Remember Lucy pevensie? the girl from the epic Chronicles of Narnia: the lion, the witch and the wardrobe. While she was just 10 when she played a leading role in a movie that grossed $750m worldwide.

- Bonnie Wright
To be fair, all of the Harry Potter cast grew up and became hot because when a franchise runs 10 years and you star kids, there’s dramatic difference you witness in respective movies. But if you compare to what they look today and how they looked back in 2001. Have a look at Bonnie Wright who starred as ginny weasley, Harry’s love interest.
