Colin Creevey from ‘Harry Potter’ is Now a Real-Life Pro Photographer


The character Colin Creevey in the Harry Potter universe is Harry Potter’s biggest fan and a boy who loves taking pictures. It turns out the Muggle actor who played Creevey in the hit movies has grown up and become a real-life professional photographer.

Hugh Mitchell grew up in the historic English city of Winchester, which is often voted as one of the happiest places in the UK. His life changed after he learned of auditions being held for the Harry Potter films.

“At school I wasn’t mad about drama, although I was in the odd school play,” Mitchell tells PetaPixel. “One day I saw a fax from Warner Bros up on the notice board (it being a fax tells you how long ago this was) recruiting hopefuls to audition for the second Harry Potter movie.

Here’s a clip of Creevey introducing himself to Harry in the 2002 film Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets:
