‘Harry Potter’ actress Katie Leung says she was told to deny racism experienced while filming
The now-33-year-old actress is credited with appearing in five films in the franchise, as well as multiple video games. She first appeared in 2005’s “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” and made her final appearance in 2011’s finale film, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.”
The actress recently appeared on an episode of the “Chinese Chippy Girl” podcast and claimed that publicists told her to deny racist attacks she was experiencing at the hands of fans should she ever be asked.
It wasn’t long after her casting in “Goblet” that she began to see racism aimed at her.
