Notes

"Having seen Dan Radcliffe screen test, I don't think Chris Columbus could have found a better Harry.

"I wish Dan, [and co-stars] Emma [Watson] and Rupert [Grint] the very best of luck and hope they have as much fun acting the first year at Hogwarts as I had writing it." --author J K Rowling
