The head of Warner Bros. Discovery David Zaslav spoke about the company’s desire to return to its most popular and profitable franchises, including Harry Potter. He noted that in order to start production, it is necessary to agree on the terms of cooperation with controversial creator J.K. Rowling.
David Zaslav stressed that the idea of returning to “Harry Potter” is his personal initiative, reports The Hollywood Reporter. The conflict with J. K. Rowling began after several statements by the writer on social networks. “Harry Potter’s Mom” wasn’t even invited to record a special Christmas episode.
Later, J.K. Rowling herself said that she herself refused the offer to star in a special Christmas episode, which was dedicated to the 20th anniversary of “Harry Potter”. The writer said that she did not want to appear in the show, because it was not about a series of books, but about a movie.
The performer of the role of Draco Malfoy, Thomas Felton, told an interesting detail about Daniel Radcliffe in his memoirs about filming in the Harry Potter franchise. It turned out that the actor used a photo of Cameron Diaz to successfully work on episodes of the Quidditch match.
Thomas Felton clarified that his colleague on the set did it for concentration. The actors had to control their gaze and direct it to certain places in order to look convincing in the frame. Separate balls were chosen for each Quidditch shoot participant, with Daniel Radcliffe sticking a photo of Cameron Diaz on his. She was his favorite actress.
