While waiting for actor Kenneth Branagh to call me last Saturday, I stumbled upon 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.' Specifically, the scene where Professor Gilderoy Lockhart (played by Branagh), flies to safety with Harry, Ron and Ginny; Lockhart screams, "Amazing! This is just like magic!" As I watched, it was hard to imagine Branagh pulling off the types of jobs he's had in his career -- a wizard, a prince, a Confederate scientist, a director on the blockbuster superhero epic, 'Thor' -- without the help of some Hogwarts charm.
