13 year-old Harry Melling
rejoins the cast as Harry's spoiled cousin. Playing Dudley in the first Harry Potter film was Harry's first professional role, although his love and talent for acting was clearly evident at just four years old when he started putting on shows for his family. By five years old, he had enrolled for Saturday morning dance, singing and drama classes at The Sue Nieto Theatre School. At nine he became a member of the Millfield Theatre Youth Drama Group and appeared in Robert Hyman's original musicals House and Y3K.
It comes as no surprise that acting is Harry's main love; it is most definitely in the genes. His grandfather was Patrick Troughton famed for his role as Dr. Who, his uncle is David Troughton a lead actor with the RSC, his cousin Sam is an actor with the National Theatre and his other uncle is Michael Troughton famed for his portrayal as Piers Fletcher Dervish in The New Statesman. His mother is a children's book illustrator and his father (also an illustrator) has worked on animated films.
Aside from his love of theatre and films, Harry enjoys playing the drums and making his own films.
