  • Sorry, don't have a clearer screenshot ATM. Anyone who has one, would be grateful for improvement. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Oct 28 '15 at 0:41
  • Per (the old) Pottermore - "Mrs Warbeck reluctantly consented to her daughter’s enrolment at Hogwarts, but subsequently bombarded the school with urging the creation of a choir, theatre club and dancing class to showcase [Celestina's] talents." – Valorum Oct 28 '15 at 0:48
  • While I admit that my answer is somewhat disappointing, I don't think there's any extra info that can be added. – Valorum Jul 1 '16 at 13:11

In-Universe

The only characters known (or strongly suspected) to be in the Frog Choir are

  • Bem (named in the script and closed captions but not actually named in the book or film credits)
  • Celestina Warbeck (Named on the old Pottermore site as having been deeply interested in the school's choir. Note that it's not explicitly stated that she was in said choir)

Beyond that, the members are simply listed on the wiki page as "Unnamed players".


Out of universe

The choir members were actually students of the London Oratory School's all-boy "Schola" choir, who also provided the actual singing.

Several (presumably non-singing) female extras appear to have been scattered in amongst them to make the choir look unisex.

  • So none of them were actual actors shown otherwise to be Hogwarts students elsewhere in the movie or credited? – DVK-on-Ahch-To Oct 28 '15 at 1:29
  • @DVK FYI Ekow Quartey played Bem in the films :) – CandiedMango Oct 28 '15 at 2:01
  • @DVK - The student known as Bem appeared in both the choir and as a student in a later film. The line he speaks in the film is attributed in the book to the student Bem. – Valorum Oct 28 '15 at 6:41
  • Where does a student called Bem come up in the book? – user13267 Nov 3 '15 at 7:31
  • @user13267 - It's decidedly convoluted. There's a discussion here about whether the fact that his line in the book is credited in the closed-caption as "Bem: " is sufficient to name him in subsequent films. I err on the side of yes. He is also named in the screenplay – Valorum Nov 3 '15 at 11:42
