Why did Emily Dale only play Katie Bell in the first two Harry Potter movies?

Katie Bell was only given a minor role in the first few films and it is possible that Emily Dale was only a named extra. Katie Bell was not in the following three movies so when the time came for the role to be cast for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, they decided to recast the role.

This might be because Emily Dale was unavailable or because the casting directors wanted somebody else.

Who is the antagonist in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets?

The primary antagonist of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is Lord Voldemort - but a memory of himself when he was known by his given name of Tom Riddle.

He controlled Ginny Weasley through a diary which was slipped into one of her books by Lucius Malfoy at Flourish and Blotts. The diary was a Horcux and as soon as Ginny began to tell her secrets to the diary and put her trust into it, Tom Riddle could possess her.

Riddle, through Ginny, re-opened the Chamber of Secrets, a legacy of Salazar Slytherin, and set a Basilik upon people he considered to be unworthy to remain at Hogwarts e.g. muggle-borns or those not of pure wizarding blood.

Through Ginny, he also found out about his future self's destruction at the hands of Harry Potter. Tom then tried to return as a fully functioning person by transferring life from Ginny to himself thwarted, of course, by Harry Potter.

How tall was Harry Potter at age twelve?

Harry's height isn't specified but it was mostly likely below the average since in the first book, he was described as "small and skinny" for his age. This was probably due to the Dursley's neglect throughout his childhood. However, at age seventeen he had become the same height as his father who was said to be tall, so it is likely that puberty and some good meals at Hogwarts helped him.
