Watching the nearly two-hour-long special show 'Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts', which aired on HBO on Saturday as the most beautiful New Year's gift to all franchise fans, the Potterheads, the emotions are mixed. Not only ours but also our favorite actors. Just as they and we laugh at some of their stories, so we are on the verge of tears at times.
Like a big, unusual family, gathered after many years, they tell various stories from their former history.
We thought some of them were just rumors, but it turns out – they are actually true.
Richard Harris (the First Dumbledore) Thought That The Phoenix In His Office Was A Real Bird, Not A Mechanical One
Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) Wanted To Steal His Magic Wand
Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange) Saved The Artificial Teeth, Which She Still Has
Emma Watson Was In Love With Tom Felton
The Kiss Between Emma Watson And Rupert Grint Was A Terrible Experience For Both Of Them, Because They Have Brother-sister Feelings For Each Other
Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort) Was Wearing A Skirt Under His Cloak, But We Never Saw That In The Movie, Which Makes This A Very Fun Scene
Emma Watson Had A Hamster Millie On Set
J.K. Rowling Admits Hard It Was To Find An Actor For The Role Of Harry, While Ron And Hermione Were Found Very Easily
Overall, this is the perfect gift for any Potterhead. It took us back to another time and gave us some stories to remember together. We certainly knew some of them, but there are also those we have just discovered.
