The "Harry Potter" cast first began their Hogwarts journey as children in "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone."  "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets",

"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban", "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire", "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix", "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince", "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow - Part 1" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow - Part 2" takes the youthful wizards through a storyline that only J.K. Rowlings, author of the "Harry Potter" book series, could describe.  From book to the big screen, the "Harry Potter" cast keeps Hogwarts safe and Harry Potter alive.  Who are some of these crafty cast members appearing within the last release of eight Harry Potter movies?  Harry Potter's best friends and family.

Daniel Radcliff

Has had a large following since Harry Potter began.  In eight movies, Harry Potter faces dark forces, an invisibility cloak malfunction, a mirror offering false hope, Myrtle the stall ghost, Quidditch, Death Eaters, and a nasty yet popular lightning bolt scar on his head.  By the time you watch the last movie Harry Potter reaches his young adult age with two best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermoine Granger.  Lord Voldemort lives to kill Harry Potter's future and Harry's posse pulls it together to save the "chosen" one.  Daniel Radcliffe's past performances outside of Harry Potter included his film debut in "The Tailor of Panama", his role as Maps in "December Boys", and his role as Auther Kipp in "The Woman in Black."  Daniel has also won multiple awards in and out of Harry Potter.

Rupert Grint

Is the hot read head all the young girls are falling over to get to.  Just as Harry, Ron Weasley is not a stupid guy yet can be quite annoying with the off and on inner whimpering over Hermoine, the potential girl for him.  Ron is the Shaun White of the Harry Potter series, but not by hair color alone.  Rupert Grint has multiple levels of skill and can dish up a swanky attitude as seen in Harry Potter.  Rupert Grint took on roles such as Alan A. Allen in "Thunderpants" and Ben Marshall in "Driving Lessons" outside of his work in the "Harry Potter" movies.

Emma Watson

Hermoine Granger is as cute as ever and she's not a little snotty know it all anymore.  She's a big snotty know it all.  But her beauty, intelligence, and inner strength never seems to overcome the knowledge of her parents being Muggles, of non-magical blood.  Hermoine Granger takes herself as serious in the end just as she did from the beginning.  She could turn a boy into a frog if she really wanted to.  Better watch out Ron Weasley!  Aside from her work in the "Harry Potter" series, Emma Watson portrayed Pauline Fossil in "Ballet Shoes" and did the voice of Princess Pea in "The Tale of Despereaux."  However, her strengths as an actor remains as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter.

Gary Oldman

Plays Sirius Black and is the dead godfather of Harry Potter.  Sirius Black was killed by LeStrange in an earlier Harry Potter release but makes his reappearance.  Gary Oldman is one of the most talented actors with a line of great films.  But Oldman's dark side of light hearted features pretty much matches the usual way he carries himself.  Meaning, good call on casting.  He has been acting since the early 80's and is known for his performances in such well known films as "JFK", "Dracula", and "True Romance", to name a few. Gary Oldman has won more awards than any other Harry Potter cast member outside of Harry Potter films.  He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban."
