12 Harry Potter Actors Who Were Replaced In The Sequels

10. Peter Cartwright - Elphias Doge

Warner Bros.

The Replacement: David Ryall

The character who inspired a hundred Doge meme jokes was first played by British TV veteran Peter Cartwright in The Order Of The Phoenix in 2007. He was one of the Advance Guard who turned up at Privet Drive to escort Harry to Grimmauld Place - a largely forgotten role, without any lines.

By the time the character was required to speak in The Deathly Hallows Part 1, he had been replaced by David Ryall, another veteran.

Both actors have sadly died since their appearances: Cartwright passed away in 2013 and Ryall in 2014.
