Liam Payne's Bought The Harry Potter Car Because He's A Total Dude

One Dork-rection, more like...

This is Liam Payne from popular musical combo One Direction.

This is a blue Ford Anglia 105e.

It’s not the sort of car boyband members usually buy. They usually buy big silly flashy ones like Justin Bieber’s leopard-print Audi.

Payne’s not your average boyband member though. Liam Payne is a goddamn Potterholic.

The dude eats, sleeps and breathes Harry Potter. When he turned 22 earlier this year he had a Harry Potter themed party.

He identifies as Gryffindor after taking a test online.

And now he’s gone and bought one of the 15 Ford Anglias used in filming the Harry-and-Ron-go-for-a-fly sequence in Harry Potter and the Chamber Of Secrets.

Liam’s no half-arsed nerd – he’s also got all kinds of rad dork shit like life-size Spider-Man and Iron Man figures.

He’s got a long way to go in the nerdy celebrity stakes though. Nicolas Cage used to own Action Comics #1 (featuring the first appearance of Superman) and a dinosaur skeleton.
