FILMING HARRY POTTER IN THE LAiW QA
He -who -was -never-here

While the Law Quadran-
gle might seem like the ideal
setting for students tn mix
potions, enjoysa mug of butter-.
beer, or practice a spell, they
shouldn't don their house-
specific robes or grab their
wands just yet.
The myth that Harry Put-
ter originally considered the
University as a setting for
the famed school of wizardry
might provide an intriguing
tale for freshmen on campus,
but the myth is just that, a
myth..
Lee Doyle, the chief of staff
in the office of Vice President
for Communications and the
director of the University's
film office, said though she
wasn't previously aware of the
myth that Harry Potter origi-
nally considered filming on
campus, she knows it's false.

"I'm going to have to say
that's a myth," Doyle said.
"They never contacted us
about (filming here)."
But while the wonderful
world of wizardry may not
have considered filming at the
University, there are several
movies that have filmed on
campus.
To date, Doyle said a total
of nine movies have used
parts of the University as a
backdrop, and several have
filmed scenes in the Law
Quadrangle.
"Although Harry Potter
never filmed there, we have
filmed three movies at the
Law School," Doyle said.
The law school in one of the
three movies, "Answer This!"
was actually the University's
own Law School, while the
other two - "Salvation Boule-

yard" and "Trust" - used the
Law Quad as s more generic
backdrop.
Another movie, "Convic-
tion," originally looked into
filming at the Law School,
but found it to be too large G
and historic to fit the movie, 'hc, sarn ilr
Swank, tells the story of Betty
Anne Waters, a law school stu- dn h okdt vrun n
her brother's murder convic-
tion. -i
"They needed a smaller,
more modern school," Doyleu
said of the movie. "We wound
up filming at Pierpont Coin-
mona on North Campusr
instead."
"Conviction" premieres
next month and will be they
first of those filmed at the Uni- MARISSA MCCLAIN/oaily
versity to reach theaters. The Law Quadrangle was not aware the backdrops considered tor the filming of
- KYLE SWANSON the Harry Patter motion pictures.
