If that wasn't enough, aside from updating
Pottermore for all our wizarding needs, Rowling's newest tale, " Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is hitting theaters this November, and is going to be made into five movies!
We've done quite a few deep dives on your favorite "Harry Potter" characters, everyone from
Lee Jordan, to Lavender Brown, to Padma Patil. However, what ever happened to young Severus Snape?
Young Snape was used in a flashback to see what life was like when Harry's parents, James and Lilly, were around. As we all know, Snape had a crush on Lilly, but was overshadowed by Harry's dad. Thus, leading to long history between Snape and the Potters.

Ever curious what he looks like now? Benedict Clarke, who is now 19 years-old, played the young potions professor in "
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," and is all grown up.
Yeah, we'd still say he's in Slytherin. His IMDb page states that he's only appeared in three other short films; however, his photography skills are accio-amazing! Just check out his Instagram.
Yeah, we're pretty impressed. He sure has come a long way since 2011!
