Katie Leung (Cho Chang)

Katie Leung

Name: Katie Leung
Birthday: 8 August 1987
Starsign: Leo
From: Motherwell, Scotland
Family: Katie has two brothers and a younger sister.

Showbiz CV: Not much!

The Potter films are Katie's first as an actress. She went along to a open casting call and after a four-hour wait was seen for an audition. A few weeks later she was Harry Potter's first girlfriend!

Katie says she's going to put off going to university so she can be in films six and seven - presuming her character is in them!

Potty about: Shopping apparently. She nearly left the queue for the audition because it was so long. It's a good job she didn't!

If she really had magic powers, she would... "like to be able to read boys' minds".
