22. Favorite cast member: Gary Oldman. He is such a good actor, and I enjoy watching him in all of his other movies, especially Batman. He does a wonderful job of portraying Sirius Black, and I love how Daniel Radcliffe looks up to him apart from him being Harry's protective godfather in the movies.
