Child Refugee Wins Role in "Deathly Hallows: Part 1"

Harry Potter fan Margotu Margai, who led a difficult childhood in war-torn Sierra Leone, has now landed a role in "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" as a Hufflepuff student. Margai, who is nineteen, says of the experience:

"It’s so surreal. I’ve read all the books and seen all the Harry Potter films but I’m still trying to believe I’ve got a role in the film given the fact I could have been shot dead all those years ago. ...A soldier came into my house and looked straight at me – and the simply carried on walking. I’ll never forget the way he looked straight at me. Yet the other day I was just eating my lunch and got chatting to Daniel Radcliffe. It was only for a few minutes but he was really nice."

It is wonderful that he has earned this opportunity and I hope that he and all other refugees around the world have received and will continue to receive the support and compassion needed to rebuild their lives.

That’s wonderful – the power that Harry Potter has to move people and to transform lives through concrete action as well as through the imagination and the owed of love. Come to think of it, all good things that come to people who need help come through the power of love.
