One of the best harry potter facts , the director of ‘Happy Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban’ – Alfonso Cuaron, asked Radcliff, Rupert and Watson to each write an essay about their roles for sake of better understanding them.
Guess what! Watson handed in 16 pages, Radcliff a single page and finally Rupert refused to hand in anything entirely!
I hand out my paper in an exam when I don’t usually know anything. Shush! Nobody tell Rupert that.
Dolores Umbridge’s pink office
Remember the scene when Harry enters Dolores Umbridge’s pink office and stares at the wall of moving kittens appearing on plates. Those kitten are in fact real and they went to become domestic pets.
Little do the owners know about their pets acting career previously! It might just make them worth more. Wouldn’t it?
Saw those magnificent opening sequences of the Hogwarts castle, Showing its aged might and intricate details. It is in fact actually a 1: 24 scale model, designed by the artistry crew to be used for the film.
Not only did those scenes looked enchanting but did wonders to add to the films landscape experience. 86 especially talented artists built the model with each and every detail from courtyards, tower, and fields all that can be shined from within.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
In the Potter franchise, the third installment ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’ turned out to be the least successful one. Yet still churned out a solid 90 million more than another famous movie – Twilight.
UK’s Child Labor Laws
The first Potter film invoked a change in the UK’s child labor laws, as both Daniel Radcliff – harry potter real name , Emma Watson- as Hermione Granger and Rupert Grint – as Ron Weasley, were all minors during that period.
The change brought in the addition of a small number of working hours every week and making classes available on set with more flexibility.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- Part 1
In ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- Part 1’ a scene involved Harry and Hermione to share a prolonged intense kiss. That part was filmed without Rupert’s presence, because he was removed from the sets. Beg to ask why?
Rupert couldn’t stop laughing, looking at the both of them and distracting them both. I can only imagine the hilariousness happening!
