London: A teenage cast member of the Harry Potter movies has appeared in a London court and admitted to growing marijuana.
Jamie Waylett pleaded guilty to growing the drug during a hearing Thursday at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court.
The 19-year-old Waylett plays school bully Vincent Crabbe in all six installments of the film franchise.
Police found eight bags of cannabis and a knife during a search of a car Waylett was riding in. They then searched his mother's house and found 10 marijuana plants.
Waylett pleaded guilty to producing cannabis, which carries a maximum 14-year sentence. His friend John Innis pleaded guilty to drug possession.
Judge Timothy Workman said the pair would be sentenced Tuesday.
