Sometimes it is the story that takes your breath away and sometimes it is the characters that make sure you are left with an inedible mark. And there are some fine moments as well, where both the story and characters come together to offer a delight that can’t be expressed in words. A perfect example of the same is the role of Sirus Black in the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise.On the one hand, where this character has garnered all the love from the fans, on the other hand, the actor who brought Black to life on the big screen has a different opinion.
In a recent conversation with Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, actor Gary Oldman delved into his portrayal of Sirius Black in the iconic ‘Harry Potter’ franchise. Oldman openly acknowledged his own critical view of his performance, deeming it “mediocre” and hinting at what he might have done differently.

While discussing the frequency with which fans associate him with the Sirius Black character, Oldman admitted his work was mediocre. He reflected on the possibility of altering his approach, expressing that if he had read J.K. Rowling’s original books more thoroughly as his co-star Alan Rickman did, he might have approached the character differently, gaining a deeper understanding.
The seasoned actor also shared a valuable perspective on self-critique, emphasizing the importance of not becoming complacent. He said if he would sit and praise his performance, then it would be a sad day, as he would not be able to make the next thing better.

While Gary Oldman has an extensive filmography, his role as Sirius Black remains a standout due to the enduring popularity of the Harry Potter series. Recently participating in a Max special commemorating the 20th anniversary of the movie series, Oldman’s versatile career also includes iconic roles like Jim Gordon in

Christopher Nolan‘s ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy.
Despite his vast success, Oldman hinted at the possibility of retirement, expressing his interest in exploring other pursuits beyond acting as his series, ‘Slow Horses,’ concludes.
