This YouTuber had a role in the Harry Potter movies and you 10000% missed them

We definitely didn’t see this!

Plenty of famous faces have made a brief appearance in the Harry Potter films. Julianne Hough made a cameo once. Even Little Mix’s Jesy was cast as a Hogwarts pupil for the Yule Ball in 2005’s ‘Harry Potter And The Goblet of Fire’.

But one, person you deffo missed hovering in the background was Zoe Sugg. Nope, we’re not kidding, Potterheads. Zoella made a brief appearance in the Harry Potter films and fans are freaking the ‘eff out over her small role.

The news of Zoella being in the Harry Potter films first broke when fans noticed that she was listed as ‘Girl in Potion Class (uncredited)’ on her IMDB page.

Say what?! Not sure about you but we SO didn’t see Zoella floating in the background of Snape’s class.

After a little stalking, Zoella’s fans also found a blog post that Zoe wrote about being in the Harry Potter movies. It was dated way back to 2009 and in the post Zoe spoke about how she got the role and her involvement in the film. The blog post said:

“I was 10 when they first started filming for the first film, and my primary school is in the village they used. So they came & asked everyone in my year (which was probably about 7 children) if we wanted to be extras. & of course we said yes. I was in hufflepuff :)”

“The first year, we were used in Snape’s potion class scene. I am not seen in the film annoyingly, but its nice to know I was there. We also got to mingle with the cast, we watched spider man with them. Haha & Devon Murray (who plays Seamus Finnigan) asked me out..haha. I said no. I was 10 years old and boys scared me.”

So that’s why you never saw Zoe floating in the background of Snape’s class. Unfortunately she was never on-screen. It’s still amazing knowing she’s there though.
