You will not be able to recognize the young Harry Potter teachers ...
We all have a past but not everyone has a mystery. In the subject of the actors who lent their image to the films of the Harry Potter series, we are surprised how they have changed over the years until now. We will begin with one of those that we consider should be at the top of this article, although unfortunately, is no longer present among us.
Alan Rickman, who gave life to Professor Severus Snape, was undoubtedly one of the most recognized. His role infused hate, pity, respect, fear and a whole amalgam of feelings that completed in respect and admiration towards the end of the saga. But there is no doubt that his performance was excellent because he knew how to convey a character that had nothing to do with his real personality. This actor left us forever at the beginning of 2016.

Imelda Staunton also had a commendable performance. Her character, Professor Umbridge, was definitely one of the most hated characters. Even if someone else was there on the list, it would only be He Who Must Not Be Named (Shhh...Voldermort). Be that as it may, this wonderful actress also had a crazy past and a very opera appearance. So many times for all and what has managed to evolve until now that was one of the most cheesy teachers in the entire saga.
Robbie Coltrane played the role of the good-natured Hogwarts guard, Hagrid. Although in reality, he measured up only to an inch of Rickman. His appearance always had to be uneventful in the movie.
How things change when we see him in his tender youth acting like a nobleman with a wig and vintage clothes. Maybe it was a play or drama? But we personally prefer him as the endearing half-breed in the Harry Potter series.
Argus Filch was never a teacher, not even a magician. But who was David Bradley? He was the actor who gave him the face of Argus. We can see that he was also a very attractive actor, very similar to one of the Beatles. Specifications of his role in the script were to end up being a disastrous concierge who never had an opportunity to perform simplest of spells. The hatred we profess to him may in his case be more the characterization than few of his dialogues.
Lockhart may have been one of the most rogue and dishonest among all the teachers. His performance was between good and bad but he managed to convey the sense of awkwardness that later executed to perfection. Undoubtedly he's one of the characters that happened with less glory of the whole saga, despite its success within the world of wizards and witches. Here we have an image of his past that brings us back to better times than Kenneth Branagh.
Gary Oldman is by far one of the actors with more recognition of the lot. He played a great role as the godfather of Harry, although we all remember him for his stellar appearance in the film Dracula. No doubt he is good at doing both good and bad. We know he was not a teacher, not even school staff, but we had to give him a chance to be on this list. And besides we all cried when he died in the Harry Potter movie. *goes and cries in a corner*
Maggie Smith is one of the best examples that we have. We never thought that old professor McGonagall could have been that attractive of a young woman in the past. Her mature appearance always held sympathy with all the spectators and perhaps for some she reminded them of a member of their own family. But her role was undoubtedly one of the main elements throughout all movies.
We decided to end this article with two of the greatest characters, in addition to the 3 main characters. One of the two actors who personified Professor Dumbledore were, without a doubt, the powerful but at the same time his endearing personality of the protection of the castle. An unrecognizable Richard Harris, a long-time Hollywood actor, portrays the most powerful magician for only two of the films because that's all his health allowed him. Sadly he died in 2002 when he had just begun to highlight the character.
There was more luck with the second and final Dumbledore, Michael Gambon. His performance had to be much more complex, to be able to represent a character who evolved unexpectedly during the plot. It is sad that it was recently revealed that his career as an actor was to put an end due to problems arising from memory. We, however, will never forget it as the great magician who ever lived in fiction.
