Veteran star Helen Mirren, who is slated to host the upcoming “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Houses Tournament” series, believes she should choose the Slytherin-themed green house in Hogwarts School of Magic.
She said, “If I had to choose, I would probably choose Slytherin because there is a punk side to Slytherin that attracts me. You know, bad boys on motorcycles, that kind of thing.
In famed author JK Rowling’s best-selling book series and its spin-off franchise starring Daniel Radcliffe, House Slytherin is teeming with darker wizards, including the Malfoy family, Bellatrix Lestrange, and the infamous Lord Voldemort.
Helen Mirren’s admissions come as she leads the four-part competition for Cartoon Network, which will see players compete in teams of three for their respective Hogwarts houses – be it Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin.
Each house will then compete against each other to answer questions about the beloved series with the goal of winning a trip to the “Wizarding World” theme parks in New York and Orlando, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren said the show was a lot of “hard work”, she was also amazed at the Potter passion still held by many.
Helen Mirren told PEOPLE, “My God, this is hard work. “It’s really hard work! What these people are doing is not a picnic. But I have to say I had so much fun. I liked it. It was tiring. At the end of each day, I would fall to bed completely exhausted. But it was a lot of fun.
“I had no idea the depth and breadth of the absolute engagement with these stories all over the world, of all races, of all genders, of all ages. People got really, really involved in these stories and I find that in itself a really great story. “
