Harry Potter Actors' LEAST Favorite Scenes To Film

  • Published on:  8/20/2021
  • While living at Hogwarts and soaring through the air on flying broomsticks might seem like the most exciting and memorable experiences, the truth is the actors on the Harry Potter film sets didn’t always have such a great experience bringing magic to the screen.

    Ron actor had to face his real life fear - spiders! Like his character, Grant suffers arachnophobia. The underwater scenes look cool on screen - both figuratively AND literally. When filming during some of the coldest months of the year, the actors often found themselves freezing in water, feeling absolutely miserable. Rupert Grint felt so unwell once, he thought his heart had stopped beating and Daniel Radcliffe dealt with two ear infections! Let’s be honest, we’ve all wanted to mount a flying broom and try our hand at Quidditch, but hearing from those who’ve actually experienced the wizarding world sport changes how keen we are to try. The actors hated having to film those scenes as they all found themselves in lots of pain and winding up with “numb bums.”
    In the later films as the characters are growing up, the content gets a bit more mature and kissing becomes more common. The actors, who’d all known each other for years and had very family-like relationships with each other dreaded filming these kissing scenes. Instead of being romantic, they were usually just very awkward. Having a whole crowd of people watching and filming very up close probably didn’t help matters either. The Room of Requirement may be a brilliant saviour for the witches and wizards throughout the series, but filming in the room wasn’t the best for the actors. Some actors were left feeling hysterical from claustrophobia and others were overheating - yikes!
