Behind The Scenes Of Harry Potter Cast Auditions As Child Stars Subscribe: Hey Potterheads! Today on TheThings we’re taking a trip back to the year 2000 when the casting for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone first kicked off. It’s hard to believe it’s been more than two decades since the start of the franchise but even more difficult to believe that the Harry Potter cast we know and love was almost completely different. We’re not kidding! The Harry Potter actors have very unconventional casting stories, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. From chance meetings at the theater to casting directors scouring London primary schools – it’s so interesting to hear these actor’s individuals stories. And a little startling to find out that some of the cast members weren’t the first choice for their roles. We’re pretty sure you’ll have a hard time believing how these actors got their roles – it’s wild. Did you know that the Phelps twins had no idea who they were cast as until the first day on set? Or that Tom Felton originally auditioned for two other roles before landing Draco Malfoy? We’ll be covering almost the entire cast from Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson all the way to Alan Rickman, Tom Felton, and Helena Bonham Carter. The paths to getting the cast we see on our screens today may have been unconventional but we wouldn’t have it any other way. What audition story did you find the most interesting?
