Harry Potter hit its 20th Anniversary this week, and a lot of people related to the beloved books and film franchise have spoken out to share their love and affection for the various Harry Potter projects they have taken part in. One of those people was none other than Dancing with the Stars judge Julianne Hough, who posted a throwback photo to her time on the set of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Check it out.
Yup, back when Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was being filmed for its 2001 release, Julianne Hough got involved with the production as an extra. At the time both Julianne Hough and her brother Derek were child actors, and they were living in England, where the Harry Potter franchise movies were filmed. Both siblings appeared in the film, although while Julianne was front and center in Gryffindor, Derek was relegated to Ravenclaw, and he later stole some of his Ravenclaw gear from the set. As for Hough, she dished to her Instagram followers that she apparently loved flirting with the Weasley twins.
Although Hough wasn't famous at the time she's still pretty recognizable in the image above, compared to some recent shots from Dancing with the Stars.
I remember there was a Great Hall scene where we were eating breakfast, and I remember: I ate like seven or eight full English breakfasts because I didn't realize that you kind of just fake it and maybe take a little bit of a bite. And each take, I'd eat the whole thing! I was like, 'There has to be continuity!' -- even at 10 years old I was thinking that. Anyway, it was the worst -- I remember being so sick.
Poor gal. Despite making herself sick, her latest post seems to indicate she still has a lot of fond memories from the set of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. She's not the only person who has celebrated the big 20th Anniversary. J.K. Rowling really kicked things off, and even the cast of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child got in on the fun.
