The ranking is arbritrary because, really, they’re all winners. Emma Watson By sheer numbers, the onetime Hermione is the clear winner here.
Here then is an arbitrarily ranked list of which young “Potter” alum has had the best career.
Daniel, 27, Rupert, 28, and Emma, 26, were cast as stars Harry, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger in 2000, starring in eight films over a decade before 2011’s final Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part Two.
The play, which is sold out until February 2018 in London, is set 19 years after the last film and follows Harry’s son Albus’s struggle to live up to his family legacy.
He was merely Bill Weasley in the final two entries. Gleeson is presently interred in the “Star Wars” franchise (pictured, on the right), playing the evil, very British General Hux.
His grimy incarnation of punk rocker Cheetah Chrome was one of the best things in the terrible “CBGB.” And we hope the TV version of Guy Ritchie’s “Snatch” gets picked up for a second season, if only so he can keep playing another, very different trusty sidekick. Tom Felton Tom Felton ranks last on this list, but don’t look at it that way; see him as sixth best. He looks to be pretty kind in the forthcoming war dog picture “Megan Leavey,” playing a veteran handler.In fact, you should probably learn how to pronounce his very Irish first name now: It’s DOH-null. Of the three "Potter" leads, he's had the most relaxed (read: not too big) career since, and he seems like a laidback, charmingly strange guy. Grint was often the most enjoyable of “Potter”’s central trio; of anything in those films, we miss his reliably goofy reaction shots the most.Lord knows it’s difficult to escape the shadow of Ron Weasley. Even if Grint did nothing but loose variations on a Ron Weasley type for all eternity, that would be fine.Film expert and well-connected Harry Potter insider Jim Hill revealed in a US podcast that Harry Potter bosses planned to breath new life into the franchise, just like Star Wars, by turning the play - which is split into two parts - into three movies. has actually had conversations with Emma, with Rupert, and, of course, Daniel about Cursed Child, because they want this to be, for lack of a better term, Harry Potter: The Force Awakens.“They want this trilogy of movies to have the actors that we know and love from the original films, that we watched grow up, as adults.With the exception of Daniel Radcliffe (busy singing and dancing on Broadway), the main cast members and creative team behind the beloved series spent their Sunday at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Manhattan answering questions from assembled journalists. "I've always felt this close connection to Ron, even before the films," he said.
