Harry Potter Facts
Just like any other movie or film, The Harry Potter movies definitely have some interesting fact and secrets behind the camera. Whether are about the cast, the actors, or secrets just about the movie in general, so let us begin with some facts and secrets of Harry Potter!
#1. As you know, Harry Potter and Voldemort are well known enemies. But what J.K Rowling did not tell you is that Harry and Voldemort are actually related. She revealed that they are related through the Peverell’s, the guys who inspired “The Tale of Three Brothers”. It can be traced back far enough to see that Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort are in fact, related.
#2. In the first book/movie, Harry found out he is able to speak parseltongue, the language of snakes. After the battle of Hogwarts, and after Harry killed Voldemort, Harry actually lost his ability to speak parseltongue. J.K Rowling said that since Harry is no longer a horcrux, he lost his ability to speak to and understand snakes.
#3. During the making of the Harry Potter movies, Daniel Radcliff would have his name splashed across every tabloid if he had acted to adult like, (a tabloid is a newspaper half the size of a normal one. Normally for headlines, photographs, and sensational quotes). The producer thought it was a big deal since he was the main character and was supposed to act like a child. This pressured him to come on set after too much drinking.
#4. The actor who played Crabbe, Draco Malfoys friend, was arrested for illegal substances. Because of this, the producer replaced his character with a new actor who played Blaise Zabini.
#5. Before recording, Tom Felton, the actor who plays Draco Malfoy, would sneak apples onto set in his robe pockets and eat them during his scenes. They prod7ucers kept these parts in because he thought it was funny, creative, and added nice touches.
#6. In the scene where Hermione, Ron, and Harry drank Polyjuice potion to go undercover as Crabbe, goyle, and pansy to get secrets out of Draco, Tom Felton (Draco), forgot his lines and said, ‘I didn’t know you could read” as a filler for his forgotten line. Instead of redoing this scene the producers kept it in because they loved it and thought it was so funny and original.
#7. In the movie “Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban”, there was a scene where Hermione threatened Draco with her wand. In the script, she was supposed to “punch” him, when they were filming, she ACUALLY punched him, on accident of course. The producer decided to keep it in because it was priceless, and looked really real (because well, it was), but it was over all a really good touch, well for the movie at least, it probably was not at all the best for Tom.
That is all for my Harry Potter facts!
