My name is Flick Miles and I was Hermione Granger’s double in the "Harry Potter" films.
To mark 20 years since the release of the first film, I have decided to get back in touch with some of the most influential people involved in creating the film. They have shared their untold stories and amazing memories of what it was like to bring "Harry Potter" to life. If you want to know what life was really like behind the scenes of "Harry Potter," this is the podcast for you!
