Best known to the Wizarding World fandom as the man who plays Jacob Kowalski in the “Fantastic Beasts” films, Dan was kind enough to stop by for a chat on Episode 28 and Episode 96. Other notable appearances include his portrayal of Luke on “The Walking Dead” and of William Barfee in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, for which he won a Tony Award.
Chris is not only a Potter fan, but he also played Percy Weasley in the “Harry Potter” films. (You may have seen him as one of the special guests at MuggleNet Live in 2017.) More recently, Chris has been working as a production assistant on shows like “Downton Abbey” and “A Discovery of Witches”. He was also our special guest on Episode 86!
James’s largest claim-to-fame in the Wizarding World Universe is his portrayal of Frank Longbottom in “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.” However, James now works as a stand-in on the “Fantastic Beasts” films, and we were lucky enough to talk to him about his experiences on set in Episode 76. (You may also recognize him as Hitler from “Captain America: The First Avenger”, a role he hopes he can reprise in a future Beasts film.)
