Making Magical Movies

On Thursday, 26 April, Christ’s Hospital is hosting an evening with Chris Rankin, the actor behind Wizard Percy Weasley, plus three special guests involved in creating everyone’s favourite magical world.

Chris Rankin was 16 years old when he sent off a letter asking for an audition to play Percy Weasley in ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’. He went on to play the role for 11 years.

Chris is a regular at Comic Cons and Events around the world, where he regularly meets with the fan community and speaks about his experiences in one of the most beloved and successful film franchises in cinema history.

In this special evening Chris will bring together other guests from the set, in a hosted panel, to talk about their stories and experiences of working on one of the best loved film franchises in recent history. Guests will be other performers or creatives involved on the productions (to be confirmed nearer to the event). There will be plenty of time for audience questions!

There will also be the opportunity to meet the guests after the Panel and Q & A session and obtain signatures on any items you wish (some items will be on sale on the night). For this, there is a separate charge of £5 if purchased in advance or £10 if purchased on the day.

Please note that this event is not affiliated with the Harry Potter franchise, J.K. Rowling or Warner Bros.
