“Potter” Alumni Take Over the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival

When you’ve got eight movies in a series, and three films set to be a part of an upcoming spin-off, that’s a lot of actors and actresses to keep track of – but we wouldn’t have it any other way! This year, the Toronto International Film Festival is featuring no fewer than 12 films that “Harry Potter” alumni and “Fantastic Beasts” cast members are a part of.

“Potter” stars’ “Paddington” statues help raise over $1.4 million for charity!

We previously posted that “Potter” stars Emma Watson and Julie Waters, as well as British audiobook narrator Stephen Fry, had designed bears for the Paddington Trail, a charity effort where celebrities designed bears that were placed around London and later auctioned for charity. In December, “Potter” producer David Heyman, who also served as the producer for “Paddington”, hosted an auction at Christie’s to auction off 15 of these lively statues to benefit the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. An additional online auction was also hosted, together raising over $1.4 million for the charity.
