Actor Martin Freeman has a huge franchise under his belt, playing Bilbo Baggins in all three of director Peter Jackson’s Hobbit movies. However, he admits he’s a little upset he wasn’t in any of the eight Harry Potter films.
“For a long time I was one of seven British actors who wasn’t in Harry Potter, you know?” Freeman joked to US chat show host Jimmy Fallon last night.
“For a long time, it was just me and six other people staring through the window, orphans in a Dickens book,” he adds, after not being cast alongside the likes of Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith and Michael Gambon in the big-screen adaptations of JK Rowling’s novels.
