Attenborough Desperate For Harry Potter Role

British actor-turned-director LORD RICHARD ATTENBOROUGH regrets he was never offered a part in the HARRY POTTER films - despite his desperate attempts to be involved. The star saw the movie franchise as a global showcase for British acting talent and laments the fact he was never approached to take part. He says, "I must be the only English actor of my generation who has got absolutely bugger all out of this extraordinary series that has been read by millions and made into movies. "Surely there must have been something I could have played? Even just a few lines here and there? Don't think I didn't try!"
