Hart shrugs off ‘silly’ audience outburst claims

Hart, best known for playing villainous Professor Quirrell in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was alleged to have jumped from the stage and threatened Gerard Earley, who was in the audience of his show Speaking in Tongues on Monday (23Nov09).

Earley claimed he was giving the cast a standing ovation when Hart took offence and lunged at him.

He told reporters he was considering police action against Hart, who had to be restrained by an usher.
