The cast recently met up to mark the 20th anniversary of the first film’s release for a HBO special, but JK was reported to not be involved.

Former Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan recently slammed the cast after they appeared to have failed to support the author of the hit wizarding saga, JK Rowling.

The author has ruffled a few feathers regarding some of the things she’s said about the transgender community in recent years, sparking some of the Harry Potter cast members to speak out.

Chris Rankin, who starred as Percy Weasley in the films, described JK’s views towards the transgender community as “damaging”.

Back in 2019, JK defended a woman who lost her job for sharing anti-transgender tweets , and later appeared to mock a charity for using the term “people who menstruate”.

Chris said of JK, as per Mail Online: “I do a lot of work with charities that are LGBTQ+ focused.

“A lot of my family are members of the community. You can probably guess where my allegiances lie in that respect.”

He added: “When a trans person says they are male or female, that is what they are and that is how we should treat them. It is damaging to them to say otherwise.”
