DOUBLE DORE; Harris's stand-in lands Potter role.
RICHARD Harris's body double in the Harry Potter films is set to take over his Dumbledore role.
Harry Robinson, 72, is not only the image of Harris, who died from cancer aged 72 on Friday, but has mastered his voice too.
He fills in for him in several scenes in The Chamber Of Secrets and now wants to take over as headmaster Dumbledore in the third film, Prisoner Of Azkaban.
A source on the set said: "Producers have told Harry there's a very strong chance of him getting the part." And Harry said: "It would be my tribute to someone I was very fond of."
Daniel Radcliffe, 13, will return as Harry in the Prisoner, although he has grown eight inches since landing the role in 2000. Chamber of Secrets is darker than The Philosopher's Stone, which made pounds 200million in the US alone, the second-highest grossing film of all time.
