Career

Harry Edward Melling was born on 13 March, 1989. He has always had a passion for acting, even putting on shows for his family since the age of 4. At a young age he enrolled in dance, singing, and drama classes, and when he turned nine he became a member of the Millfield Theatre Youth Drama Group. He won the part of Dudley when casting agents held auditions at his school for the first film. He hopes to set up a production company with a friend when they are older.

Before making one of the films in the Harry Potter series, he lost a large amount of weight, and the film producers considered changing actors as Dudley was portrayed as being large.

Melling is the grandson of Patrick Troughton, a noted character actor of the 1960s and 1970s, best remembered as the second Doctor in Doctor Who.

Ironically, after nearly ten years of playing a Muggle in a family that despises magic, Harry played the part of a warlock named Gilli in the Season Three episode "The Sorceror's Shadow" on the BBC show Merlin.
