10 Harry Potter Characters That Actually Exist In Real Life
The similarities are just magical.
What's better than seeing the Harry Potter characters on screen? Seeing them in real life, of course. As happens with mass popularity for all things famous, JK Rowling's world of Harry Potter has taken on a following of millions, appealing to adults and children of all ages. With fans worldwide, the HP following has grown into something even Rowling herself didn't expect. And some of the fans are just a little bit crazy. Like the fan of Potter who actually wants to be Harry. Or the individual who is truly convinced they are a true born wizard. They exist, you know. You might not know them, but they're out there in the real world. You might call them loyal, you might call them deluded. They're certainly entertaining. There are also plenty of celebrities who have been acknowledged as looking alike to some of the characters. For example, Hurly from the Lost series, who looks a bit like Hagrid (mainly because they both have so much hair). or Elijah Wood, who looks creepily like Daniel Radcliffe from certain angles. Sometimes though, you catch a glimpse of the odd person who might actually have no idea who Harry Potter even is, and accidentally just bears a resemblance to one of the characters. These individuals are a joy to behold, mainly because they look exactly like you favourite character and have little idea how excited you are. It's a rare spotting, to see a real-life Harry Potter character, and a moment to cherish for life.
