  Percy Weasley chats about filming Potter 3
Updated 06 March 2003, 15.51
Chris Rankin said being in Harry Potter is great fun
Potter actor Chris Rankin, who plays Percy Weasley, has spoken out about the new movie.

Chris joined the likes of Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint when filming started on the Prisoner of Azkaban on 24 February.

And this time his character Percy is Head Boy at Hogwart's - so he's having lots of fun with the part.

But like the books, the third film is a lot darker than the others.

Sinking in

"It's a lot scarier than the first two," Chris, from Norfolk, said. "There's a lot of scary stuff happening."

Chris told the BBC's Norfolk website that he was a bit nervous about acting alongside all the famous people in the Potter films, like Dame Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman.

"It was quite daunting to start with but they're just normal people I've discovered. Amazingly talented people. It's wonderful to work with them."

But he said it was only just starting to sink in that he was actually in the Potter movies, which have broken box office records worldwide.

"It's beginning to sink in now but it's still tremendous fun. I absolutely love doing them," he said.

And Chris refuses to give up his 'day job' at his local cinema in Norwich. Although he can't work there when he's filming, he always goes back as soon as he can.

"I love it, it's such a good job!" he said.
