A Former "Harry Potter" Star Is Shonda Rhimes’ Newest Leading Man

All the points for Gryffindor.

Shonda Rhimes’ latest ABC series How To Get Away with Murder is full of familiar faces: The Help’s Viola Davis stars as Annalise Keating, a brilliant law professor; Orange Is the New Black’s Matt McGorry plays one of her students; Gilmore Girls’ Liza Weil and Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s Charlie Weber are her two assistants; and American Dreams’ Tom Verica plays Prof. Keating’s husband.

But it might take you a minute to place Alfie Enoch, who plays Wes Gibbins, the fish out of water in Keating’s class. That’s because it’s been three years — and one serious growth spurt — since he co-starred with Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint in the Harry Potter films.

Yes, Enoch played Gryffindor alum, and Dumbledore’s Army member, Dean Thomas in all eight films!
