British actor Richard Harris only agreed to the role of Albus Dumbledore after his eleven-year-old granddaughter threatened to never speak to him again. Harris sadly died shortly after the release of 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets'. He left big shoes that actor Michael Gambon filled in the later films of the series.
