See what the actor who played Madame Maxime in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire looks like

Did you know that remembers? Madame Olympe Maxime from ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire“ Was it played by a man? In reality it was a double because it was the leading actress Frances de la Tour, but she was 5 feet 7 inches tall and it was impossible to cast her for a character that was between 12 and 12 feet tall. Ian Whyte, the basketball player (2.16 meters tall), could be a good double for the school teacher. Academia Beauxbatons.

He is considered the most popular “giant” of the seventh art. Ian Whyte was the body double in those sequences where it was necessary to estimate the size of the character, which would be very difficult to achieve if Frances de la Tour was on the screen. But that’s not the only character he’s played on the big screen.

Ian Whyte is 52 years old and a former Welsh basketball player. In addition to Harry Potter took part in “Alien vs. Predator” and “Aliens vs. “Predator: Requiem,” from various TV series giants “game of Thrones(or “Game of Thrones”) and the djinn Sheikh Suleiman in the epic fantasy film “Clash of the Titans.”

The actor also took part in the cinematic universe of the Star Wars series. In the film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Whyte plays the characters Crusher Roodown and Bollie Prindel and also acts as a double for Peter Mayhew, who played Chewbacca.
