HE MIGHT have failed to graduate from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry - but squib caretaker Argus Filch has made the grade at the University of Warwick.
Actor David Bradley, who played the bitter and twisted character in the Harry Potter films, was awarded an honorary Doctor of Letters.
He joined hundreds of graduates for their big day at a ceremony in Warwick Arts Centre.
The 70-year-old began his acting career in 1971, making his debut television appearance as a police officer in comedy Nearest and Dearest.
His distinguished career has also seen him play Cohen the Barbarian in a Sky One adaptation of
The Colour of Magic by fellow Warwick Honorary Graduate, Terry Pratchett.
Bradley now lives in Stratford-upon-Avon, where he serves as president of the Second Thoughts Drama Group.
