10 Weird Wizardly Tales Of Harry Potter

Mischief was not always managed.

  1. 1

    The wardrobe department had to sew the pockets shut in the robes because the kids kept sneaking snacks in them.

    Acting is hungry work, though.

  2. 2

    When J.K. Rowling came up with the Hogwart's Houses, she wrote them on an airplane barf bag.

    Of course it was UNUSED. But that would explain the word "HufflePuff," wouldn't it?

  3. 3

    Rupert Grint won his role via rap battle.

    Grint sent the casting directors a video of himself rapping about how much he wanted the part. So, it wasn't really a battle, but a cry for attention, but it worked!

  4. 4

    J.K. Rowling gave Daniel Radcliffe a spoiler about his fate... sort of...

    When he asked her, "Do I die?" She told him, "You get a death scene."

  5. 5

    By contract, the young actors in the movies were not allowed to play contact sports, so they played golf.

    Which is safe, as long as you don't play with the Weasley twins.

  6. 6

    Helena Bonham Carter kept an odd souvenir from the set.

    She took Bellatrix's teeth home with her, and she keeps them in her bathroom -- which is only fair. Wearing them in the first place was her idea.

  7. 7

    Speaking of Helena, she has a wand at home that she uses to scare children.

    The ones she doesn't particularly like, anyways.

  8. 8

    British comedian, Rik Mayall, didn't tell his kids that his character, Peeves, was cut from the film, so they assumed he played Hagrid.

    Seems legit.

  9. 9

    Dumbledore had a thing for bad boys.

    J. K. Rowling revealed that he had fallen in love with the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald, saying, "He fell very hard for this boy ... And don’t you think it was perfect that Dumbledore, who is always the great champion of love … his one great experience of love was utterly tragic."

  10. 10

    Michael Gambon and Alan Rickman are a couple of stinkers.

    Watch Daniel's face when he realizes who played the prank on him.
