Director Chris Columbus aimed to film as much of "Sorcerer's Stone" on-location as he could. While later films used more studio shooting, it was shot at major sites in England including King's Cross, Durham Cathedral and Alnwick Castle.

They were scrapped after Watson struggled to speak with them. Rowling herself was offered a cameo in the film as Harry's mother, Lily, who appears in the Mirror of Erised. Rowling declined, and the role was given to Geraldine Somerville.
