Almost 17 years ago, JK Rowling’s magic hit the theatres in the form of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and it not only blew the box offices but the world too. The franchise continued to grow bigger and better after every release and as Potterheads, we cannot imagine someone else playing the roles of our favourite characters.
But, before the shooting of the movie started, some actors were asked to play certain characters in the franchise, but for some reasons they refused.
In this story, we’ve gathered the list of actors who turned down roles in the Harry Potter franchise.
Role – Professor Severus Snape
According to Tim Roth, he was asked to play the character of Professor Snape, but he turned it down so that he could be the part of Planet of the Apes.
