  Potter fans pester new Dumbledore
Updated 30 September 2003, 11.22
Potter fans are pestering Sir Michael Gambon
The actor who plays Professor Dumbledore in the third Harry Potter film, Sir Michael Gambon, has revealed that his new fans won't leave him alone.

Sir Michael said all the attention has changed his life a fair bit, especially since lots of kids have worked out where he lives.

He says he gets letters from children all over the world, and sometimes they even knock on his front door, although he doesn't mind really.

'Big responsibility'

Sir Michael - who took over the role after Richard Harris died - said it was sometimes a bit of a nuisance but it's important to keep smiling and be nice to his young fans.

He said: "My friends' children come round and see me now, which they never did before.

"Being Dumbledore is a big responsibility."

But playing Dumbledore obviously hasn't proven that big a job, because since filming began in February he's had time to make three other films!
