- Sir Richard Harris (Professor Albus Dumbledore) died a few weeks before the film's release.

- Jude Law was deemed too young to play Gilderoy Lockhart.
- Daniel Radcliffe has said that "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" is his favorite book.
- Hugh Grant was originally cast as Gilderoy Lockhart, but was forced to withdraw at the last moment, because of scheduling conflicts.
- It was Jason Isaacs' idea to have Lucius Malfoy sport long blond hair, as well as carry a walking stick, inside of which, he would conceal his wand. He grew attached to the walking stick, and at one point tried to walk off with it, though he was caught.
- Robbie Coltrane had to turn down a part on The West Wing (1999) to reprise his role as Hagrid.
