Potter's New Dumbledore Gets Rave Review From Co-Star
Norwich, England -- "Harry Potter" fans are waiting with baited breath to see how Michael Gambon fills the shoes of Professor Dumbledore, the character recast after original actor Richard Harris died.
They'll have to wait until "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" arrives in theaters next summer, but until then, they can rest assured that at least one cast member thinks Gambon does a better job than Harris.
That actor is Chris Rankin, who plays Ron Weasley's fussy older brother Percy, and appears opposite Gambon in the upcoming film.
The 20-year-old says although the two actors "look virtually the same" in their gray beards and long hair, he prefers Gambon's portrayal of the wizard because it's "a bit more how I imagine Dumbledore to be from the books."
"Richard played it with a twinkle in his eyes -- a sort of nice headmaster thing, whereas Michael is going for the slightly crazy Dumbledore," Rankin says.
