One viewer tweeted the scene and wrote: "I think I found @DaniHarmer in Harry Potter and the Philosophers stone, she is behind Oliver Wood after Hermione speaks."

And the actress herself confirmed by retweeting the clip, sharing a laughing emoji and penning: "Yep there I am!"

The film’s release was 2001, making Dani 11 or 12 at the time of filming.

Film fans then reacted by saying they’d never spotted the actress before even after knowing that she was an extra on the hit film.

"How many times have I watched this film and never noticed omg," commented a fan.

Another recalled: "Omg! I remember reading years ago that you were in it, but I've never been able to spot you before! You look so young here!"

Dani Harmer rose to fame as popular character Tracy Beaker and quickly became a household name as a result.

Tracy Beaker dominated screens in the early 2000s as we saw Dani’s character's life play out and all the adventures she had along the way.

Dani played the hit role from 2002 to 2012, starring in five series of The Story of Tracy Beaker and a feature-length film Tracy Beaker's Movie of Me, and three series of Tracy Beaker Returns.

Dani is set to return to screens as the Jacqueline Wilson character in a brand new series – My Mum, Tracy Beaker.

The series will see Dani play the part of a mum to 10-year-old daughter Jess, and it’ll follow Dani’s life as she begins a relationship with her childhood friend-turned-professional-footballer Sean.

Clearly excited about the role, Dani told Radio Times: “I just think I was like everyone else – I was just a bit of fan. I just really wanted to know what Tracy was up to, where she was going, what was happening with her.”
