Quotes from the Cast of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
What the actors have to say about their roles
Dan Radcliffe on winning the part of Harry:
"I was in the bath and talking to my mum when the phone rang and Dad came in and told me I'd got the part. I was so happy, I cried a lot! That night I woke up at two in the morning and woke up Mum and Dad and asked them, 'Is it real? Am I dreaming?'"
Rupert Grint on Ron:
"Ron is one of my favorite characters and I can really relate to him. I've got loads of brothers and sisters and I know what it's like growing up in a big family. And I still get hand-me-downs!"
Emma Watson on Hermione:
"Unlike Hermione, I've never been top of my class. In fact, quite the opposite! Although I am very bossy and my little brother tends to suffer a bit."
Harry Melling on Dudley Dursley:
"I thought playing Dudley would be fun because one minute he's sad and the next he's happy and then grumpy."
Robbie Coltrane on Hagrid:
"[Hagrid is] a bit lacking in social skills. I don't think he would ever be asked to join the golf club, but he's a good sort of fellow who likes dragons and things like that. He's actually pretty fearless and very fond of wild animals, which most people are afraid of. He's a giant and generally they aren't very nice, but he's got the good genes and takes the children under his wing."
