The Harry Potter franchise is one of the largest movie franchises of all time, with eight films and ten years grossing $6 billion. The franchise began with its first film in 2001 after the book’s rapid rise in popularity and Warner Bros. Studios realized that film franchises based on the book were extremely popular and profitable. However, while the franchise has been a critical and financial success, not all the actors involved in the films have made millions. I talked about how frustrated I was.
Miriam Margolyes played the role of Professor Sprout in the film. Professor Sprout’s character is a popular character in books and movies, and she made her debut in her second installment, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Professor Sprout is the Herbology teacher at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, as well as the headmistress of one of the school’s girlfriends, Hufflepuff. Avid fans of the movies and books will remember that Professor Sprout played a key role in Chamber of Secrets, brewing the Mandrake Potion that helped revive all those petrified by the Basilisk. Those who don’t know the plot of Harry Potter are completely lost regarding the previous sentence.
In a recent interview with Metro, Miriam admitted that she was very unhappy with Harry Potter’s salary and complained about it, but she’s not so unhappy anymore and has a lot to gain. I’m glad that I actually got the part because it helped me. Here is her full quote:
“I never made millions of dollars on Harry Potter. I think 3 out of 4 of the main characters made it, I think they deserve it, but my character doesn’t.” No, I was just two and I only got £60,000 for being Professor Sprout, but I said, ‘I’m not complaining…now. I complained, but it made me very famous.
Perhaps the salary she received wasn’t great, but Miriam will forever remain Professor Sprout in the hearts of millions of Potterheads around the world.
