Harry Potter Moment of the Week (154)

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme created by Uncorked Thoughts and hosted by Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/films/J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! A list of upcoming topics can be found here.

This week's topic is:
Which Cast Member Do You Think Should Have Been Played by Someone Else?

I'll always be amazed by the incredible amount of acting talent in the HP films. I mean, it still boggles my mind! I can't think of anyone who was terribly miscast, but I have harped on Michael Gambon's Dumbledore in Goblet of Fire, when Dumbledore confronts Harry after the Goblet spits out Harry's name. The image of Dumbledore yelling at Harry kind of got stuck in my head, and I'm still a little traumatized by Mean Dumbledore every time I watch GoF, LOL.


  1. Yup! You KNOW I agree with you here^^ I think Gambon's performance irked me more than it did you though - even when he's calm and NOT spitting (LOL) his portrayl is still lacking for me. He simply isn't Dumbledore-ish enough me.

    1. Richard Harris will always be Dumbledore for me. ♥ I thought Gambon was OK in most of the films he was in, but ughhhhh . . . GoF, lol!

  2. Yes, I have to agree with you on the 'mean' Dumbledore front. In my opinion, whilst the casting for the HP films was great and the actors did an amazing job in bringing the characters we all know and love to life on the screen, I kind of think Robert Pattinson's Cedric Diggory was a bit...meh? (don't hate me, lol). I mean, maybe I'm a little biased because everytime I see him I'm reminded of Twilight, but still...I just think that the Movie Cedric wasn't half as intriguing and appealing as Book Cedric.

    1. With the book being so big and so much having to be packed into one film, I felt movie Cedric and the other champions just didn't have a whole lot to do except show up for the tasks, lol.

      When the Twilight movie came out, I had no idea about any of it, lol, and when I saw the trailer on TV, I was like, isn't that Cedric Diggory? XD
