Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 was released five years ago, but it feels like much longer, right?! (Is someone using a Time-Turner on us?) It will especially feel this way when you observe how much the movies’ younger characters have grown up.

Just take a look at Ellie Darcey-Alden (young Lily Potter), who was only 11 years old when the last Harry Potter movie was released in 2011:

And this is what she looks like now, five years after Deathly Hallows: Part 2, at age 16:

A side-by-side that makes it look as though Ellie borrowed an ageing potion from the Weasley twins:

Plus, we’re currently rejoicing because Lily is basically the patron saint of fangirls everywhere.

She loves John Green:

Really LOVES Supernatural:

Luckily, Supernatural loves Ellie just as much:

And the young actress also dabbles in Doctor Who:

With all these lovely things in mind, we cannot wait to check back in another five years and see what young Lily Potter is up to.
