Harry Potter was a worldwide phenomenon! People fell in love with the characters in the book on and off screen, but unfortunately for some of the stars who played our most beloved characters, the role typecast them and has kept their careers from progressing ever since. This list takes a look at some of the actors whose careers have been at a standstill since their days in Harry Potter.

9. Rupert Grint

While his co-stars Daniel Radcliff and Emma Watson have successfully made the transition to the mainstream, poor Rupert has been stuck in under-the-radar roles and TV movies ever since his Harry Potter days. His first film after the Harry Potter series was an anti-war film called Into the White, which only received limited release in the US. Grint made his Broadway debut in 2014 in It’s Only a Play and is currently filming Sick Note, a television series set for release in 2017. You’ll always be Ron Weasley to us, Rupert!

8. Devon Murray

Devon Murray played the ever-endearing Seamus Finnigan in all of the Harry Potter film, and one would think this would have been enough to launch his career. Unfortunately, every other film acting cred this guy has to his name happened before the franchise swooped in and forever cast him as Seamus! It’s too bad, we’d love to see him off the quidditch pitch!
