    I never thought that Harry Potter would be like James Bond, Dracula or Sherlock Holmes, where people have a "preferred actor" for that character. I like Daniel Radcliffe but I must say, Darren is my HP.

    My wife's grandmother was Dorothea Redmond and was Disney royalty. She was the first female set production designer and designed Disney Main St, The Space Needle and the restaurant at LAX. You can see her work in a lot of the Disney movies. She was a tremendously talented artist and lived to be 98 years old. Her husband was Harry Redmond Jr whom, along with his father, brought the movie business from New York to Hollywoodland. He live to be 101.
