Ladies and Gentlemen: It is Sir Michael Gambon’s birthday..not “let’s thrash him cause we don’t like the character he’s playing [or his interpretation of said character] or he doesn’t read the books so let’s send them to him day”. For once, don’t let your personal “gripes” ruin someone’s birthday. This is not the time, or the place.Hagiorapher13, thank you! And, yes, petunia2: he may very well be reading this….I wish the man a very happy birthday! Here’s to you, Sir Michael!

Confed lady and Haiorapher, if Gambon cares enough to get his feelings hurt when fans criticize his performance, then he ought to care enough to do some research on his character (read the books!!).

Got to say I don’t like the new and intrusive adverts on the comments.

Jeeez you guys are really picky. I mean sure he’s not perfect to the books but you also have to realize that the director tells him to do certain things and if you go back to the third movie I think he played the part AMAZINGLY just when they gto a new director and the series got to eb darker Gambon made the character darker.

And going back to the first and second movie Richard Harris you have to admit was a bit too old and sick to play the part, he knew it when he took on the role. And RIP Mr. Harris, but he wasn’t THAT amazing as Dumbledore either.

So stop being sarcastic and snotty just because Gambon doesn’t play Dumbledore the way you want, it’s the man’s birthday [or was] so grow up and say “Happy Birthday”

[my 2 cents xP]

13 lucky charms: we are not being “sarcastic and snotty” because Gambon didn’t play the role the way WE want, we’re upset and legitimately critical because he didn’t play the part JO wrote.
