Harris may be replaced in Harry Potter III
by Doc on Aug.29, 2002, under Movies
IMDB News is reporting that due to health concerns, Richard Harris, 71, who plays Professor Albus Dumbldore, may need to be replaced for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. He already has had a double in the first two films, the unknown Harry Robinson, and he is the favorite to take over if Harris is too ill.
Update 8/30: Perhaps not. The Beeb is reporting that “his recovery was imminent”, and filming isn’t set to begin until February or March. At least they still have a backup…
