In one of the first takes of Hermione's, Cinderella Moment, Emma Watson actually tripped in that fancy dress and fell down the stairs.

2. What Happened While Training For The Underwater Scene?

The underwater scenes were shot in a huge purpose-built in tank with a blue-screen background.

Daniel Radcliffe looks a lot like the book version of Harry Potter in this film as his hair in the film is the longest and messiest in the entire series. In the book of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, it's said that Harry Potter has long and messy hair.

5. Cedric Diggory vs. Edward Cullen

Robert Pattinson has stated that he would rather play Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter series than play Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga series.

6. Katie Leung as Cho Chang

Katie Leung hadn't intended to audition for the role of Cho Chang, her father had told her where the audition was being held and she decided to go to the audition before her shopping trip.

7. Which Title To Go For... Hmm

The newspaper headline, "Harry Potter and the Triwizard Cup", was going to be the title for the film, but they decided to stay with, "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire".

8. Left or Right?

When Harry is entering the maze, Mad EyeMoody signals to Harry that he should turn to his left. There is a wide belief that if one keeps turning left in a maze, he or she shall find their way out.

9. Where Is Molly Weasley?

This is the only Harry Potter film that does not star Julie Walters, who plays Molly Weasley.

10. No Dursleys?

This is the first Harry Potter film that does not show the Dursleys.

11. What Creature Is This?

The creature Mad-Eye Moody torments in his Dark Arts class was suppose to be a spider, like it's been said in the book and in the script, but it's virtually identical to a real animal, known as the tailless whip-scorpion. Some 130 species of the tailless whip-scorpion are known, falling their own toxomonic order, a Amblygid, under the class of Arachnida, and are neither scorpions or spiders. Although, Moody says this one is deadly, but real Amblygids are quite harmless, though they are almost big.

12. Ice Sculptures

This film didn't use real ice sculptures, since real ice would melt, but the ice sculptures at the Yule Ball were made of Resin, the Resin was clear that it appeared pink beneath the white stage lighting. To solve this issue, blue lighting gels were used to turn it icy blue.

13. No Quidditch

This is the first Harry Potter film in the series that doesn't include the Quidditch matches in Hogwarts because of the Triwizard Tournament.
