    Michael Gambon: The Much Loved Dumbledore!

    Oh yes, Michael Gambon is the actor who has always stood by Harry Potter’s side as the sweet Dumbledore, the long and white bearded professor in the Harry Potter films. He is a theatre actor who has worked in many prestigious films that have won him accolades from many critics.

    Some memorable roles played by him on stage include Volpone, King Lear and many other Shakespearean characters. Gambon may well be termed as a Shakespearean actor who has dedicated his entire life to theatre. He was a possible contender for playing the role of James Bond, the handsome spy but eventually didn’t make it. Films like The view From the Bridge won him awards and recognition too worldwide.

    Gambon, not many would know, has a penchant for owing weapons, especially old and classic ones and houses a good collection of these beautiful babies! Quite an interesting fact, isn’t it? Well, there are many other roles that are waiting for Michael Gambon to lay his hands on. We wish to see him more this year!
