HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS star Kenneth Branagh was left surprised last Thursday (16SEP04) - when officials at the American embassy in London failed to recognise him.

The OSCAR-winning film-maker was queuing for a work visa, but was taken aback when he got to the front of the queue only to be asked, "What do you do?"

So, 43-year-old Branagh adopted his best thespian voice and replied, "I'm an actor!"
