Davis

For the over 15,000 of us who follow actor Warwick Davis on his official Twitter, we gained some insight on the change in appearance his character of Professor Flitwick has experienced during the course of the Harry Potter series. While we have heard some of this previous, Warwick Davis offered the following in a series of tweets this morning:
.So many of you
have asked me the ‘New look Flitwick’ question, so I will answer it
here, once and for all. When it came time to shoot
‘Azkaban’, there was no mention of ‘Flitwick” in the script. However, the producer still wanted me to be in the movie so he asked if I would play the role of ‘Choir Master’. Of course, I said ‘yes’. When it came time to shoot ‘Goblet of Fire’ the director,
Michael Newell said he liked the look of the choir master, and from
that moment, the character became known as ‘Flitwick’.
And that’s all
there is to it. Not that interesting really, is it? Let’s have a quick
show of Tweets – Old ‘Flitwick’ or New ‘Flitwick”?

What say you? Feel free to weigh in the comments below. As a reminder too that as we first posted last month, fans will see a deleted scene with Flitwick and the choir on the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD. Warwick Davis will be see in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movies as both “Flitwick” and “Griphook,” and will be filming his role in the very near days.
