Which Harry Potter Movie Was He In?

It’s been a busy year for Robert Pattinson, and now, he’ll finally get to rest after this year’s highly anticipated films. He’s already had a chance to decompress a little, appearing in a couple of Broadway shows, including the Broadway adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. He also hosted and appeared in the Netflix series, The Lost Generation, based on James McBride’s novel of the same name. While many people may know him for playing Harry Potter, it seems that 2017 was also a year of varied roles for the English actor.

The latest Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2, was probably the most anticipated film of the year. It was followed by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which was also based on a book, and then The Greatest Showman, the story of P.T. Barnum. It’s likely that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 was the most lucrative film of the year. So it’s no surprise that Robert Pattinson was in multiple films this year, including Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. He plays two very different characters in these two movies, which almost makes them a sort of trilogy of their own. And while we await the next installment in the Harry Potter franchise, fans may watch for him in many other upcoming films, including the Stephen King adaptation It.
