After re-watching the series a few dozens times that past few weeks, one character that we couldn't get out of our heads was Moaning Myrtle...probably because she scared us a bit, but nevertheless.

Ever curious what Moaning Myrtle looks like now? We sure have been, and we did some digging.

Shirley Henderson, who played Myrtle in the series, is now 50 years-old and is as busy as ever. Aside from "Chamber of Secrets" and "Goblet of Fire," the Scottish born actress has starred in movies like "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason," and "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day."
