This Is What New Movies “Harry Potter” Actors Are Starring In
An actor that does not need an introduction is Gary Oldman. The actor was already regarded as one of the greatest actors of his generation before starring in the ‘Harry Potter’ movies. He plays ‘Sirius Black’ who was Harry’s godfather. In his most recent work as Winston Churchill in 2017’s ‘Darkest Hour’, he won an Oscar for Best Actor for his incredible performance.
We met ‘Draco Malfoy’ played by Tom Felton in the very first ‘Harry Potter’ movie and hated him right from the start. He played a privileged, arrogant child who knew the power his father had over all others. The actor was recently seen in 2018’s fiction drama web television series ‘Origin’ as ‘Logan Maine’.
Did you know that actor David Thewlis auditioned for the role of ‘Quirinus Quirrell´ in ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ but the role was given to actor Ian Hart? Yes, but then in 2004 he was cast as ‘Professor Remus Lupin’ in ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’ and was seen again in ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2’. His most recent work was in 2017’s ‘Wonder Woman’ and the TV show ‘Fargo’.
Another character from the ‘Harry Potter’ universe that most people hate is ‘Dudley Dursley’ who is a spoiled brat and stepbrother to Harry. The actor who played the character is very talented and we finally got a glimpse of his acting ability in the 2018 American western comedy-drama anthology film by the Coen brothers, ‘The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’. In one of the short stories, Melling plays a young thespian with no arms or legs who recites plays for the audience.
