A couple from Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, who have connected their love to the novels of JK Rowling, have found love together.
Luke Williams, 30, and girlfriend Kathryn Burnett, 31, have been together for almost a year after meeting at Alnwick Castle in Northumberland – where scenes from Hogwarts Castle were filmed in the film franchise.
The pair, both great Harry Potter fans, like to work together as their lookalike characters – but now face recognition wherever they go.

Luke, originally from London and who has worked as a Harry Potter lookalike since he was 12, said: & # 39; We are known as the Harry Potter couple.
& # 39; Once we were together, we knew it had to be.
& # 39; The reaction of people when they see us is great, we are asked for photos.
We are both big Harry Potter fans and love the books and movies because we grew up with them, so we are in our dream job.
& # 39; Our love for Harry Potter brought us together and it could not be more perfect.
It is ridiculously cool and it is an honor and a pleasure to do what we do and to work together.

I could not think of any other work that we would rather do – and together we can do even better.
& # 39; It worked perfectly – it was a match made at Hogwarts! & # 39;
Luke and Kathryn met three years ago when Kathryn visited Alnwick Castle, where Luke worked for the past eight years.
The castle is famous as the location where Harry Potter and the quidditch les scenes of the Philosopher's Stone were filmed.
Luke and Kathryn were first friends, even before the couple started dating at Christmas.
Kathryn said: "We were both in Manchester and had just finished working, I was getting ready to go home.

"Luke asked me to have a drink and that was it – we went to the Christmas markets and it was magical.
We decided to keep meeting each other and now we are there.
& # 39; We had been in a distant relationship for a while, but three months ago we met. & # 39;
After the couple came together, Kathryn, who is also performer and historical interpreter, realized her resemblance to Emma Watson.

Now she is also involved in all kinds of wizarding activities, including learning young fans how to ride broomsticks.
The couple often appears together at events and is approached by fans who want to photograph them wherever they are.
Being big fans of Harry Potter also means that they have a pretty impressive collection of merchandise on their YouTube channel that they want to launch.
And both agree that one of their favorite benefits of the job is the chance to travel around the world by giving shows – with their next visit to a children's party in Monaco.
Kathryn said: "Given that Harry ends up in the movies with Ginny and Ron with Hermione, we are breaking the rules.
& # 39; We have had many people who told us and said that we had their dreams come true because they wanted Harry and Hermione to be together. & # 39;
