Inside the fascinating lives of the young Harry Potter cast

They were the trainee wizards that had us spellbound in the Harry Potter films – but where did they get to when Hogwarts closed its doors?

Earlier this month new dad Rupert Grint – who starred as Ron Weasley – shared a picture of his daughter Wednesday, five months, and joined Instagram, immediately racking up 1 million followers.

While Rupert and co-stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) have gone on to stellar careers in stage and screen, some of their classmates have taken different paths.

Almost two decades since the first movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone broke box office records by grossing £763 million ($A1.4 billion) worldwide, the child stars have gone on to become a bodybuilder, a Playboy model and a cage fighter.

One also found himself on the wrong side of the law – even before the eight-film franchise was over.

Criminal Bar diversity will be hit by debt, low fees and pandemic, young barrister warns

A young barrister raised by a single mother on a London council estate has warned that diversity at the Criminal Bar is at risk of going into reverse because of the impact of the pandemic.

Alejandra Llorente Tascon said that long trial delays caused by the crisis meant that junior colleagues were facing increasing financial hardship as payments for their work were being held up for increasing lengths of time.

She warned that this was compounding the existing difficulties caused by the low fees they received and that rising numbers of young criminal barristers were finding it impossible to continue as a result.

Ms Tascon, 27, who was brought up on the Patmore Estate in Battersea and attended local state schools after coming to London from Colombia at the age of nine, added that the trend threatened to deplete the Criminal Bar of talent from less affluent backgrounds.

Boost for family of young man stabbed in nightclub in push for jury law change

Ryan’s father Adrian, centre, with family friend Jason Connon, left and private investigator Russ Winfield

Relatives of Ryan Passey met with Justice Minister Alex Chalk last month to explain why they believe juries should give reasons for their decision in the event of perceived “perverse” verdicts.

Mr Chalk has now promised to take the matter further by raising it with the Lord Chancellor, providing a shot in the arm for the campaigning family.

They insist they have got no justice for Mr Passey, 24, who was knifed in the former Chicago’s bar in Stourbridge in 2017. They are in the course of launching civil proceedings against Kobe Murray, who was cleared of murder. He admitted stabbing Mr Passey, of Quarry Bank, but said he did so in self-defence.

In court trials where a jury’s verdict is felt to be unusual, they believe members should have to explain their decision to
