Requirements for Harry Potter Actors

You have to be British or Irish to try out. Anyone with a speaking

part is going to have to speak with a British accent, other

countries have their own wizard schools so the students at Hogwarts

would be British, and they are not going to bring extras from

another country when there are thousands of kids here at theater


In an interview, Rowling explained how it wouldn't be very

practical to put an American actor or other foreign actor when the

character is British.

Even if she did allow it. It costs a lot of money to fly actors

in and keep them living here. It would be cheaper for them to use

British actors anyway.

There are no more auditions for the Harry Potter films as filming

has been completed.

There have been some exceptions;

  • Stanislav Ianevski who played Viktor Krum was born Sofia,

    Bulgaria but his character came from Bulgaria so that made


  • Clemence Poesy who played Fleur Delacour was born in French but

    once again her character was French.

  • Zoe Wanamaker who played Madam Hooch was born in America but

    had been acting in Britain for a long time and her character was an

    adult which meant it was likely she would travel for work or move


  • Christopher Columbus - the director of the first two films -

    put several of his family members into the films. All of them were

    American however they did not have speaking roles.

  • Rade Serbedzija will play Gregorovitch in Deathly Hallows is

    from Croatia but once again his character is a foreign wand maker

    who is never shown in Britain in the films.
