The actor who plays Argus Filch in the Harry Potter film is helping raise money to save York City (from Ananova).

Good things come in small packages. Especially when they’re in big movies. Not since Dorothy rudely dropped in on the Munchkins have there been so many high-profile opportunities for actors who are short of stature but long on talent. A resurgence of the adventure fantasies has created a job boom for “little people,” the term preferred by those who used to be called dwarfs and midgets. They enhance the screen magic as banker goblins – a total of 56 – in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and as hobbit doubles in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and its upcoming sequels.
