Harry Potter Look-a-Like Search!
Warner Bros. was looking for British kids, 9-11 years old, to star in the new Harry Potter movie, which is due out in the theatres sometime next Fall of 2001. They say "Brits only" will be cast as Harry but Peaches Ehrich (librarian for the Troke Branch Library in Stockton, CA) says "I'm sure there are a lot of Harry Potters here in our neck of the woods." Two and a half month old Trevor Janson's picture was in The Record for the baby version of Harry Potter. He wore glasses, a scar was drawn on his forehead and a pretend note was pined to him and it said: "Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, #4 privet Drive."
John Theil (10) won the contest for looking like Ron. The Record calls him "Gangly red Haired Ron." Zoey Ryan,12, won the contest for being Hermione. She says she's rather good at her British accent, she does have large front teeth and she's "quite bossy." Nicole Croom's picture and essay were also in the Record. She was close to winning, but didn't quiet make it. She says she has bushy brown hair, large front teeth, wears glasses and is smart. Dennis Prock (10 years old) wrote how much he loves Harry Potter books. He says he can relate to Harry because he likes to have adventures with his friends. Sebastian Ross writes about how much he wants to be the Harry Potter look-a-like. He says:"I want the part more than Harry wanted a Firebolt."
The winner for the Harry Potter look-a-like contest was Cody Swanson. He says he small for his age like Harry. Other Harry Potter fans/look-a-likes like Nicky Griffen, Patrick Freeman and Joseph Duarte all say how well J.K. Rowling describes different things in her books. Lasey Swanson says the books help her expand her imagination.
