The makers of the Harry Potter series, Warner Bros are set to lose about 3.6 million dollars, to enable Harry and his friends to take their exams in real life.
Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson who play Harry and Hermione in the series will sit for their Advanced Supplementary (AS) levels and General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) exams this summer.
Their academic pursuit has stalled the progress of the fifth movie Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by a month. "Not everyone is going to be paid, but Warner Bros are having to factor in an extra two million pounds into the budget to pay for studio hire and offices," a source was quoted by Contactmusic,as saying.
Radcliffe is studying English literature, history, religion and philosophy, while co-star Watson will take the exams for standard subjects including English, Maths and Science.
