We have all probably done a harry potter house quiz at some point in our lives, to see which house we would fit into if we were to attend the magical school for witches and wizards. Whilst we often daydream about which house we could have been in if the school were real, we don’t often think about the houses that others could have been sorted into, especially celebrities. So in this article, I am going to list five famous actors and which Hogwarts house I think that they would belong in.
Harrison Ford is one of Hollywood’s most famous actors with a career spanning five decades where he has played many iconic roles such as Hon Solo, Indiana Jones, and Jack Ryan. Whilst he has played many action heroes on screen, he is also one in real life. Ford is a licensed pilot and has used his helicopter to help locate missing or injured hikers, including rescuing a thirteen-year-old boy from the Yellowstone National Park. It is because of these heroics off as well as on-screen that Harrison Ford would have been in Gryffindor.
Greg Cipes is one of the most laidback actors in the film and television industry. Although you might not recognize his face, you would definitely recognize his voice as Beast Boy from Teen Titans or Michelangelo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He has been a reggae band from 2007 called Greg Cipes and the People and has been vegan since 2009. His laidback and kind-hearted attitude has carried over into his iconic performances and it is for these reasons that he would have been in Hufflepuff.
Staring as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films, Watson is no stranger to the world of Harry Potter. Outside of her acting career, Watson has partaken in many forms of activism but in particular feminism. Her speech on the movement to the United Nations was watched by so many people that it made the website crash. She has also started a feminist book club called Our Shared Self on Goodreads. After filming the final film in the Harry Potter franchise, she was one of the few members of the cast to return to education, gaining a degree in Literature. Despite her on-screen appearance as a Gryffindor, Watson is clearly a Ravenclaw at heart.
Robert Downey Jr
Robert Downy Jr is the best type of Slytherin. Ambitious and loyal whilst being able to balance pride and fun. In 2015 he was noted to be Hollywood’s highest-paid actor. The similarities between his own life and that of the character Tony Stark is probably why he was able to embody the character so well, leading to the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It is his bravery that makes Tom Hardy a Gryffindor. Hardy is often recognized as one of the most well-known action heroes of our generation with appearances in Venom and Mad Max: Fury Road. He has also proved his heroism in real life when he chased down two thieves, stopping them and making sure they weren’t armed before the police could arrive.
