1. Rupert Grint - Ronald Weasley
With red hair and a hand-me-down robe, Rupert played one of the most adored, loyal characters in the series: Ron. Even if he didn’t grow up to be quite as hot as some of his co-stars, he was definitely an adorable kiddo, especially when he was playing giant games of life-or-death chess, defeating a mountain troll, and (very) begrudgingly following the spiders into the Forbidden Forest with Harry.
2. Devon Murray - Seamus Finnigan
Devon's character is most widely known for setting fire to his possessions (and himself) during his first year at Hogwarts. He appears less frequently in the later films, usually onscreen only in groups such as Dumbledore’s Army, Hagrid’s Magical Creature’s class, and at the disastrous World Cup in the fourth movie. We think his cute, unique accent more than makes up for his lack of Longbottoming.

3. Josh Herdman - Gregory Goyle
As one of Malfoy’s closest chums throughout the series, Josh's character never gained much favor with the audience as he was always on Malfoy’s side, trying to thwart Harry and the rest of the “good guys.” Perhaps we would find his blocky face and buzz cut (reminiscent of an inmate) a bit more appealing if his character had redeemed himself by the end, but we're sure he's a lovely person in real life.

4. Hugh Mitchell - Colin Creevey
Who can forget the equally endearing and annoying Colin Creevey? Hugh's character was most prominent in The Chamber of Secrets, always pestering Harry with a camera around his neck. Innocent little Mitchell is almost unrecognizable these days with those large frame glasses, but his curls are the same.

5. Harry Melling - Dudley Dursley
“Ickle Diddykins,” the spoiled brat cousin who constantly tormented and abused Harry for the better part of his childhood actually turned out to not be a complete slimeball after all. Melling lost most of the weight from his younger years of eating endless sweets (including the birthday cake Hagrid intended for Harry), but perhaps if he had smiled a bit more instead of scowling all the time, his looks would have fared better.

6. Jamie Waylett - Vincent Crabbe
Crabbe (played by Jamie Waylett) barely ever uttered a word during the movies, but his facial expressions alone made it very clear that he wasn’t a fan of Harry, Ron, and Hermione. It seems Waylett's character's bad attitude carried over into the real world. Waylett was sentenced to two years for participating in the 2011 England riots.

7. Chris Rankin - Percy Weasley
Chirs Rankin didn't have the most popular character, and therefore hasn't garnered our love. Maybe it was playing such a rigid character, but the condescending look has never faded from his long, narrow face.

8. Jessie Cave - Lavender Brown
Jessie Cave got to play the slightly crazy love interest of Ron in the Half-Blood Prince, but she hasn't changed much since the end of the movies. Sadly, she doesn't seem to have Emma Watson's penchant for fashion and effortless beauty, but instead favors unflattering glasses and childish hair clips.

9. Eleanor Columbus - Susan Bones
Eleanor played a relatively minor character, Susan, in Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone. While she has lost the baby weight she had a child and adolescent, Eleanor still just looks sad all the time.

10. Edward Randell - Justin Finch-Fletchley
Edward Randell played Justin Finch-Fletchley, who was everyone's least favorite Hufflepuff. We love when an awkward kid grows up to be hella-attractive, but that was not Edward's fate. Maybe no one can eclipse the legend that is Matthew Lewis.
