Downton Abbey’s Lady Mary, aka Michelle Dockery, has revealed she was like an excited child when the cast of the drama got the chance to film the Christmas scenes at Alnwick Castle, which previously acted as Hogwarts Castle of Witchcraft and Wizardry in some of the Harry Potter movies.

The massive Harry Potter fan was revealing some teasers for the festive special during a press day for the return of the fifth series, when she admitted her cool persona as Lady Mary well and truly went out the window when she entered the castle grounds, where ‘broomstick lessons’ are offered to visitors.

The castle acted as the spot where Harry and his friend Ron Weasley first learned to fly for Quidditch practice in the hit movies.

“I’ve seen and read them all,” Michelle added, talking about the Harry Potter books and films.

“As soon as I got there I ran onto the Quidditch pitch, and I was like, ‘Where are they?!’”

"If I’m gonna be an old, lonely man, I’m gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I’ll be the crazy man with a snake, you know. Crazy Snake Man. And I’ll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids won’t walk past my place, they will RUN. ‘Run away from crazy snake man!’ they’ll shout.”

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: INDIA

India’s Academy of Sorcery boasts an impressive display of flashy colours, from enchanted saris that shift colours sporadically throughout the day, to the lavishly painted exterior of the academy which is situated in a nondescript location along Ganges River. Due to the frightening rate at which the school’s ancient mango tree (jokingly nicknamed “Mammoth Mango Machine”) produces mangoes, students have to endure the perpetually evolving art of mango cuisine at least five days a week. Every year, to the students’ great enjoyment, classes are halted for Diwali to make time for various competitions that take place: firework flourishes and charms for upper-year students (bonus points if it doesn’t set any part of the school on fire), and lantern designing for lower-year students (use of animals, alive or dead, is forbidden).
