A fan of the series, Grint decided he would be perfect for the part "because [he has] ginger hair". His attempt was successful as the casting team asked for a meeting with him. Watson's Oxford theatre teacher passed her name on to the casting agents and she had to do over five interviews before she got the part.

Davis also plays two other roles in the film: the Goblin Head Teller at Gringotts, and dubs the voice of Griphook, who is embodied by Verne Troyer. Ian McNeice was considered for the role of Vernon.

Since the books have generated such a passionate following across the world, it was important to us to find a director that has an affinity for both children and magic.

Harry rolls over inside his bundle of blankets with his small hand closing on the letter as he sleeps on, not knowing he is special and famous, nor that he will be woken up the next morning by his Aunt Petunia's scream when she opens the front door to put out the milk bottles, nor that he will be spending the next few weeks being prodded and pinch by his cousin Dudley.
And he will never know that at this very moment, people meeting in secret all over the country are holding up glasses and saying in hushed voices: "To Harry Potter -- the boy who lived! The only difference is the vast number of pictures of Dudley Dursley throughout his life. Harry is trying to think about the dream he had been having. It was about a flying motorbike , and he thinks he has had the same dream before.
Aunt Petunia tells him to make some bacon, as she wants everything perfect for Dudley's 11th birthday. Harry dresses into a pair of Dudley's old clothes, and goes into the kitchen, where the table is covered in Dudley's presents. Harry has jet-black hair and green eyes. His glasses are held together by tape because Dudley has smashed them so many times. He often wonders how he got it and the Dursleys have told him that he got it from the car crash that killed Harry's parents.
Harry doesn't know much more about the accident though because the Dursleys' first rule is to not ask questions. Dudley comes in to the kitchen and begins to count his presents, only to find 37, which he angrily recalls is one fewer than the year before.
Aunt Petunia states that they are going to download him two new presents while they are out. Vernon tells Petunia that Arabella Figg , their next-door neighbour, has broken her leg and cannot take care of Harry while they are at the Zoo. They can't think of anyone else who can take care of him, so Harry has to go with them.
Dudley is allowed to take a friend to the Zoo and chooses his friend Piers Polkiss. Piers comes to the house with his mother. On the way, a motorbike overtakes them and Vernon complains about them.
Harry explains that he had a dream about a flying motorbike once and Vernon snappily reminds him that motorbikes do not fly. Harry thinks about all the strange things that have happened to him: He once turned his teacher's wig blue, jumped onto the school chimney, and grew all of his hair back the morning after a haircut. At the zoo, Dudley and Piers find the animals boring. Harry is left to watch a Boa constrictor as it sleeps and, when Dudley tries to make it move, it wakes up but still doesn't move.
The snake begins to move after Dudley and Piers slink away. Moments later, Harry speaks to the snake and finds that it miraculously understands him.
Piers calls Dudley and Vernon back to the snake's exhibit upon realising that it is now moving. Dudley pushes Harry out of the way and presses his face against the glass. Harry becomes angry and somehow the glass vanishes and the snake gets out scaring Dudley and Piers. As the snake slithers away, Harry thinks that he hears it speak back to him. Uncle Vernon blames Harry for what happened and sends him to his cupboard —with no meals for a week as punishment.
Look, Harry's got a letter! Who'd be writing to you? When Harry is finally allowed out, it's the beginning of the summer holidays. Even though he is not at school, Harry still can't escape Dudley and his gang , who regularly visit the house. To keep out of their way, Harry usually wanders around Privet Drive. One day during the summer, Harry is told to get the post for Uncle Vernon.
