Potter Spotter

As I have an unofficial list of Harry Potter actors seen on stage in my head, I thought I'd follow the example of Weez, revstan and trpw and try to make it an official one online. Like them I'll use this as my definitive cast list, it seems to include people who ended up on the cutting room floor, so I guess Toby Regbo counts.

I'll probably come back to this over time as I add more or realise there's someone I'd missed. If I've seen someone on stage loads of times I may well forget the odd production I've seen, but after all it only takes one show for it to count. Unfortunately this isn't a list that's physically possible to complete, what with Richard Harris not waiting for me to see him on stage before dying.

I've linked to my reviews of the shows where possible; any title that isn't a link means it's from before I started reviewing online.

*The one instance where I wasn't so much "spotting" a future Potter actor as co-starring with one. Basically, I win the internet.
