Default The age old Question: Richard Harris or Michael Gambon

In the first two films we got Richard Harris as Dumbledore, and since his sad passing, we got Michael Gambon from film 3 till the end. I always pictured Richard Harris as Dumbledore. He was perfection for me. What about you? Who did you like more in the role?

I liked both. I feel that Richard was the perfect embodiment of the protective grandfatherly Dumbledore that we saw him at in the beginning. While Michael, and the changes made to the character, represent how we learn new things about Dumbledore and how our opinion may change on the man in the growing darkness.

I 100% agree and honestly I prefer Michael a little more because of this. Richard's Dumbledore was almost too perfect, but in a way Harry sort of views him as such until the last book, so it fits. Michael is more realistic of how Dumbledore ACTUALLY was and I think knowing that Harry is sort of an unreliable narrator, it's made me appreciate his portrayal of him more.

I concur with others on how the late Richard Harris was the perfect image of Dumbledore from head to toe. Even his aura matched that of one who was wise, majestic, and warm. Prior to watching the movies, my image of Dumbledore closely resembled him when reading the books.

Michael Gambon I know is memed out from the Goblet of Fire situation, but his energetic presence also displayed the power that Dumbledore is described to have embodied. The one wizard who Voldemort feared. But overall, I go back to Richard as my favorite depiction of Dumbledore.
