The cake-loving character Bruce Bogtrotter from Matilda has aged like a fine wine.

Jimmy Karz was the actor responsible for playing our favourite cake-loving character Bruce Bogtrotter. The scene of Bruce scoffing his face with richchocolate cake is one of the most loved scenes in the movie Matilda.

The movie was released in 1996 so now 20 years later, the actor is all grown up. Now aged 31, Jimmy is almost unrecognisable from the 12-year-old chubby boy that we are used to. Here's what he looks like now.

The ex-actor is now reportedly in the midst of training to be a doctor at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. 

Last year we discover that ‘Matilda’ and her on screen best pal ‘Lavendar’ still hang out. The actresses, Mara Wilson and Kiami Davael, who are both now 30, are the cutest BFFs. 


Oh and here's the full Bruce eating chocolate cake scene for memory's sake. You're welcome.
