Madam Hooch will not appear in second Harry Potter film.
Actress Zoe Wanamaker has reportedly been written out of the Harry Potter film sequel after she made complaints about the actors being underpaid.
Wanamaker also complained about the actors not being paid royalties for the use of their images on merchandise.
The actress - who played games mistress Madam Hooch in the first film - is the only original cast member not to appear in the sequel. It is rumoured that she only earned GBP40,000 for 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone', although the film grossed almost GBP1bn worldwide.
Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry Potter, was originally due to be paid only GBP75,000 for the first film and GBP125,000 for the sequel until actors' union Equity renegotiated his deal and made him a millionaire, the Express on Sunday reported.
