Harry Potter's Oliver Phelps Had His 'Pinch Me' Moment During the First Table Read

Harry Potter's Oliver Phelps Had His 'Pinch Me' Moment During the First Table Read

Sometimes, you just know when magic is going to happen — which we figure that happened a lot on the set of Harry Potter.

Oliver Phelps, aka George Weasley, definitely had that moment — at at the first table read, no less!

In a recent interview, he opens up about all his “pinch me” moments he experienced and a few things the fans don’t know.

“I remember instantly, the first time we did the read-through. For me, that was one of the funniest bits to sit there and think, ‘Wow, we’re actually doing this.’ That was cool,” he shared.

Oliver adds, “In terms of stuff you don’t realize, there’s just lots of stuff. Playing football in the Great Hall, which I’m sure Warner Bros. wouldn’t like me talking about. Playing cricket on Privet Drive and things like that.”

Happy 20th Anniversary, Harry Potter!

Harry Potter's Oliver Phelps Says Meeting J.K. Rowling Was 'Intimidating'

Harry Potter's Oliver Phelps Says Meeting J.K. Rowling Was 'Intimidating'

Harry Potter‘s 20th Anniversary is here!

Can you believe it’s really been 20 years since the first book hit shelves? We can’t either.

In a recent interview, Oliver Phelps (he played George Weasley) opened up about meeting the author, J.K. Rowling on the set of the movies.

“She was probably the most intimidating person I’ve ever met in my life,” he confessed. “Not by any fault of her own, just by ? she made everything that we were doing.”

We can imagine that would be intimidating!

Oliver adds, “I remember we were in Rupert’s dressing room on one of the later films, and she came in and totally blindsided all of us. I think we were doing something silly, like, we were playing darts but with a crossbow or something not very mature.”

“She explained where the twins characters came from and where their influences are and stuff like that. I didn’t want to rock the boat too much and ask, ‘Well, what do they do afterwards … what does one of them do afterwards?’ But it was quite interesting learning the backstories and where the characters came from.”

TELL JJJ: Are you a books or movie Harry Potter person?

'Harry Potter' Star Oliver Phelps Finally Answers Our Peter Pettigrew/Scabbers Question

Oliver Phelps and his twin bro James famously played twins George and Fred Weasley in the Harry Potter movies.

In a recent interview with The Huffington Post, Oliver finally answered the question that all HP fans everywhere wanted to ask:

Why didn’t the twins, or any of the Weasley family, notice that Ron’s rat was Peter Pettigrew?

They did have the Marauder’s Map, which is able to show the location of each person in Hogwarts.

“Maybe it’s a boo in the family that no one talks of. ‘Who’s this Peter bloke?’” Oliver shared, offering up an explanation of sorts.

He adds, “Maybe it was an unspoken word in the Weasley’s family.”

Hmmm…calling up J.K. Rowling right now!

Evanna picked out Harry’s parents, Lily and James: “We only get flashes of them in the books…I’d love to know what kind of people they were and what they were like.”

Bonnie Wright, Matthew Lewis, & More 'Harry Potter' Stars Speak Out After Alan Rickman's Death

Bonnie Wright has released a touching statement regarding the sudden death of her late Harry Potter co-star Alan Rickman.

The 24-year-old British actress, who starred as Ginny Weasley in the films, told JJJ, “As a young actor I was incredibly fortunate to have worked with Alan and be exposed to his graceful methods. He had that rare ability to shift the energy of a set the moment he walked on. I will never forget his deep, measured and theatrical voice. He will be missed by the Potter family.”

Meanwhile, Jamie Campbell Bower (Gellert Grindelwald), James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), and Warwick Davis (Griphook) also took to social media to share their memories of him.

Our thoughts remain with Alan‘s family and friends during this difficult time.
