HP facts: 5 things you didn’t know – Dumbledore


  1. Apperntly, one of Dumbledore’s greatest achievements was discovering the twelve uses of dragon blood. The only one we’re told about however is that it’s a fantastic oven cleaner.
  2. Dumbledore’s animagus form is a swan!
  3. The character of Dumbledore was played in the first two films by Richard Harris. Sadly however, Harris died after filming The Chamber of Secrets, so the role was then given to Michael Gambon. But a third actor has also played the great wizard – Toby Regbo. If that name doesn’t ring any bells, you can be forgiven – he played a very young Dumbledore in The Deathly Hallows Part One.
  4. Richard Harris knew his health was on the wane when he accepted the role. He did so reluctantly, knowing he would probably not live to play Dumbledore throughout the whole series. The reason he took the job on was because his granddaughter (who was aged eleven at the time) threatened never to speak to him again if he didn’t take it!
  5. If you think of great film wizards, one of the first that probably comes to mind is that of Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings series. Gandalf was played by Sir Ian McKellen, who was actually offered Dumbledore’s role after Harris died. He turned it down however for two reasons. Firstly because he felt it was to similar to his other most famous fantasy outing, and secondly because Harris had called him a ”dreadful actor” before his death!

    Var i böckerna nämns det att Dumbledore är en svan-animagus?

      Värt att veta är att all information framkommer inte i böckerna!
