A Harry Potter actor is happy no one recognizes him anymore

The cast of Harry Potter is very famous all over the world. However, there is one actor in particular who stopped being recognized by the public and he is very happy with that result.

Harry Potter accompanied generations. As Tom Felton tries to get the cast together via video call to celebrate the anniversary, there is an actor who is happy not to be recognized by the public and not to receive any attention from the fans. But who are we talking about? From a person who played a very hated character and who had a great physical change, for which he looks unrecognizable.

Harry Melling played Dudley Dursley in the Harry Potter films, the young man who lived with a famous wizard and made life impossible for him. Of course, he is a character that no fan wants. Since the premiere of the first tapes, the actor changed a lot physically to the point of being unrecognizable. For him, this change was a “blessing”: “I think it was something unconscious when it started to happen (his physical change). I went to acting school when I turned 18 and that's when the weight changed, not because of any necessity, but it just happened. And I've done a lot of things since acting school, a lot of theater. I think one of the blessings of this kind of moment in my life was the fact that I was not recognized. I had that story of being part of the movies, but I also felt like I had a chance to have a new beginning, which I think is useful.

A change that almost took him out of the saga

Due to this great change in weight, the actor was about to be replaced from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. Luckily, the team was able to solve it by fitting him with a prosthesis and a suit that maintained the resemblance he had Harry's cousin in the early tapes. "Everybody says it's fun to be bad, and I think there is a lot of truth in that," he commented about the character he played but adds: "I like to think that I'm not a devilish or malicious person in any way."
