Seven years back, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson were unknown preteens, growing up in the UK, when they were plucked from obscurity and thrust into international superstardom, landing the coveted roles of three young wizards in the big-screen telling of the literary smash hit Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Now, the fifth Potter flick is in theaters — Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix opened July 11 — and these "kids" are young adults. They're dealing with stalkers, tabloids and, well, nudity. In Harry Potter: Now & Then, we look at their spellbinding roads to stardom — as well as the little bumps the beloved teens hit along the way.
