If you thought attending the midnight premieres and taking a vacation to Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando made you a Harry Potter super fan, Liam Payne just one-upped you big time.
Wait…One Direction and Harry Potter in the same story? This is my lucky day.
Payne was already a known Potter fan after he had a HP-themed party for his 22nd birthday, but he’s gone even further.
On Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 Breakfast Show this morning, one-fourth of 1D confessed to putting down a big chunk of his earnings to take home a piece of Harry’s world. That piece? The flying car Ron and Harry use to get to Hogwarts in The Chamber of Secrets. 
“I bought the Harry Potter car and I put it in my garden,” he said. “You know the blue car, the flying car? I bought one because I’m a bit of a geek.”
There you have it, folks – Liam Payne is a Potterhead.
While he didn’t spill exactly how much dough he parted with for the car, we can only imagine that the iconic prop cost a pretty penny.
If your next question was about which house Payne would be sorted into, we’ve got the answer to that too. Apparently, he and a friend resorted to an online quiz to act as the sorting hat.
“I did the test on the website,” he told the host. “My friend got Hufflepuff and I got Gryffindor. He was so annoyed.”
Excuse me while I daydream about spending a Harry Potter Weekend on the couch next to Liam…
