12 Celebrities You Forgot Were In The Harry Potter Films
It has now been nine years since the last Harry Potter book was released and almost five years since the last Harry Potter film came out, and in that time actors and actresses who appeared in small roles have become known for other things. Some stars had such small roles you barely have time to notice them, others just seem so different in their new roles, you can’t even remember it is the same person who was in Harry Potter. Either way, check out 12 celebrities you forgot appeared in the Harry Potter films!
12. Dancing With the Stars Pros
Believe it or not Mark Ballas, Derek Hough and Julianne Hough all appeared in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Their roles were so small they went as uncredited extras, but all three stars, now widely known as pros from the hit show Dancing With the Stars, were there! Ballas had a role as a Hufflepuff student in the Great Hall. Derek Hough was a Ravenclaw student in the background in a scene where Ron and Harry are playing Wizard’s Chess. Julianne got to be a Gryffindor and even sent Daniel Radcliffe a love note on set, but never heard back.
11. Robert Pattinson
By now the connection has definitely been made between Twilight star Robert Pattinson appearing in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 2005 as Cedric Diggory, three years before the first Twilight movie came out. While Cedric Diggory was written as an outstanding wizard and extremely good-looking, many did take notice of him in Harry Potter; however, the role was quickly forgotten and overshadowed by his lead role as Edward Cullen in Twilight.
