Harry Potter Actors Take Part in National Doodle Day for Charity
March 04, 2010, 02:03 PM
A number of actors from the Harry Potter films have joined hundreds of celebrities taking part in National Doodle Day. Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Miriam Margolyes (Professor Sprout), Richard Griffiths (Uncle Dursley), Roger Lloyd Pack (Barty Crouch Sr.), Katie Leung (Cho Chang) and Oliver Phelps (George Weasley) are among the actors to auction off their doodles to help those suffering from epilepsy and neurofibromatosis. Speaking to The Telegraph about the auction, Margolyes said, "Doodling is something that we all do; so why not put it to good use and help raise money for a worthy cause.''
The National Doodle Day website, which you can find at this link, has a gallery of all of the donated doodles, including those of the actors from the Harry Potter series. The auction will start tomorrow, the 5th of March, on eBay.
Both deseases can be very debilitating depending to what extent the affect the organism. It’s a really good cause to be helping out with. Gillian Anderson’s brother (GA was Scully in the deceased X-Files) has neurofibromatosis, and I guess May was selected as the “neurofibromatosis month”. FYI.
You forgot Ian Hart also Dave Legeno!
Bonnie: It so simple, its awesome. She should do this more often. I’ll probably try to bid on hers.
Dave: It’s hilarious and goofy and simple.
Katie: You can tell she put a lot of detail and work to it! It has this haunted quality, yet, I can’t seem to take my eyes off of it!
Oliver: I love Oliver’s sun! Its so cool, or hot should I say!
Ian: Lots of faces and dogs. He really defines the definition of “doodle”
Richard: OMG! Its so dark, so deep! He uses a big marker, so it has big effects on the picture. Dark Quality.
Matt: It’s like his twitter background! He’s awesome because he really shows his personality and his interests in the doodle. Matt doodles well.
My favourites: Bonnie, Katie, Richard!
