Yahoo Contributor Network

"Harry Potter" stars Bonnie Wright and Jamie Campbell Bower have called off their engagement.

The pair began dating in 2009, though they were first spotted together in public at the BAFTAs in February 2010. They announced their engagement in April 2011 and attended the premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" as a couple.

Wright (21) is best known for her portrayal of Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter's love interest and eventual wife. Bower (23) played young Gellert Grindelwald in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1" and Caius Volturi in three of the "Twilight" films.

A source says that the pair "split a while ago," adding that "it was amicable, but things had not been going right for some time." Meanwhile, Bower has recently been photographed holding hands with "Mirror, Mirror" star Lily Collins, so it looks like he's had no trouble moving on.

Though things didn't work out for Wright and Bower, the love lives of some other "Potter" stars seem to be heating up. Here's a look at some former cast members who are currently dating.

Actress Emma Watson, who will forever be associated with her on-screen alter ego Hermione Granger, was seen kissing boyfriend Will Adamowicz at the Coachella Music Festival in April. The pair, who are both students at Brown University, began dating in 2011 while studying abroad at Oxford. The "Perks of Being a Wallflower" star tweeted, "As far as I'm concerned I turned 22 when Florence + the Machine sang 'What the Water Gave Me' at Coachella." Sounds like a good birthday!

Daniel Radcliffe, who grew up on the big screen during his 10-year run playing Harry Potter, is in a committed relationship with production assistant Rosie Coker. The pair met on the set of "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince," but didn't confirm their relationship until earlier this year. The 22-year-old actor gushed about his leading lady, saying "Rosie's lovely. She's a wonderful, wonderful girl who's far too good for me."

Actor Tom Felton (24), better known as Draco Malfoy, has been dating stunt assistant Jade Gordon (sometimes credited as Jade Olivia) for a whopping four and half years! Jade (25) made a cameo appearance in the final "Potter" film, playing Draco's future wife Astoria in the epilogue. Felton said, "It was a lot of fun to play onscreen hubby and wife for a bit and have a kid for three days." As for possible wedding plans, the actor hastened to add, "Three days is a good amount of time, for anyone wondering."

Another "Potter" star who transformed before viewers' eyes is Matthew Lewis, well-known for his portrayal of nerd-turned-hottie Neville Longbottom. Lewis (23) is dating school teacher Alison Wynd (21), who once had a run-in with Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. While chatting at a polo match, Wynd chanced to meet the future king, whom she described as "down to earth" and said made her laugh.

Though he's been under the radar of late, actor Rupert Grint has been seen out and about with presumed girlfriend Georgia Groome. The 23-year-old actor played Ron Weasley in the film series, while 20-year-old Groome is best known for her role in the 2008 film, "Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging." Though the two have been mum on the exact status of their relationship, they've been photographed together at various events, often kissing and looking quite couple-like.
