Looking back at the crazy casting of the Harry Potter series


Sometimes we forget who was originally in the Harry Potter series but, looking back, we see how many actors we love were a part of our favorite franchise!

Casting in the Harry Potter series has been discussed quite frequently throughout the years. From Daniel Radcliffe only really looking like Harry in Prisoner of Azkaban to the ages being very off on James, Lily, Sirius, Lupin and more, we have our issues.

But what is even more surprising is when you look back on the series and remember random actors that were a part of it that you completely forgot about. For instance, David Tennant. Remember Barty Crouch Jr.? That was the tenth Doctor himself.

Really it just shows how expansive the series is. We have people like Tennant and Alan Rickman and then, out of nowhere, we get to see Dean Thomas on American television. The series brought on the careers of so many young actors while combining them with some of our favorite, established performers.

Anymore, it isn’t that way. Most the actors in the Fantastic Beasts series is already established. It’ll be nice though if they decide to introduce new characters and do what the Harry Potter series did for Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and more. Then again, there is nothing like getting cast in a Harry Potter movie.

It’s just fun to think about all the actors who have taken to the wizarding world and we still get to see who will take up their wands in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

It is time we actually get a Harry Potter musical on Broadway. dark. Next
