Harry Potter’s Susan Bones actress Eleanor Columbus unrecognisable 20 years after movie

Harry Potter’s Susan Bones actress Eleanor Columbus unrecognisable 20 years after movie

HARRY Potter’s Susan Bones actress Eleanor Columbus is totally unrecognisable 20 years after the release of the first film.

The actress – who is the daughter of film director Christopher Columbus – appeared as a fresh-faced half blood witch in the movies.

Eleanor, 33, played the Hufflepuff student from 1991 to 1998 – where her character Susan was seen attending Hogwarts alongside wizard Harry.

The much-loved character was a member of the prestigious Bones family, who supported the Order of the Phoenix in the war.

While most of the family had been killed off by Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters, one Susan’s parents had survived.

The star was a young teenager when she appeared in the first two Harry Potter movies, The Philosopher’s Stone and The Chamber of Secrets.

Sporting bright ginger hair, the star was very recognisable amongst the students – but now looks all grown up.

The star has swapped out her bright orange locks for slightly more brunette tresses, after dying her hair bright blonde for a short period.

Eleanor looks to still live State side, where she is often seen travelling with her doting dad, and her sweet puppy Porko.

Following her Harry Potter appearances, the star looked to have turned away from acting – only appearing as an extra in film Rent.

After directing the first two Harry Potter films, her father Christopher left the franchise because he was “emotionally and physically exhausted”.

Eleanor isn’t the only Harry Potter star who is now unrecognisable, as fans were shocked by Dudley Dursley actor Harry Melling.

Harry, 33, made his debut in the first Harry Potter movie back in 2001, when he was just 12 and appeared all the way through until 2010’s Deathly Hallows part one.

But he started shedding the pounds during filming, and was even close to being recast for the final film – having to wear a fat suit to keep his role.

He has gone on to film in several other films, including three Netflix hits that were released this year, but Harry confessed that few people realise he once played Dudley.

He has now told People that his weight loss wasn’t even intentional, and he quite enjoys the surprise side effect of anonymity.

He explained: “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 theater. 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 he almost lost the role in the final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part Two, because he had shed so much weight.

In the end, he played the part wearing a fat suit.

After the franchise ended, Harry said: “I can now shed the child actor thing, like the fat, and start a new career, because no one sees me as Dudley.”
