Tracy Beaker fans stunned as they spot actress Dani Harmer in Harry Potter films

TRACY Beaker fans have been left stunned after they spotted actress Dani Harmer in the Harry Potter films.

The 32-year-old actress has played the titular character on and off since 2002 and the first TV series, The Story of Tracy Beaker.

However, many of her fans didn't realise that Dani also had a small role in the hit movie franchise starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.

An eagle-eyed fan took to Twitter to share a shot from the first Harry Potter movie, The Philosopher's Stone, to point Dani out.

They tweeted: "I think I found @DaniHarmer in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, she is behind Oliver Wood after Hermione speaks."

Dani confirmed she was indeed the extra on screen, tweeting back: "Yep there I am".



The revelation shocked her followers, with one writing: "Omg! I remember reading years ago that you were in it but I've never been able to spot you before! You look so young here!"

Another added: "How many times have I watched this film and never noticed omg."

A third tweeted: "This blows my MIND."

Dani was last seen on screen as Tracy in The Tracy Beaker Survival Files in 2012, but is returning to the role once again for new series, My Mum Tracy Beaker.

The show will follow Tracy as a 30-something mother to her 10-year-old daughter Jess, and will also feature many of the show's original cast members.

The book My Mum Tracy Beaker was released by author Jacqueline Wilson in 2018 and has been adapted into a new CBBC series which begins this month.

My Mum Tracy Beaker premieres on CBBC and BBC iPlayer on February 12.
