Harry Potter Ewok Charged For ‘Sex Act’ Under Juggler’s Hat On Leicester To London Train
NICHOLAS Read has been found guilty of performing a “sex act under cover of a juggler’s hat” on a train in October 2010. That might be enough of a sensation for many – but add to it that fact that Reed played a goblin in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and an Ewok in Star Wars – Return of the Jedi and you have a tabloid classic.
(The panto star might have seen it as his big break into the movies – but he never did get the nod to play James Bond.)
Read, 40, of Wade Close, Stoke-on-Trent, has been given a 20-week suspended sentence for his action on a London to Leicester train.
A 17-year-old girl told Leicester Crown Court that she felt “trapped” sitting next to Read as he performed his juggler’s hat sex act. (He never dropped the balls once! Ta-rar!)
Since his crime, Read’s career has moved away from the films and, as the BBC notes, he has “resorted to hiring himself out to stag parties. The role means being handcuffed to the stag while dressed as a Smurf or Oompa-Loompa.”
Again. The James Bond role eludes him…
