Several Harry Potter film cast members have donated their artistic talents to charity. In order to raise funds for the Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths, cast members drew original Christmas cards to be sold at auction. Actor Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore) “has sketched a grumpy looking Santa Claus with the words ‘Father Christmas After Paying the Congestion Charge’.”
Other actors contributing are Robbie Coltrane( Hagrid) who drew this card with the Christmas Star (seen on right hand side). Other Harry Potter actors contributing to this cause are Kenneth Branagh(Prof. Lockhart),Emma Thompson( Prof. Trelawney), and Zoe Wanamaker( Mdme Hooch). The cards will be auctioned off on November 15th in Kensington Town Hall, London, England.
