There are always new things to learn about the Harry Potter universe! Today we reveal why Robin Williams could not play in the saga.
Regularly new information about the saga Harry Potter out on the Web, whether it comes from the author JK Rowling and elsewhere, it is always good to learn more! Last week you could find five amazing things you may not know about McGonagall Harry Potter , now replaced by another info size. With 8 movies on the counter, the Harry Potter saga has experienced a casting very provided and many actors and actresses have wanted to participate in the films over the years. Only everyone has not had that chance. At the beginning of the production Robin Williams was strongly interested in the project and especially to play a character in particular. It is the half-giant Hagrid embodied by Robbie Coltrane in the movies! But why was not the actor found in cinematographic adaptations? A failed cast?
It’s quite different, the actor’s essays were good! As you can see the cast of Harry Potter is made up of British and unfortunately Robin Williams is American. The casting director of the time Janet Hirshenson was explained during an interview with the Huffington Post: “Robin had called because he really wanted to be in the film, but there was about to do a British cast . once the director Chris Columbus had said no, he was not going to say yes to someone else ” .

Remember that the actors of the Harry Potter saga will soon be in Paris! A golden opportunity for fans not to miss. Will Robin Williams have been a good choice?
