Jamie Michael Waylett (born 21 July 1989) is an English former actor. His only role is that of Vincent Crabbe in six of the eight Harry Potter films. In 2012, he was imprisoned for his participation in the 2011 England riots.
Waylett was born in Kilburn, London, the youngest of four children. He lived in Camden, London. At the age of nine, he was hit by a car; he was expected to die or suffer severe brain damage, but surprised doctors by apparently recovering full mental faculties.
While Waylett was a student at Emmanuel Primary School, his photograph was taken as part of a general auditioning process for the Harry Potter films. Initially considered for the part of Dudley Dursley, he was cast as Vincent Crabbe after an audition in front of director Chris Columbus. In August 2009, fellow Harry Potter star Joshua Herdman announced that Waylett would not return for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, or for the final film in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. The role of Waylett's character in the plot was taken over by Herdman's character.
