Harry Potter’s Arthur Bowen is unrecognisable 11 years after playing Albus Severus Potter in the movie | The Sun

HARRY Potter star Arthur Bowen has fans heads spinning as he looks completely unidentifiable after 11 years.

Arthur, 24, played Harry Potter's second child Albus Severus Potter in the seventh movie of the iconic franchise.

Since his appearance on 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2', Arthur has become popular, gaining over 26.3k followers on Twitter.

When he auditioned for the role, he did not tell his parents.

They came to know about it only when they received a letter from the casting crew, asking Arthur to come to London for more auditions.

He also played a Boy at Chestnut Stand in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

But, Arthur did not pursue acting after his one appearance in the franchise.

From West Oxfordshire, Arthur enjoys playing football for his school and local team.

His favourite Harry Potter character is Severus Snape, who is also his character's namesake.

Due to air on New Year's Day, Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts will celebrate two whole decades since the first of eight Harry Potter films – Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone – was released.

The cast and crew of the franchise will all meet up again – out of character – back at Hogwarts, and unsurprisingly, things get emotional.

The stars all look over the moon to be in the same place as their former work family after so long, and are frequently seen stating they will always be bound for life through the films.

During a sit-down discussion with Rupert Grint, 33, Emma Watson exclaims that: "It feels like no time has passed and loads of time has passed!"

The star could be seen tearing up as she got emotional over the franchise's impact, saying: "When things get really dark, and times are really hard, there’s something about Harry Potter that makes life richer."

Rupert agreed with his pal, replying: "It’s a strong bond that we’ll always have.

"We’re family, we’ll always be part of each other's life."

Additional Harry Potter film alumni joining the memorable tribute include Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, Tom Felton, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, Ian Hart, Toby Jones, Matthew Lewis, Evanna Lynch, producer David Heyman and filmmakers Chris Columbus, Alfonso Cuarón, Mike Newell and David Yates.
