Harry Potter Thursday is a meme of the week created and hosted by Uncorked Thoughts. Each week is a different question pertaining to the world of Harry Potter. You can find the questions here.
Richard Harris is, without a doubt, not only my favorite Dumbledore but also my favorite actor from the Harry Potter film franchise.
It was a sad event when I learned of his passing back around the time when Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was due to release in theaters. As I understand it, he never got to see the final film, which was even sadder. I thought that he embodied Dumbledore perfectly in the two films that he did get to do. His wise old wizard character was funny, endearing, and just so whimsical. I would have loved to see what Richard would have done with the character in the later movies, especially that scene in Goblet of Fire (you all know which one I’m TALKING ABOUT!!! *calmly*).
One of the funniest things I remember hearing about Richard Harris and his role was that he wasn’t going to take it until his daughter or granddaughter said that she would never talk to him again unless he did, she loved the books so much. *lol* What a man.
