Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Let’s look back at Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (or Philosopher’s Stone for you non-American readers). You gotta give Chris Columbus a lot of credit for that franchise. His entries aren’t my favorites of the series, but there’s no question he set the tone with the way he visualized JK Rowling’s universe and then there’s his superb casting. He found the perfect three kids for the leads and populated the adult cast with some of the best character actors working.
Two of them are in the below picture, the late Richard Harris as Dumbledor and Dame Maggie Smith as Professor McGonagall. I’m particularly a fan of Maggie Smith’s and wish she had a little bit more to do in the films, but what little time she has she milks.
