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
  • Notably enough, the copy of said book owned by the Wizard was not yet published in 1993. It has been suggested that he might actually be a time traveller himself, which would explain his interest in that muggle book.
