    No, Baby Harry Potter From The First Film Didn't Play Albus Severus Potter In "The Deathly Hallows: Part 2"

    Would have been great if it were true. But it isn't.

    Potter fans may be familiar with this image, which first appeared online in early 2012.

    And is still being shared in huge numbers.

    Unfortunately it isn't true, as many fans have been quick to point out. In the first film, Baby Harry Potter was played by the Saunders triplets.

    Warner Bros.

    The triplets, two boys and a girl, are credited as a single actor. Their first names are never given.

    In the epilogue of The Deathly Hallows Part 2, Harry Potter's son, Albus Severus Potter, is played by actor Arthur Bowen, according to IMDb.

    Warner Bros.

    Not only that, but the baby pictured in the viral image is actually Toby Papworth, who played Baby Harry Potter in The Deathly Hallows: Part 2, not the Saunders triplets.

    Warner Bros.

    Also, Deathly Hallows is book 7, but films 7 and 8. So it should be "in Harry Potter 8".

    So there.

    I think we all know who was behind this.
