Who would have guessed that this mega-blogger was in Harry Potter?

Zoe Sugg, aka Zoella, is often cited as one of the biggest beauty YouTubers, gurus and bloggers in the world. 

The 27-year-old has been filming YouTube videos in her bedroom for the best part of a decade, but the lifestyle influencer actually started out on a much bigger screen. 

The makeup devotee was actually in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, which she has previously mentioned in videos.

'I was 10 when they first started filming for the first film, and my primary school is in the village they used,' the beauty guru wrote in a blog post.

'So they came and asked everyone in my year (which was probably about 7 children) if we wanted to be extras.'

'Of course we said yes. I was in Hufflepuff. The first year, we were used in Snape's potion class scene.'

'I am not seen in the film annoyingly, but its nice to know i was there. We also got to mingle with the cast, we watched spider man with them.'

The blogger goes on to reveal that Devon Murray, who plays Seamus Finnegan in the film series, asked her out, to which she politely declined.

'I was 10 years old and boys scared me,' she said, adding a 'haha.' 

'I was also in the second film…again..you cannot see me. I went to London to be on the Hogwarts express…which was so exciting.' 

So she has been to Hogwarts AND boasts the biggest channel on YouTube? No we're not jelly, you are.
