The interesting story of Josh Herdman, one of the actors in the famous saga, who currently stands out in mixed martial arts

The film saga turns 20. The cast of actors who starred in these films has come together again to celebrate the anniversary and tell how those years of filming were. Their experiences are captured in ‘Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts’, a documentary that HBO Max will premiere on January 1, 2022.

All those young actors who have almost debuted in the film of ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ have changed their lives. Many continue their careers in the cinema, but there are those who in these years opted to try the sport of mixed martial arts.

Josh Herdman played the role of Gregory Goyle, one of the members of the Draco Malfoy gang that made life miserable for Harry Potter. He made his MMA debut in April 2016. He defeated Polish Janusz Walachowski at Romford’s City Pavillion. Before, in 2010, he had tried jiu jitsu.

My training was based on traditional Japanese jiu-jitsu for five years, I am a black belt, ”explains the actor, who thus followed in the footsteps of his father, who was a boxer and rugby player.

After that first victory, he starred in another fight in February 2018 that also ended with victory. “It is a raw, exciting and unpredictable sport. I find it much more interesting than boxing, although I appreciate the artistic beauty that can be there. According to my training, my place was in MMA, ”Herdman stated in an interview a few years ago.

For a few years now, he has been solely dedicated to MMA from the point of view of training to improve his physical condition while keeping his acting career alive.
