There’s nothing like playing hooky in elementary school — the thrill of skipping class for the day is the closest a lot of us get to a rebellious streak in those early days, and for Hero Fiennes Tiffin, the audition process for “Harry Potter” was initially a chance for him to get out of class for the day. During our exclusive sit-down with the actor, Tiffin told us that after he had landed a small job, the audition for the storied franchise presented itself. Despite going up against very accomplished young actors, Tiffin’s mom told him he could get out of school for the day — he was in.
“The next audition, call back another weekday, another day off school. My incentive for the ‘Harry Potter’ films was genuinely days off school, to go do the auditions,” Tiffin told us. “When I got the role, I remember jumping onto the sofa and burying my head in it and screaming and then sitting up and being like, ‘Oh, now I’m really nervous. Now I actually have to do it.'”
