This wizard was seen in the Leaky Cauldron in 1993, reading the Muggle book A Brief History of Time by Stephen W. Hawking while possibly performing wandless magic on his cup of coffee, causing it to stir itself.

Behind the scenes

  • This wizard was portrayed by Ian Brown in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in a celebrity cameo.
  • His reading of a book titled A Brief History of Time is probably foreshadowing for the use of time travel later in the film
  • The copy of said book owned by the Wizard was published in 1990. Therefore, it can't be suggested as a proof that he might actually be a time traveller himself since the scene is placed in 1993.
