Harry Potter fan Margotu Margai, who led a difficult childhood in war-torn Sierra Leone, has now landed a role in "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" as a Hufflepuff student. Margai, who is nineteen, says of the experience:

"It’s so surreal. I’ve read all the books and seen all the Harry Potter films but I’m still trying to believe I’ve got a role in the film given the fact I could have been shot dead all those years ago. ...A soldier came into my house and looked straight at me – and the simply carried on walking. I’ll never forget the way he looked straight at me. Yet the other day I was just eating my lunch and got chatting to Daniel Radcliffe. It was only for a few minutes but he was really nice."
