Spot The Stuntman

by David Haber

There's a scene in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone where you can clearly see a stuntman double in the place of Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley. But, the stuntman is only in the movie for four frames, so it's literally impossible to see him unless you freeze-frame the DVD.

I think that this is a very interesting point, however, I don't see how this matters to the outcome of the movie. I mean, seriously, who cares? But truthfully, it is interesting.

Yeah, this is sort of a "behind the scenes" kind of bit of trivia. Next time you watch the DVD you can dazzle your friends with it...

Wow, that was really surprising but how actually did the filmmakers let it go on and umm is rupert grint so conscious about falling or getting hurt, anyway it was interesting!

Why on Earth would they even have a stuntman if the also had Rupert do it too? Doesn't that totally defeat the purpose of a stuntman!

Or, they needed someone who could hold onto the horse during the impact of the sword...

Ok so i just watched it. Its Really cool! But why would they need someone to hold onto the horse if the piont of the scene is that Ron FELL OFF the horse?

Good point...
Maybe they stuck that in so we could see it:d
