A number of actors from the Harry Potter films have joined hundreds of celebrities taking part in National Doodle Day. Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Miriam Margolyes (Professor Sprout), Richard Griffiths (Uncle Dursley), Roger Lloyd Pack (Barty Crouch Sr.), Katie Leung (Cho Chang) and Oliver Phelps (George Weasley) are among the actors to auction off their doodles to help those suffering from epilepsy and neurofibromatosis. Speaking to The Telegraph about the auction, Margolyes said, “Doodling is something that we all do; so why not put it to good use and help raise money for a worthy cause.”

The National Doodle Day website, which you can find at this link, has a gallery of all of the donated doodles, including those of the actors from the Harry Potter series. The auction will start tomorrow, the 5th of March, on eBay.
