This week’s Golden Globes were a sight to behold! The ceremony was definitely one for the books with all the high-profile guests, stunning dresses, and extravagant performances. But, it wasn’t just the red carpet that was entertaining – the backstage area was just as exciting!
The ‘Harry Potter’ actor, Tom Hiddleston, was one of the guests and he shared his exciting news with the world via Twitter. The night before the big event, Hiddleston tweeted that he was “really nervous” about his big speech and asked for some “good luck”. Well, Hiddleston had a lot to be nervous about! His scene in the ‘Harry Potter’ series is one of the most famous in movie history and it’s been adapted for the screen several times. We think it’s about time that Tom gets some recognition for all his hard work!
So, if you’re an ‘Harry Potter’ fan and you want to prepare for an interview with the legendary actor, then check out the following tips!
Start Familiarizing Yourself With the ‘Potter’ Universe
One of the best things about the ‘Harry Potter’ series is that it provides a world of opportunities for fans. From casting calls to Skype interviews, fans can enjoy an experience that the general public cannot. While, at the same time, the general public can enjoy the adventures that the Harry Potter characters went through.
Since the beginning of the year 2020, Tom Hiddleston has been appearing in character as ‘Thomas Alva Edison’ in the Broadway musical, ‘The Boy From Oz.’ While in New York City, you can take the opportunity to interview the ‘Harry Potter’ actor during a break in the performance. You can also attend one of his many upcoming public appearances as ‘Edison’ which will provide you with the opportunity to ask about his time on set or in the recording studio with J.K. Rowling and the rest of the ‘Harry Potter’ cast.
Watch The ‘Harry Potter’ Movies (And Read The Books) Back-To-Back
If you’ve never read a ‘Harry Potter’ book or seen any of the movies, then why not? They are classics! Aside from being able to prepare for an interview with an iconic actor, you will also be able to enjoy an enthralling story that will leave you wanting more.
The best thing about the ‘Harry Potter’ movies is that they are never outdated. Even now, after more than 10 years since the final installment was released, the movies still hold up. In 2020, you can attend one of the many ‘Harry Potter’ exhibits that are cropping up around the world to see the Hogwarts Castle and other iconic sets for yourself! If you read the books, you will notice that every few years, the story would change. For example, in the ‘Harry Potter’ series, Harry’s godfather, Sirius Black, is portrayed as a villain. So, if you want to prepare for an interview with Tom Hiddleston, then be sure to watch all of his previous work, including ‘The Avengers’ and ‘The Night Manager’. These two movies will give you a good idea of what to expect from his appearance on the Golden Globes stage!
Leverage The ‘Harry Potter’ Platforms
While it’s great to have a direct connection to an iconic movie or television show through a casting call or an interview with an extra, it’s even better when you can use these connections to advance your career. In the ‘Harry Potter’ universe, fans can connect with Hollywood through online platforms like Casting Calls, which allow users to browse open casting calls from around the world and even apply for roles. Similarly, users can connect with TV shows, either through open calls or directly with the casting department, to secure roles on upcoming episodes.
In the case of ‘The Boy From Oz’, you can connect with the musical directly by visiting its official website, where you can find out more about the show and its different audition options.
Create A Media Blitz: Use All Available Platforms
With the rise of TikTok, many celebrities have become famous through the platform and it’s provided a new way to promote oneself. If you want to prepare for an interview with the ‘Harry Potter’ actor, then you can create a media blitz using all available platforms. You can start by setting up a social media account on TikTok, where you will be able to engage with users through comedy or narrative videos.
From there, you can branch into Instagram and Snapchat, where you can post photos and videos from on your own adventures in New York City. For best results, use a combination of the three platforms – TikTok, Instagram, and Snapchat – along with Instagram’s new video platform, Quibi. By using all of these platforms, you will be able to create a buzz around yourself, much like the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise did more than a decade ago. Plus, you never know – you might even make it onto the show!
Find Your Inner ‘Potter’ Within
If you’ve watched and enjoyed the ‘Harry Potter’ series, then why not try out for a part? You might just land a role, thanks to all the buzz created by the previous tips! Once you’re on set, you can find yourself in the inner sanctum sanctorum, surrounded by wizards and witches!
Part of what makes the ‘Harry Potter’ series so special is that it taps into the imagination of viewers, who might think they’re in a wizarding world, when in reality, it’s just a group of actors pretending. So, if you’ve ever dreamed of being a wizard, then now might be the perfect opportunity to make your dream a reality!
