Love all the Harry Potter films!! Robbie Coltrane who plays Hagrid was the first person to be cast for the film. Platform 9 3/4 was filmed at King’s Cross station. In February 2002 this was the second highest grossing film worldwide after Titanic. This series is on Barry Norman’s list of 100 Greatest Films of all time that he produced at the start of 2012 in The Radio Times.
