About This Quiz

The last Harry Potter movie, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," was released back in 2011, but the passage of time has done nothing to diminish how much people love the series. With the release of the play, "The Cursed Child," Harry Potter fans around the world were once again excited about having the tiniest slice of information about the Boy Who Lived. But, we must admit, we would have liked if the series had about, oh say, seven more books. That way, we would have more movies and more time to memorize the actual names of the actors who played our favorite characters. 

Unfortunately, J.K. Rowling only gave us seven, so we have to make do. We got eight movies and a bunch of characters who made the characters come to life. But do you know their names? No, we're not talking about matching the actors with their Harry Potter names. We want to know if you can match these Harry Potter actors to their real life, birth names.

It's easy to remember Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint. But who are Helena Bonham Carter, John Cleese and Ian Hart? It's time to see if you can match the Harry Potter character to their actual name.
