Daniel Betts On Netflix’s Fate: The Winx Saga
Fans of Fate: the Winx Saga knows that Professor Ben Harvey is a recurring character in the Netflix show originally portrayed by actor Alex Macqueen. Now the role has been re-cast, and actor Daniel Betts will bring Ben in a whole new light. More the character, Ben is the father of Sam and Terra Harvey.
Ben is a Botany teacher at Alfea College. He also attended Alfea and later married a woman named Rose, the mother of his two children. He is an expert in Otherworld flora and fauna, relics, potion-making, magical field training, and forensics.
But the question remains, why the role of Professor Harvey was recast? In the eagerly awaited movie Downton Abbey: A New Era, Alex who originally played Profesor Harvey plays the role of Mr. Stubbins. The main portion of the movie’s shooting began in mid-April 2021, and the title was revealed in August of that same year.
Fate: The Winx Saga‘s second season’s filming began in July 2021 and was finished in November. In light of the fact that the Netflix series was filmed in Ireland, it’s possible that Alex didn’t have enough time to work on both projects. The actor has been putting in work on Becoming Elizabeth, a television show in which he plays Stephen Gardiner.
Filming took place in March 2021, so he may still have been working on this series at the time. The star is on Instagram and he teased his latest role with a picture of himself in costume as Stephen.

Daniel shared, “Atticus is such a wonderful, iconic character but it hadn’t even crossed my mind to mark this as a role I wanted to play in the future. When I first auditioned for the role I was in the middle of doing Dial M for Murder – so my head was in a completely different place to a justice-seeking lawyer! – and so the part crept up on me.”
He added, “I hadn’t read the book for a while so when I re-visited it what truly drew me to Timothy Sheader’s production was the realization that even though we’re dealing with a text which has so much sentimental value and perfection, it’s concerned with how everyone is treated unfairly, and that’s a really urgent political message.”

His notable works to date are Dark Matters, Criminal Justice, Law and Order, U Be Dead, Silent Witness, Time of Your Life, Ultimate Force, Leprechauns, A Touch of Frost, City Central, and Prince of Hearts.
