Potterheads are going out of mind. since this 1980s BBC Drama has a striking resemblance to Harry Potter!
What is actually happening and what is this show?
It’s a joyful Christmassy tale of a boarding school student named Kay Harker (played by Devin Stanfield) who is given a miraculous box, based on the 1935 John Masefield book “When the Wolves Were Running.”
He can use it to travel through time and change his shape to defend his family from evil magicians.
Two hundred youngsters were auditioned for the role of Harry Potter in the 1980s, and Devin was eventually cast.
He was the grandson of actor Leslie Sands and had previously appeared in a few minor roles on television.
What has came before has inspired all art and creativity to some level.
