18 Crazy Facts You Have To Accept To Enjoy The Wizarding World Movies

18. Harry Doesn't Have His Mother's Eyes

Warner Bros. Pictures

It is often said to Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) that he looks very much like his father, but that he has his mother's eyes. This is a key part of Snape's (Alan Rickman) final scene, in which his last words are "Look at me. You have your mother's eyes." That line is beautiful, but here's the thing: Harry doesn't have his mother's eyes at all.

When the young Lily Potter (Ellie Darcey-Alden) is seen in Deathly Hallows Part 2, her eyes are a completely different colour from Harry's.

Obviously, this is a fairly minor goof in the grand scheme of things but it is still very distracting given how over-used the line about Harry having his mother's eyes (you can tell Harry gets fed up of hearing it) is throughout the series.
