Albus Dumbledore Comparing Dumbledore in the first two
Harry Potter movies with Dumbledore in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" is like looking
at two entirely different people. Oh, how the man has changed. Wait, it is two
different people. The original actor who played ... more Professor Dumbledore, Richard Harris, died of cancer after the second movie
wrapped. Michael Gambon replaced him for the next three movies,
wearing a shorter, darker beard clasped occasionally by a sort of ponytail
holder thing. We don't care how hip this is with the elderly wizards; it's just
not a good look.
