Jack Whitehall has revealed details of his failed audition for the ‘Harry Potter’ movie.
The ‘Jungle Cruise’ actor tried to make a name for himself as an actor with a role in the blockbuster wizarding franchise early in his career, but admitted he didn’t have a chance to get the role because he hadn’t even read J.K. Rowling’s book.
The comedian told Collider: “I was taken to this audition by my parents and they said, please don’t mess this up, this could be a huge career opportunity for you as a child actor.” The 33-year-old star then joked that he was “[sein] Best and in the end they decided that Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) was better for the role [war].” Jack added, “They started asking me a lot of questions. [dem Buch] and I hadn’t finished reading the book at that point. That didn’t go down very well. I think I started talking about goblins and elves and the like and I was a little confused.” After appearing alongside Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt in Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’, the British star will also be seen alongside Hollywood star Shailene Woodley in ‘Robots’.
