  Harry Potter stand-in reports 'untrue'
Updated 01 November 2001, 13.10
Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone
Reports that a lucky schoolboy landed a last-minute role in the new Harry Potter film have been denied.

The Sun newspaper had said a 13-year-old boy from west London was brought in to be the voice of Harry after star Daniel Radcliffe's voice broke during filming.

Identical voices

It said he was asked to provide the voice because he sounded exactly like Daniel and that his voice would also appear on the Nintendo and Playstation games.

But a Warner Bros spokeswoman says the report is untrue and Daniel Radcliffe voiced his part himself through the whole film.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone premières in the UK on 4 November.
