The Biography Channel will be airing a special documentary called "The Harry Potter Kids" which profiles actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger). The cable channel website describes this program as:

They were virtually unknown when they were cast in the first Harry Potter movie in 2000, but Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint have since become worldwide stars. When Radcliffe won the coveted role as Harry in The Sorcerer's Stone, he was plucked from almost compete obscurity. Grint was a fan of the books and wanted a part in the films so much that he sent a video of himself rapping about how much he wanted the role. Watson was just 11 and had almost no acting experience when the film was released. Today, all the Potter kids are grown, especially Watson, who has been named one of the world's sexiest women by the magazine "FHM".

George Beahm, who wrote several unofficial books on the Harry Potter series , is among those interviewed for the program which will be broadcast on the Biography Channel December 19 at 9:00pm (ET) then again on December 20 at 1:00 am (ET). Anyone who can capture video, please send it in! Thanks George!
