James & Oliver Phelps spice up the FACTS October 2017 line-up!

Harry Potter’s Weasley twins are ready to shake up FACTS

Just one look is enough to recognise the rascally actors James & Oliver Phelps as their equally mischievous alter-egos Fred and George Weasley from the Harry Potter movies. They have held the role from the first movie to the last and every second felt like they were perfectly casted.

Whenever you meet these identical twins, it's like you can always expect them to say 'mischief managed' sooner or later. In their Harry Potter characters Fred & George Weasley, on set, off set...  They're basically awesome everywhere they go, which made them almost instant public favourites. Fun fact: in 2000, at age 14, the twins skipped school exams to attend the open auditions for Harry Potter. In other words: they already had something of the Weasley twins in them even before they had the part.

So lets see if they turn FACTS into their own Weasley Wizard Wheezes shop, shall we? 

Want to meet these incredible actors? Then come to FACTS on the 21st and 22nd of October, in Flanders Expo, Ghent! James and Oliver will be present on both days for signing sessions, photoshoot sessions and Q&A.
