Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Toby Jones is rather prolific with fantasy/sci-fi these days, The Dream Lord in Doctor Who, Dr Zola in Captain America...

In Game of Thrones, Filch is Lord Frey, Tonks is Osha the Wildling, Hermione's Mom is now Lady Stark and I'm probably missing a few others.

Julian Glover, who plays Grand Maester Pycelle in Game of Thrones, was the voice of Aragog in COS.

We haven't seen him yet except in previews, but Ralph Ineson, who played Amycus Carrow in DH, will be playing Dagmer Cleftjaw in GoT (part of the Greyjoy crew).

Brendan Gleeson in The Guard (2011). A very enjoyable film, well done all around. Gleeson gives a great character portrayal here.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Clemence Poésy briefly appeared as Queen Isabella in Richard II, the first play in BBC2's 'Hollow Crown' series, which started on Saturday.

Excellent production. Looking forward to seeing Tom Hiddleston as Prince Hal.

(Patrick Stewart as John of Gaunt. )


Julie Walters
(Molly Weasley) plays Mistress Quickly in the upcoming Henry IV (parts 1 and 2).

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I can't believe no one has mentioned In Bruges (2008) yet! It has Brendan Gleeson as one of the main protagonists, Ralph Fiennes as the main antagonist and Clémence Poésy as the romantic interest - you don't often see her in other things!

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

She's currently starring in The Hollow Crown on BBC TV with David Bradley (Fllch) a telling of English history from Ricard II - to HenryIV and HenryV using Shakespeare. It's an all star cast, stunning visually and well worth watching!

In the second episode we had Julie Walters..... I'm wondering who will turn up next Saturday...

Actually, SevrusSnape posted on it back in July 2010.

I thought it was an excellent film, quirky yet totally believable characters with a good dose of dark humor.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I was watching the Awake series on NBC and later found out Jason Isaacs plays the main characters!
Also, when I saw the Return of the Planet of the Apes trailers I didn't realize it was Tom Felton.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

The Avengers (1998 film, it's not that superhero movie you're thinking of)

Ralph Fiennes is in it as the lead, it was strange seeing him younger..And with a nose. Jim Broadbent (who plays Slughorn) was also in the movie. Last but not least Fiona Shaw was also in it. Very cool seeing all these HP actors in one movie. It's a pity that the movie wasn't the greatest though.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

This isn't really a movie - and the award is for American viewed television (even though it's a British series) - but Maggie Smith won an Emmy Award last night for Downtown Abbey - Supporting Actress In A Drama Series

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I am sure a lot of you guys have not seen it but if you can find a copy of Rupert Grint's "Into the White" i really recommend you watch it as it is a very good movie.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Rupert Grint -- well his voice -- was on last night's episode of American Dad. He played a British tourist. But he had like three or four scenes and only a few lines -- he sounded a lot different though. He wasn't that funny... if it wasn't for Steve, the son on the show, Rupert's scenes wouldn't be that memorable. Definitely not a scene stealer.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Jamie Campbell Bower (Young Grindelwald) is in the second Twilight movie playing Caius.


Not a movie but Gary Oldman voiced 2 charectors in The video game one of them a Russian guy...he has an amazing Russian accent don't use think? He plays a Russian in Air force One as well.

Emma Watson is in a music video as well Say you don't want it by One Night Only which is awesome.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Julie Walters (Mrs. Weasley) was the voice of the witch in Brave. Robbie Coltrane also voiced a character too.

Gary Oldman acts in loads of films. My favorite was Dracula. He was in The Dark Knight too.
