Twin brothers James and Oliver Phelps played the Weasley twins in the film adaptations of the Harry Potter book series by J.K. Rowling.

Middle East Film & Comic Con (MEFCC), the region’s largest pop culture festival, has a magical announcement: joining the star studded line up are Harry Potter’s Weasley twins, James and Oliver Phelps. The brothers are best known for their portrayals of Fred Weasley (James) and George Weasley (Oliver) in the film adaptations of the Harry Potter book series by J.K. Rowling.
