Question: In Harry Potter, who plays Albus Dumbledore in the movie?
Correct Answer He has yards and yards of white hair and beard. Moviegoers will certainly miss Richard Harris, who died in 2002. He reportedly took the part of Dumbledore only because his granddaughter begged him to. He made three more films following "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." A distinguished actor born in Limerick, Ireland, Harris shone in "Unforgiven," "A Man Called Horse," "Mutiny on the Bounty," and "This Sporting Life." He may be best known for the "Harry Potter" movies and for playing Arthur in "Camelot," but in my opinion, these were not his best roles.
