David Thewlis Accidentally Made Harry Potter Professor Lupin A Gay Crackhead

David Thewlis, who plays Professor Lupin in Harry Potter beginning in the franchise’s third film Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, says director Alfonso Cuarón told him to play the character as if he were a “gay junkie.” Only when Thewlis realized his character ended up with Nymphadora Tonks, a woman, did he have to, in the words of Moviefone, “reign in his gayness.” But this explains why Lupin was always pushing chocolate on innocent Harry.
