If you had to pick your favorite scene from Harry Potter movies
what would it be & why? Mine would be Buckbeats flight from the 3rd movie, HP and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the scene is amazing visually and musically & shows the beauty and wonder of the magical world Harry lives in, & thats why this is my favorite scene in all the movies. i mean just look at the pure joy on harry's face.

Severus Snape is one of the best-known charaters in Harry Potter & was brought to life on screen by Alan Rickman>
The Hogwarts charater was based on one of author JK Rowling's teachers called John Nettleship,who was blissfully unaware he was the inspiration until the blockbuster films came out & his students, wife worked it out .
Rowling's mother worked as an assistant in the chemistry department under Nettleship. so its intriguing to wonder what the real prof, who died in 2011, made of the revelation that his fictional counterpart was in love with Harry's mum.?

Harrison ford's intrepid adventurer & archaeologist was inspiredby several real life adventurers, but most heavily by Hiram Bingham III.
The american academic, explorer, treasure hunter & politician was latin
america history professor at yale from 1907 to 1915.
He found the lost inca city of machu picchu in peru. In secret of the incas in 1954, Charlton Heston played Harry Steele , who explores machu picchu, clearly inspired by Bingham. Steele wore a distinctive brown floppy brimmed hat, which the makers of Raiders of the lost ark openly admitted to copying for their hero.
Saw this in the paper couple weeks ago, thought it was interesting.

It's hard to believe that Heath Ledger died five years ago, at age 28, having overdosed accidentally on a cocktail of prescription drugs in his apartment in Manhattan's SoHo.
The Australian talent had only reached the cusp of what looked to be a startlingly promising career, with breakthrough performances in "Brokeback Mountain" and "The Dark Knight." They were performances that compelled Daniel Day-Lewis to commemorate his life on Oprah and Christian Bale to break down onstage as recently as last year when remembering his co-star.
Ledger left behind daughter Matilda, now 7, with ex-girlfriend Michelle Williams, and a bevy of bittersweet memories. “I cut it for the one straight man who has ever liked short hair and I wear it in memorial of somebody who really loved it,” Williams explained in 2011 about her close-cropped hairdo, in reference to Ledger. And old flame Naomi Watts, who dated Ledger from 2002 to 2004, opened up a bit more: "He was a man who was completely full of joy, and there was a lot of laughing and affection," she told More magazine. "He was really a very special soul and made a great impact on my life -- and a great actor, but I know there was so much more to come. And it's a tragedy for his little daughter."
