Warwick Davis On New Look Flitwick for the Harry Potter Films

For the over 15,000 of us who follow actor Warwick Davis on his official Twitter, we gained some insight on the change in appearance his character of Professor Flitwick has experienced during the course of the Harry Potter series. While we have heard some of this previous, Warwick Davis offered the following in a series of tweets this morning:
.So many of you have asked me the 'New look Flitwick' question, so I will answer it here, once and for all. When it came time to shoot 'Azkaban', there was no mention of 'Flitwick'' in the script. However, the producer still wanted me to be in the movie so he asked if I would play the role of 'Choir Master'. Of course, I said 'yes'. When it came time to shoot 'Goblet of Fire' the director, Michael Newell said he liked the look of the choir master, and from that moment, the character became known as 'Flitwick'.And that's all there is to it. Not that interesting really, is it? Let's have a quick show of Tweets - Old 'Flitwick' or New 'Flitwick''?

What say you? Feel free to weigh in the comments below. As a reminder too that as we first posted last month, fans will see a deleted scene with Flitwick and the choir on the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince DVD.  Warwick Davis will be see in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movies as both "Flitwick" and "Griphook," and will be filming his role in the very near days.

Old. That’s how I see him in the books. He’s seems more likable with the wispy hair and lighter colors. Choir Master is a cool character, but I never saw him as Flitwick.

Old Flitwick, definately. Liked the Choir master look, but it’s not Flitwick.

I always thought the “old flitwick” was powerful…

I like the look of the “New Flitwick” but wish that he still would have been the Charms Professor. Would have been cool if he’s been charming inannimate objects into playing or singing.

I don’t really have a definitive opinion, for me Flitwick was just Flitwick in the movies. The movie Flitwick is so very different from my personal book Flitwick that I am just happy Flitwick is in the films. Although, if I have to chose, I do think “new” Flitwick is a little more Flitwickier

I like the New Flitwick. He’s how I imagined Flitwick. And personally, it doesn’t really matter since they never even show Charms classes really.
