What Happened to Crabbe and Goyle Actors from the Harry Potter Motion Pictures?
Most of the Harry Potter fans keep a close eye on the main cast of the famous fantasy film series. However, some of the supporting actors are almost forgotten nowadays. Do you remember the evil duo of Goyle and Crabbe, Draco Malfoy’s best friends?
In the final scene of the last Harry Potter movie, Vincent Crabbe was replaced by Blaize Zabini portrayed by Louis Cordice. Why did that happen? Well, there is good reason. In April 2009, actor Jamie Waylett who played Crabbe was arrested after officers discovered eight bags of cannabis in his car. Fifteen marijuana plants were found in his house. The actor was sentenced to 120 hours of community service. He had to leave the cast of Harry Potter.
However, it got even worse. In August 2011, Jamie was arrested for his participation in the 2011 England riots. After leaving prison, Waylett never returned to the cinema. He enjoys rap and creates hip-hop, trap, and grime tracks. According to his Twitter account, the former actor became a father not so long ago.
Fortunately, his on-screen friend Joshua Herdman successfully played Gregory Goyle in all eight installments of the franchise. After the Harry Potter movies, he starred in a dozen movies and TV series. Herdman appeared as Righteous in the 2018 film Robin Hood, alongside Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx. The actor has a son Morgan.
After five years of training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Herdman began his MMA career on 23 April 2016. He loves the sport and wants to become a professional fighter.
