    Awesome - as cheesy as they were, I absolutely love the 'Leprechaun' films :)

    The weirdest part is I still couldn't get over in the 2000s was finding out it was a Ron Howard film.

    He lives there?

    I grew up in Holme, my folks had the shop in the village which has now closed.

    Great video. Warwick was doing theatre over Xmas in my town woking a few years back. I drove past him as he was on a segway going about his business.

    One of the few actors I'd love to say hello to.

    I'm really glad that you guys enjoyed it, and I really hope we can film some more content in the future when things look a bit safer, we have some ideas already but if you guys had any ideas feel free to suggest them. :)

    It was a privelige to meet both Warwick and Harrison, and Warwick was kind enough to sign a few things for staff too. So MrsSeabiscuit's Deathly Hallows Part 2 Bluray is signed by both Warwick and Harrison, who both star in it!
    Also thank you to a few confused customers who were in the shop on the day of filming, thank you for not leaking the surprise!

    I never knew Harrison was in part 2 deathly hallows. Assume it was at the gringots scene and he was playing one of the other goblins?

    The scariest part is thinking that was 10 years ago. To also think I also remember thinking that when the first film came out in 2001.

    To me the scariest thing is that nothing has replaced Harry Potter in terms of cultural significance since 2001.

    I went a new craze that has everyone queuing for book signings, waiting at midnight for the first showing/book release, while dressed in cosplay.

    Marvel kind of have that now, but it's not the same.
