‘Harry Potter’ Star Says Fans Don’t Recognize Him After Dramatic Weight Loss

Share on Facebook

One particular Harry Potter star has recently made the headlines again after fans deemed him “unrecognizable” after his dramatic weight loss.

The magical world of Harry Potter gave us all our first crushes.

Whether you were into heroes or bad boys, there’s no denying that Harry Potter had a whole range of heartthrobs to crush on throughout our teen years.

I know I can’t.

You might just decide to re-watch the series, or you’re just scrolling through Instagram and you see one of the actors living their normal, non-magical lives and find that all the old feelings start coming back…

I mean, Harry Potter had everyone’s hearts. A humble guy with the power to save the world? We stan.

Our first-ever girl-crush and, even today, Emma Watson reigns supreme.

Ron Weasley was such an underrated guy, but when your best friends with people like Harry and Hermione, you’re bound to be considered a diamond in the rough.

No one could resist their charms.

The perfect Hogwarts student with a dashing smile… But a very unfortunate ending. Yikes.

Remus Lupin, Severus Snape, Sirius Black and Lucius Malfoy. I mean, it’s an interesting choice, but let’s stick to the others, please.

And that’s Draco Malfoy.

As pathetic as he was sometimes, we pitied him for the immense amount of pressure he got from his family to be the “perfect” evil son, even if he didn’t want to be.

The black suit? The turtle neck? The parted hair? It was a look. No one could ever pull it off as well as he did.

So it’s no wonder why no one ever got over their crush on the wannabe bad boy.

Sweet, sensitive, and slightly traumatized.

After his dramatic weight loss, he took on some new roles on the big screen that left people questioning who this actor was.

But it’s actually him.

Get ready for the big revelation.

The British actor has been broadening his horizons with newer projects including The Devil All The Time, and Queen Gambit.

No wonder people couldn’t recognize him!

Melling told People this: “I think it was an unconscious thing when it started to happen. I went to drama school when I was 18 and that’s kind of where the weight shifted, not for any sort of major need on my side, but it’s just something that just happened.”

“And I’ve done a lot since drama school, went to do lots of theaters. I think one of the blessings of that sort of stage in my life was the fact that I didn’t get recognized.”

“I had this history of being part of the films, but also I felt like I had the opportunity to sort of cause a new start, which I think is useful.” But we’re totally here for his new look. If you want to see more amazing transformations, then keep scrolling…
