Harry Potter star Jamie Waylett is now selling fan videos following prison stint
| Last updated
One of the stars of the Harry Potter film franchise is now selling videos of himself online after a stint in prison.
After that brush with the law, Waylett found himself in bother again after being arrested for handling stolen goods and violent disorder after rioting in London back in 2011.
He was specifically charged with 'violent disorder, having an article with intent to destroy or damage property, and receiving stolen goods’ after being accused of possessing a Molotov cocktail during the looting of a pharmacy.
In March 2012, he was sentenced to two years in prison.
During his court case, the jury were told how Waylett was seen on a ‘number of occasions with a bottle full of petrol with a rag as a wick’.
Despite the fact that he didn’t throw the weapon and allegedly had no intention of throwing it, the court was told that Waylett simply ‘being in possession of it would have been terrifying’ for anyone in the nearby vicinity.
In his defence, the Wood Green Crown Court heard how Jamie was a ‘withered actor by the age of 22’ and that whilst his acting career might have seemed like a piece of luck, ‘it turned out to be not so good fortune’.
These days, Jamie is out of prison and makes messages on Cameo, a platform whereby famous folks can charge a set amount for pre-recording video clips and greetings.
As it stands, Jamie charges £164 per clip.
He looks quite a bit different these days, now having tattoos on his face, but often harkens back to his past within the world of Wizarding World of Hogwarts, ending one video by saying: “Slytherin for life.”
He also started another recent video with ‘Vincent Crabbe, straight outta Hogwarts.”
In case you’re wondering what all that gibberish is, it refers to the fact that his character Crabbe was a member of the Slytherin house at the magical school, along with Harry Potter’s nemesis Draco Malfoy.
Crabbe was a prominent character throughout the books and subsequent film series, always spotted at the side of Malfoy along with his other hulking friend Gregory Goyle, played by Josh Herdman.
It’s not clear what else is going on in Waylett’s life and career at the moment, but he hasn’t been credited with any acting work since his time in prison.
Harry Potter - in case you weren't aware already - was one of the biggest film franchises of all time, on top of being one of the best-selling book series' ever, too.
In total, the eight films made more than $9.5 billion for Warner Bros and a considerable amount for the controversial author J.K. Rowling as well.
There are thousands of famous faces selling their wares on Cameo, although the most successful British celebrity is believed to be James Buckley, who played Jay in The Inbetweeners.
