KATIE Leung famously gave Harry Potter his first ever kiss but the actress has grown since her days casting a spell over the teenaged wizard.
She is next set to star in ITV’s Strangers but who does she play and what else has she been in? Here’s everything you need to know…
Who is Katie Leung?
Katie Liu Leung was born on August 8, 1987, in Motherwell, Scotland.
The 31-year-old is of Hong Kong descent and she studied art and design at the University of the Arts, London.
It was her father who spotted an advertisement for a role in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and in 2005, she beat out over 3,000 other girls for the part of Cho Chang.
Her character served as Harry Potter’s first romance in the series and their kiss in 2007’s Order of the Pheonix garnered much coverage for being Daniel Radcliffe’s first on-screen kiss.
What else has she been in?
Although she is best known for her role in the Harry Potter series, Katie has also had a number of roles in film and on-stage.
She played the role of Ying in 2013’s mini-series Run and reunited with fellow Harry Potter star Mark Williams in BBC One’s Father Brown.
Last year, Katie starred in T2 Trainspotting and Jackie Chan flick The Foreigner.
On stage, she has appeared in 2012’s Wild Swans and 2017’s Show in Midsummer and her kiss with Daniel Radclifee was nominated for Best Kiss at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards US.
