GEEK TRIVIA

Which Movie Character Was Allergic To His Costume?
Harry Potter
Hellboy
Gandalf
Chewbacca

Answer: Harry Potter

While there are plenty of on-screen hazards for the actors of our favorite movies such as dragons, renegade wizards, terrorists, killer aliens, and the like, there are also the hazards that come with suiting up to play the role itself.

In a 2011 interview with Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling, Daniel Radcliffe (the actor that portrayed Harry) revealed that there had been several pairs of the iconic round-rimmed Harry Potter glasses in the beginning of filming as they’d discovered he was allergic to the plastic used in the original pair.
