So, it’s a small miracle that the three child stars of the Harry Potter franchise, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have turned out pretty well-adjusted (well, as far as we know anyway).

James and Oliver Phelps — that’s Fred and George Weasley — still hang out with their Harry Potter costars nearly 7 years after the release of the final film.
