Turns out the real-life Harry Potter not that big a fan of Harry Potter series.Turns out the real-life Harry Potter not that big a fan of Harry Potter series.

After 12 years of it I couldn't count the amount of times I've heard 'You're a wizard Harry'. It does wear a bit thin after a while. And I've heard all the puns about my wand.
