The Sorting Hat Has Spoken — Here's The Hogwarts House Each Harry Potter Cast Member Is In
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and, now, there's a Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts reunion special premiering on HBO Max on New Year's Day, so we're all in our Hogwarts feels right now. If you grew up with the movies and books like I did, or you became a Potterhead later in life, then you don't need Floo powder to transport yourself back to that nostalgia-filled place of wizards, curses, adventure, potions classes, magical creatures, romance, and finding where you truly belong. Part of that journey to belonging starts at the beginning of the first movie: with the Sorting Hat announcing which house each new student will be in at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
As a refresher, Hogwarts has four houses: courageous Gryffindor, loyal and hardworking Hufflepuff, intelligent and witty Ravenclaw, and ambitious and clever Slytherins. Who can forget that iconic scene when Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) frantically whispers "Not Slytherin" as the Sorting Hat debates where he belongs? Unless you're a Muggle, chances are you've either sorted yourself into a house over the years or used Pottermore to do it for you (hi, Ravenclaw here), and that's had us wondering: what Hogwarts houses are the original cast in? The stars don't always match up with the houses their characters were in, which makes it fun for fans to guess what the Sorting Hat would say to the real-life people behind your favorite characters. After you make your guesses, swipe through the slides ahead to see what the actors and actresses have to say about their house!
