In this episode we talk to our old friend Katie Leung. At the age of seventeen Katie joined the Harry Potter cast for the fourth film, The Goblet of Fire, as Harry’s love interest, Cho Chang.
We ask her what it was like to have the nation’s attention as she gave Harry his first kiss, how she dealt with the paparazzi on her doorstep and we reminisce about some memorable nights out at a black metal bar in Switzerland.
Since Harry Potter, Katie has appeared in a series of brilliant films and TV dramas alongside legends like Jackie Chan, Hugh Laurie and Pierce Brosnan. She is also a phenomenal photographer and a passionate trans and womxn’s rights activist.
Katie is an ambassador for the My Body Back Project, which supports victims in the aftermath of rape and sexual assault. You can donate or find out more at:
