Please join us at Leaky in wishing Brendan Gleeson a very happy birthday. The actor, who plays Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody in the Harry Potter films, is celebrating his 56th birthday today. Many happy returns, Mr. Gleeson!
Happy belated birthday! You did a wonderful job of portraying Mad Eye Moody, capturing his courage, and the dangerous side of him very well.
Happy Birthday Brendan, hope you had a great day on Monday. You were an amazing Moody, i don’t think anyone would have played it better.
xx We love you Brendan!
I thought this was one of the better casting decisions made by the filmmakers. Mr. Gleeson really nailed the character, both as inhabited by Barty Crouch, Jr. and as Mad-Eye himself! Brave, committed, grumpy, paranoid, a little scary but with a sly sense of humor. Well-done, sir, and many happy returns!
Happy birthday, Brendan, you are one of the best actors in HP. I enjoyed ever single moment and wished you got more space in the movies.
Cheers with Butterbeer.
