Jamie Waylett Early Life & Career
Waylett was born in Kilburn, London, the fifth of six children born to Alan Waylett (born 1958) and Theresa (née De Freitas, born 1958). He lives in Camden, London. At the age of nine, he was hit by a car; he was expected to die or suffer severe brain damage, but surprised doctors by recovering full mental faculties. While Waylett was a student at Emmanuel Primary School, his photograph was taken as part of a general auditioning process for the Harry Potter films. Initially considered for the part of Dudley Dursley, he was cast as Vincent Crabbe after an audition in front of director Chris Columbus. In August 2009, his Harry Potter co-star Joshua Herdman announced that Waylett would not return for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, or for the final film in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.
Jamie Waylett Arrested
According to a 2012 BBC article, Waylett was convicted of violent disorder, where he admitted to drinking a bottle of stolen champagne. The actor was acquitted of intentionally damaging or destroying the property with the Molotov cocktail he was shown holding. Waylett’s lawyer said the actor had a hard time adjusting to the fame the Harry Potter series brought him. “Although he was lucky to be in the Harry Potter movies, it turned out that it was not such a good fortune,” he said during the mitigation.
The 2011 arrest was not Waylett’s first. In 2009, he was arrested for possession of marijuana after being detained with a friend. During an investigation into the actor’s home, 10 marijuana plants were seized, according to Telegraph. The actor’s last film role was as Crabbe in the 2009 Harry Potter installment The Prince’s Mystery. He did not return for the last two movies in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Part 2.
