Places you have been relating to Harry Potter


Have you been anywhere or seen anything related to either the HP books or films?
Have you met any of the actors of HP films?

If you have discuss them here and post your photos here
(thumbnails, small images or links pease, no huge images)



On our recent holiday we went to Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire where part of the first two films where set in the cloisters. I have photos but as my computer is playing up I havent been able to upload them yet but I will do so as soon as I can!

Images from the website not from my camera:

Lacock Abbey

Remember one scene in the snow??

The cloisters! I walked there! This is where HP was filmed


That cauldron is still there!





I will upload my own photos as soon as I can and you will see little ol me and little elf and mick right in those cloisters!!

A few years ago when they were filming Goblet of Fire, my sister and I went to Oxford to try and track down where they were shooting.

We were pretty unsuccessful - seeing only the security people mostly. However, we did see some people walk past in Slytherin robes and with brooms, and someone from afar that we were sure was Tom Felton.

The robed people: http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif
Tom Felton? http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

That's it haha

Well, the best thing I have (which is actually huge to me) is that I got to meet Emerson Spartz. My ex has a picture, but there's no way to get it off the phone. Anyway, for those who may not know, he is the founder of mugglenet.com. He's also from a town only about 25 minutes from where I live. He's one of my role models. Anyway...

I went to England and Scotland a few years ago and saw a few places where it was filmed

That place Elife went, Lackock? TOTALLY went there hehe

And the place with the stairs they walked on in the first movie, before they went into the Great Hall? I'm blanking on the name... I think it's a cathedral of some sort? Somebody help me out... I can't remember...

Pickels does everyone mither her with questions? I would probably do it all the time.

And as for me I haven't met any of them. We did go on a school trip to where some of the countryside scenes were filmed. Everyone knowing how obessed I was the teacher told us on the coach and laughed saying he knew I would scream when I did.

Eh... well, when Bonnie Wright and Katie Leung (please say I got the names right!!! xD) went to different places, promoting Order of the Phoenix, and they came to Finland - well, they were literally on my backyard.

Kinda.

The mall, or rather the centre of Helsinki (where all the cinemas are etc..) was just eight floors down, atleast it used to be when I lived with Calle and Heidi in Helsinki - it was pretty cool :D

Of course, me being very childish, couldn't agree on Calle's safety terms and stay on our balcony and watch, but I had to run downstairs and wait for hours for them xD

...it only ended with me being squashed by reporters with horrible English.

Mwehh.

haha, do people really not know the difference between Harry Potter and Daniel Radcliffe? haha. Show them a pic from Dans next musical XD (censor it, if you have to) they will get the picture.

As for me, I have not been anywhere regarding Harry Potter movies, but I did see Helena Bonham Carter once! It was so awesome. I kept my distance though, cause she was on the other side of the street, and I didnt want to be seen as the crazy fan they call security on... haha.

well I haven't ever been anywhere that has to do with harry potter. I have the time turner and the maurauders map, both replica's from the movies, which my mom bought for me from warner brothers.

My cousin Alyssa's boyfriend, Ryan looks like Krum. You know how Krum is hot and buff? Ryan is hotter and buffer!! He's very dreamy, and I get to talk to him! ALso, Alyssa's sister Adrian....her husband, Brian, looks like Draco, with a buzz cut though. Cute also....and that's as exciting as my HP reality comes

I haven't actually seen/met anyone, but two of my teachers at school remind me of Hogwarts professors.

There's an English teacher, Mr. Newman, who looks exactly how I imagined Remus Lupin. (Seriously, I have to concentrate on calling him by his real name!) Oh, and his first name's John, so.... similarity!

Then there's Mr. Bettencourt, a history teacher. His personality reminds me of Severus Snape so much! He's a hard-ass, assigns way too much homework, has no tolerance for stupidity, and he doesn't smile. (In class that is...) But he is also like fanfic Snape, because he can have a sense of humor and be a good guy. I say hi to him everyday just to see what his response is. It's usually, get this, "Miss Ring" and a slight nod. Haha. And since I'm graduating this year, I'm thinking about telling him that I think he's like Snape. It'd probably make his day, considering he's a huge HP fan!

Mr. Bettencourt's wife also work at my school and she's just awesome because she let us read HP 7 for summer homework!

Haha, I would have a spazz attack and accidently call him Slughorn or something...hehee. I don't know if this counts, but I've met Darren Criss who played Harry in A Very Potter Musical and I've been to parts of England where they've filmed...other than that, nothing else...unless you count the Wizarding World. xD

I've been on the Jacobite aka the Hogwarts Express. And you know they always go over a bridge over a valley, thats the Glenfinnan Viaduct and the train went over it.

Now I think about it personalitywise my geography teacher is awfully like Umbridge. I'm going to stuggle not to call her that now.

Kenneth Brannaugh was filming in my city a few years back. I was driving by after running errands and stopped at a red light. I looked over and there he was, in costume, texting... I tried so hard to act normal and sane....then the guy behind me honked because the light was green again. Oh well. I was excited. He is one of my favorite actors and I truly look up to him.

I went past the cafe that JK Rowling wrote Philosephers Stone in but it was too crowded to go in.
