40 Creepy Facts About The Black / Lestrange Family From Harry Potter
Gary Oldman Almost Wasn’t Cast as Sirius
Gary Oldman‘s performance as Sirius is part of what made the character so iconic. Robson Green was Christopher Columbus‘s first choice for the part, but Christopher didn’t end up directing The Prisoner of Azkaban. Instead, that job went to Roma director Alfonso Cuarón.
Alfonso’s choice for the role was Gary, who ended up getting the part. Prisoner of Azkaban ended up being one of the very best Harry Potter films thanks to Alfonso, and Gary Oldman’s performance was certainly another reason for the film’s success. It turned out to be a near perfect combination of actor and director working together.
