“Harry Potter” star Timothy Spall, who played the villainous Peter Pettigrew, is super-skinny after his eye-popping recent weight loss.Spall, 57, was a lot heftier when he played Peter Pettigrew (a.k.a. “Wormtail”) in the eight Harry Potter films from 2004 to 2011.
Timothy, who’s earning raves for his latest performance as landscape painter James Turner in the drama “Mr. Turner,” was significantly heavier when he played the villainous Peter Pettigrew in the Harry Potter series from 2004 to 2011.
Spall, who was diagnosed with leukemia in 1996, has been cancer-free since 1998, Examiner reported.
After his recovery, Timothy spent four years traveling around Britain with his wife Shane, with whom he has three children. Spall chronicled his adventures in the documentary, Timothy Spall: Somewhere at Sea.
“I bought the boat after the illness to celebrate being alive and realize now that the voyage was also a delayed reaction to the leukemia,” said Spall.
“It was about sticking two fingers up to fate and saying, ‘You tried to kill me once with illness. Now I’m going to tempt you again. But this time, I’ll do it on my terms.'”
Another “Harry Potter” star who made headlines for his incredible transformation was Matthew Lewis, who played the geeky Neville Longbottom.
Lewis, who lost weight and straightened his teeth, morphed into a stud.
Matthew’s dramatic transformation is similar to that of his character, Neville Longbottom, who transitioned from bumbling teen to hero over the course of the eight Harry Potter films.
