In screenshots obtained by the sunJoshua – who played Gregory Goyle in the film series – called movie buff Chris a ‘c***’, ‘r****d’, and asked if he was ‘special in the head’.

In the series of messages on Instagram, Joshua replied: ‘Absolute r****d mate, have [you] looked in the mirror recently?’

As Chris explained he was a ‘big Harry Potter fan’, Joshua continued: ‘Have [you] nothing better to do [you] f***ing loser.’

He went on to ask Chris if he was “special in the head” and upon seeing a small child in the fan’s profile picture, added he felt sorry for his daughter ‘with a dad like you’, claiming it ‘should be illegal for people like you to be parents’.

Chris told the publication: ‘Joshua thought I was being rude to him but I was just being honest.

‘I loved him in Harry Potter and thought he was a brilliant actor. I was so upset – he called me all the names under the sun and even brought my child into it – I will never watch the films again’

MailOnline has contacted Joshua’s representatives for comment.
