Jamie Waylett, who portrayed Vincent Crabbe in the first six “Harry Potter” movies, has been charged with possession of a homemade explosive device. Police contend that Waylett had a Molotov cocktail with him during his August 8th burglary of a drug store.
While the charge is serious, it might not come as a surprise to most “Harry Potter” fans. In the books and movies, Crabbe is a villain and member of the malicious Slytherin House. As gentle giant and Potter ally Rubeus Hagrid says: “There’s not a single witch or wizard who went bad who wasn’t in Slytherin.”
