television series “Kingdom” in 2009. In September, Oliver is set to begin filming the movie “Latin Quarter,” an account of Pablo Picasso’s adventurous first years in Paris during the early 1900s.

Evanna Lynch

The 19-year-old Irish actress began her acting career playing the quirky Luna Lovegood in the fifth movie, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.” Lynch contributed to the upcoming book “Dear Mr. Potter: Letters of Love, Loss, and Magic,” which features letters and pictures from fans describing how J.K. Rowling’s magical story touched their lives. Proceeds from the book will benefit the youth literacy efforts of the Harry Potter Alliance, a nonprofit organization that engages young people in solving social justice issues.
