Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Sorry of someone mentioned this already, but I was watching Sense and Sensibility last night, and I was so suprised to see how many HP actors are in there!

Alan Rickman, the actor that plays Fudge, the actress that plays Madame Pomfrey, and even the actress that played The Fat Lady portrait in the first (and 2nd?) movies. Oh, and Emma Thompson of course.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I keep on visioning Snape and Trelawney when I watched Love Actually on TV. It was strange.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I saw Ana and the King the other day on TV. It was so weird. There is this scene when Anas son has a fight with the kings son, and I kept telling: Draco, that's not Harry!!! *hopelessly obsessed* (Tom Felton plays Jodie Fosters son)

Actually I remember one now, I did not notice immediately. It is the actor of Arthur Weasley, who plays the stuttering actor in Shakespeare in Love.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I just saw Basic Instinct 2's trailer and David Thewlis (Lupin) plays in it... Looks weird though...


And it's Julie Walters birthday today and mine

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

It took me a couple of times to realize that it was Alan Rickman as "The voice of GOD" in Dogma. It was interesting to see Maggie smith in "Divine Secrets of the YA-YA Sisterhood". I love her in "HOOK". I Absolutely LOVE Gary Oldman. He in in most of my fave movies. Air Force One, Dracula, Fifth Element. (Fifth Element is on of my alltime faves!!)

Also, seeing Robbie Coltrane in Ocean's Twelve was pretty cool. When we went to see it, I told my friend I thought it was him and she thought I was nuts!!

Are they sisters? I didn't think they were. Isn't it Natasha and Joely Richardson that are sisters?

It's not a movie, but has anyone else noticed Mark Williams (Mr Weasley) in the TV adverts from The Link? When I saw one of the ads the other day I was like "Ohmigod it's Mr Weasley!!!" And then I got a load of funny looks from my family.......

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Robbie Coltrane is also in Nuns On The Run, and National Lampoon's European Vacation...the bathroom scene with Beverly D'Angelo.

Maggie Smith in Clash Of The Titans!!! Love that movie...as cheesy as it is...

And Alan Rickman...never realized before how much he is in that I like, safe to say he is one of my fave actors...Robin Hood, Love Actually, Dogma, Die Hard, Sense and Sensibility...

And I can't believe that the guy who plays Arthur Weasley was the one in Shakespeare In Love...I knew I saw him in something!!!

Jason Isaacs(Lucius Malfoy).... He was in Armageddon, The Patriot...Of course, nowhere does he look as good as he does with the long blond hair *sigh*

I totally play that whole six degrees of game with the actors from HP.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

What his name who plays Lupin, is in Basic Instinct. The funny part about it, is that he is so easy to recognize as he extremely similar to how he does in POA.

I just started a thread for that in the games section...


Lets see...

Micheal Gambdon and MAggie Smith were in Gosferd Park recently. The Dame MAggie Smith has been in a number of movies, my favorite being Evil under the sun, where she matches snarky wit with the other queen of snide, Diana Rigg.

Alan Rickman is probably the best known in american films, and was also the voice of Marvin the Depressed Robot in Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Kenneth Branagh and his former wife Emma Thompson were in a few movies together, including Dead Again, along with Derek Jacobi (who isn't in Harry Potter but should be)

Robbie Coltrane is another one who's been in many films, including Krull

Jason Isaacs is also in a lot of american pictures, my favorite being Event Horizon.

Ollivander is played by John Hurt, who provided the voice of Aragorn in the cartoon version of Lord of the Rings (the 70s have a lot ot answer for kids) and the chest cavity for the alien in Alien.

Ray Fiennes, Lord Voldemort, was in the Avengers, but we'll forgive him.

David Tennent, Barty Crouch Jr is the new Doctor Who.

Julian Glover has been in several movies and television, including a couple of Doctor Who episodes, and was also in Diamonds are Forever (making that two Bond movies)

Warwick Davis, aka prof Flitwick was in Willow as the title character and also played an ewok and then a homicidal leprechaun.

Rosmerta is played by Julie Christie, with an acting resume as long as my arm, including Farenheit 451, Dragonheart, Doctor Zhivvago and Troy

Now for some more obscure...

Miranda Richardson played Queen Elizabeth in the second series of Blackadder, along iwth Stephen Fry who reads for the audio books.

Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley) was in the pilot of Red Dwarf as Olaf Peterson.

Tom Felton (malfoy) was also in an episode of "Second Sight" with the very yummy Clive Owen, and I was very impressed with his performance.

Apparently he did the voice of Aragoth (?) the spider, I didn't know that either until I read this thread.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

i remember watching 'Dogma' and i was trying to remember where i had heard the Metatron guy and halfway through the movie, i was like, "that's Snape!"
did anyone else know that Brendan Gleeson was in "The Village"? i found that out in the opening credits.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I'm pretty slow at recognizing actors in different roles and the only reason I recognized Richard Harris (Dumbledore) in The Gladiator was because of his unique voice. Imagine my horror as I watched Dumbledore get choked to death by his own son. A few months later I watched Unforgiven and again recognized Harris by his voice and again to my horror I watched Dumbledore get the snot kicked out of him by Gene Hackman. I know I shouldn't refer to his other characters as Dumbledore, but I really loved his portrayal of the headmaster in the movies and it is hard for me to see him in a different role. Which is every actor's worst nightmare.....

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I didn't catch this one, someone else did, but I can't recall who to give credit. Filch (David Bradley) was Noah in Blow Dry.

And there must have been the same casting director for HP as for Sense and Sensibility. Emma Thompson (Trelawney), Alan Rickman (Snape), Robert Hardy (Fudge), Gemma Jones (Poppy), Elizabeth Spriggs (original Fat Lady). I know some of that has probably been mentioned already.

You gotta' be kidding....she was in Clash of the Titans....I know it's cheesy but I LOVE that stupid movie....along with all the Sinbad flicks (three cheers for Ray Harryhausen....I love the skeleton scene in Jason and the Argonauts) Those were the days before GCI and hungarian horntails and stuff.

And was Richard Harris really in Gladiator....I'm gonna' have to check that out. I just don't remember him in it. My bad....I read somewhere that he was in "Horse" too and had the hooks stuck in his chest....I remember seeing that movie a million years ago but didn't know it was him.

So much to learn, so little time!!

Oh yeah, and didn't that little owl thingie in Clash of theTitans remind you of the Golden Snitch...or vice versa?
