Dudley Dursley's amazing transformation: Harry Melling then and now.
We simply can't get enough of then and now images of child stars from Harry Potter. Days after we showed you how Mathew Lewis has Neville Longbottom-ed so hard, it is the turn to realise that the ratty, fat Dudley Dursley has lost all the puppy fat.
Dudley (Harry Melling in real life) looks nothing like the obnoxious Dudley we all used to hate. Instead, the Harry Potter actor is now a lean, mean theatre star. The 26-year-old is pursuing his acting career, and according to his IMDb page he's appeared in a few TV movies and short films. He also wrote and starred in his very own play, Peddling, in 2014 and 2015.
Last year, this is what he had to say about his Harry Potter co-stars to The Economist, "I'm very happy they're doing what they're doing but I wouldn't compare myself to them. I don't feel jealousy or anything like that really, because they're just different situations. I'm not one of "the three," so I'm not going to be in that position, but equally, that allows me to get on the Tube. The thing with [having played] Dudley is that you get a call every now and again going, "We're looking for a really fat, rattish guy." And then my agent has to go, "Oh no, sorry, he's changed."
