  Potter fan pays 10,000 to be an extra
Updated 03 November 2002, 13.30
Stirling Castle
Stirling Castle looks a bit like Hogwarts

One lucky Potter fan will be the envy of all the others after snapping up a walk-on part in the next film.

But they had to pay for the privilege, shelling out a whopping 10,000 for a blink-and-you'll-miss it role in the Prisoner of Azkaban.

The mystery extra handed over the cash at a charity Hallowe'en banquet organised by JK Rowling at Stirling Castle in Scotland.

Harry Potter
It's the Potter premiere on Sunday
Overall the event raised 275,000 for the Multiple Sclerosis Society Scotland, with other big money items being a tour of an LA film studio and a holiday on a private island.

The castle was transformed for the event into a spooky Celtic banquet with fire-eaters, pipers and burning torches.

JK is expected in London on Sunday for the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets at the Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square.
