As a Harry Potter fan, if you have read the books and watched all the movies, one of the most engaging things you could do is appreciate how much effort the casting director and make-up artists put into making the actors match their looks from the descriptions given in the books .
Still, there will always be some sort of difference in their looks in the real world. However, things can be a lot more interesting when artists use Artificial Intelligence to get creative.
Melbourne-based content creator Anna, or msbananaanna , used AI to recreate Harry Potter characters based on their original descriptions in the books.
Here are the most popular characters from the Harry Potter series and how they would have looked based on their description from the books:
