We all remember the Harry Potter saga as a fantasy world with cute little kids running around a castle with their magic wands, drinking #Butterbeer, using weird creatures as transportation. Oh, and there’s also a crazy amount of old men and women who survived this (crazy) world for more than 200 years — impressive!
Yeah, #HarryPotter is definitely not famous for its bunch of hotties. We’ve never really heard people talking about hot dudes from the films except when the fourth Harry Potter was released and #RobertPattinson showed his cute face on screen for the first time. Sorry though — we won’t be talking about Robert and his dark, beautiful eyes. We will instead dedicate this article to those actors who didn’t shine as teenagers, but who definitely turns heads now, ranking them from hot to hottest.

It feels like only yesterday since we last saw these actors in Harry Potter. Did they use a beauty spell on their abs, or did they just work out like the rest of us?
