“Entertainment Weekly” features James and Oliver Phelps NYC Visit

Last weekend, the Phelps twins visited the Harry Potter exhibit in New York to meet fans and sign autographs. While there they fielded questions from Entertainment Weekly, discussing some of their favorite Potter memories-as well as revealing some amusing anecdotes from their Exhibition visit:

“One girl came in with a toilet seat,” James says, in honor of their characters’ penchant for blowing up toilets in the books. “I’d love to have seen her just walking through Times Square carrying a toilet seat.” Jokes Oliver: “I don’t know if it was screwed on, or if she bought it on the way here.” Either way, they signed it, and they agree the bar has now been raised.

I have a feeling that this won’t be the last toilet seat the pair is asked to sign! Read the full interview here and don’t forget to check out MuggleNet’s Exhibition Page for fan reports on the twins’ visit!

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
