Harry Potter actor takes centre stage in York minster production
6:45pm Monday 14th October 2013 in News
AN actor who starred in the Harry Potter movies has performed alongside schoolchildren in a one-off performance to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the birth of an 18th century novelist and vicar.
David Bradley, who played Argus Filch in the film series, said he agreed to take on the role of Laurence Sterne in Voice From The Pulpit as it was being performed in York Minster.
He said: “I was attracted to delivering Sterne’s final sermon partly because of the content, but also because it was a concert performance with a choir and musicians, in the Minster, which made it such a spectacle and a memorable experience."
Mr Bradley was joined by a choir of 40 pupils from Carlton Minniot Community Primary School, and St Peter’s Primary, Brafferton, both near Thirsk, and two schools in Tadcaster.
The children received professional coaching from University of York choirmaster Jonathan Brigg for this year-long project to mark Sterne’s tercentenary.
Mr Bradley will be seen next on BBC2 on November 23 playing William Hartnell, the first Doctor Who, in Mark Gatiss’s drama An Adventure In Space And Time.
