Eighteen years after his debut in the wizarding world, Yanevski is almost unrecognizable.

In a recent Instagram video, Yanevski promoted a Harry Potter gift shop while donning an eccentric 1940s-inspired outfit and holding a tobacco pipe. His post reflected his journey through the ages, inspired by the world of art in all its forms and colors.

He expressed a positive and friendly energy, influenced by a unique boutique bookstore.

From Hogwarts to Motivational Speaking

Yanevski's character in Harry Potter, known for attracting attention at Hogwarts, especially from Hermione Granger at the Yule Ball, has now traded his clean-shaven look and famous shaved head for a bushy beard and mustache. Despite the change, he maintains his fitness, regularly showcasing his physique on social media.
