Ian Hart is an English actor best known for playing Professor Quirrell in the 2001 film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.

He also notably portrayed John Watson in two BBC One Sherlock Holmes TV films (2002, 2004). Despite the relative unpopularity of these films among Sherlock Holmes fans, Hart's Watson is generally well-regarded.[1]

Hart has played John Lennon in three productions: most notably in Backbeat (1994), but also the film The Hours and Times (1991, famously slashy) and the Playhouse Presents TV play "Snodgrass" (2013, an AU about a fifty-year-old Lennon).

Unlike many Harry Potter actors, Ian Hart RPF is essentially nonexistent.

Interactions with Fans

In late 2001, Ian Hart participated in a YoungABCtales.com interview in which he answered questions sent in by young Harry Potter fans.[2]
