Being a huge Harry Potter fan, I love learning about all of the fun facts about the Harry Potter movies. They have been a huge part of my life, but I sometimes forget about all of the work that has gone into making these incredible movies. The actors were mainly children, and they were not afraid to pull some pranks on set. Some of the production took hours to create the magic you see on screen. Here of some of my personal favorite fun facts about the Harry Potter movies.
One of the most surprising fun facts about the Harry Potter movies is the age of the actress who played Moaning Myrtle. Shirley Henderson, who portrayed Moaning Myrtle in the movies, was 37 when she first appeared in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.” That makes her 24 years older than her costar Daniel Radcliffe, and the oldest actress to portray a Hogwarts student.
