A reader emailed us an article from the London Evening Standard about John Hurt -confirmation of his casting as Mr. Ollivander:

Hurt has two children, 11 and eight, just the right age to take out of school and fly over to the set of the Harry Potter movie for a day, which he recently did.

When he was cast as Mr Ollivander, the moon-eyed wand seller in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, his son asked him: ‘How are you going to do the eyes? ‘
