"Potter" Career

Before getting involved with the Harry Potter film franchise, Alfonso he had never read any of the books and was skeptical about working on a film that would be so huge and involved with special effects.

…I had a telephone conversation with my good friend director Guillermo del Toro, and I told him they had sent me these books, but I didn’t know… And he said, ‘Are you crazy; have you read them?’ I told him I hadn’t, and he said, ‘Don’t be stupid; read them immediately.’

Alfonso read the books and then became the director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which may be the most controversial film of the eight among Potter fans.
