This week, Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling published a short story update on the characters from her beloved series of novels: Harry has "a couple threads of silver in his hair", Hermione Granger is the deputy head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, and Ron Weasley's “famous ginger hair appears to be thinning slightly”. But these aren't the only changes life has dealt the now-grown kids from the books...

Other Ways Life Is Different for the Harry Potter Characters in Their 30s

—Dementors have been replaced by soulless student loan debt collectors. (Brandon)

—All the magic in the world can't help sales of Robin Thicke's new album. (Dan)
