Padma Patil from 'Harry Potter' is grown up now and people are obsessed

A lot of people have a deep connection to Harry Potter. There were the countless children who grew up reading the books, and the parents who read to them often ended up getting pretty invested too. Then, with the film adaptations following behind by a few years, a new generation of kids were introduced to the wizarding world of Hogwarts.

So, that's why you'll find thousands of volumes of fan fiction online about these characters, and why there will be Tumblr users arguing about the hidden motivations of certain wizards and witches for years to come. Plus, with the recent addition of the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them franchise expanding the universe further, and The Cursed Child play offering an epilogue to Harry's story - it looks like it won't be going away any time soon.

As the movies came out, we also saw the cast grow up. Now, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, and Daniel Radcliffe are fully grown adults with their own careers in the industry, leaving behind the roles that made them so famous. Even some supporting cast members, such as Matthew Lewis, have gained a strong following in the years since.

Lewis played Neville Longbottom - the endearingly dorky accident-prone teen from the series - wasn't exactly a looker, but in the years since Lewis has blossomed into something far more handsome than anyone was expecting. Just look:

In case you had any plans to track him down and work your charms on the hunk, you're not really in much luck. As it turns out, Lewis recently got married to his fiancée Angela Jones last month.

The pair met at a Wizarding World event in Orlando in 2016, getting engaged later that year.

However, Lewis isn't the only supporting castmember to blossom into a fine-looking heartthrob. The internet is currently freaking out over just how beautiful actress Afshan Azad now looks, years after she portrayed Padma Patil in the movies.

"Don't you look – dashing," is the quote that springs to mind, a line the sassy twin directs at Ron during the Yule Ball.

The British actress hasn't returned to movies in the years since, admitting that she initially auditioned for the role "just for the fun of it". In the years since she has apparently been working in modelling - which makes sense, when you see what she looks like now.

Azad's Instagram bio hilariously describes herself as "That Indian girl who was in Harry Potter", but users are making an entirely different connection. Partly due to her make-up skills, many are comparing her to none other than Kylie Jenner.

Personally, I don't see the comparison - but there are many that do. It hasn't got past the actress herself, who has poked fun at the idea that everyone has made this comparison:

Do you think she looks like Kylie Jenner?
