HARRY Potter actor Nick Moran claimed that Britain was facing a future of wobbly sets and poor quality television once the UK leaves the European Union.
Speaking to talkRADIO, the Harry Potter actor told radio host Matthew Wright that he believed that Brexit would have a spectacularly bad effect on British television.
Nick Moran claimed that television would “go back to what we had in the 1980s” if post-Brexit rules made it harder for actors to live and work across Europe.

Mr Moran said: “I think it will be spectacular. In a bad way.
“Nobody really understands that most hybrid television is co-productions, even Downton Abbey is a French co-production.
“If they cease to be those things then they’ll go back to what we had in the 80s, which was television shows which have no extras in or scenery which wobbles when the door closes.
He continued: “The fact I can go and work anywhere in Europe without a visa when that stops happening things change.”
Mr Moran also claimed that he had spoken to Hollywood producers who said that if Brexit happens, they’ll move their productions to Atlanta, Georgia, which would give production companies more favourable tax breaks.
He warned: “It will be a painless exit for them.”
“Maybe it won’t affect us, but I think what it will do is close down the tax breaks, close down the European co-productions and we’ll be watching poor television or stuff we’ve imported.”
