Harry Potter's Luke Youngblood is unrecognisable and living in Hollywood 20 years after first film | The Sun

HE rose to fame playing Lee Jordan in the Harry Potter films, but these days Luke Youngblood looks a far cry from his wizarding alter-ego.

The talented actor, now 36, currently lives in LA after carving a successful career for himself after the hugely popular franchise came to an end.


And he’s turned into a mega hunk thanks to his impressive six pack, which he often shows off on social media.

Luke recently shared a picture of himself on the famous Harry Potter set and told his followers: “20 years since this big mouth, big teeth and wig first debuted on the big screen — happy anniversary to the job that quite literally brought so much magic into my life. #harrypotter #leejordan #gryffindorwins #always.”

The star usually shares snaps of his lavish holidays from Mexico to Spain.

The actor often posts pictures of him enjoying life in America, with several photos of him posing topless on the beach in California, Arizona and Florida.

Speaking about the best thing about his time on Harry Potter, Luke previously said: I think it was probably meeting everyone and forming lifelong friendships.

“I got to play quite a few pranks with James and Oliver, who are still some of my close friends and played the twins in the movies.

“All of us were just kind of thrust together and were immersed in this huge world that we didn’t even know was going to be as big as it was.”
