Gizmo is a male snowy owl who played Hedwig in most scenes in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. At least two additional snowy owls were used for flying shots, to help offset Gizmo's workload, and another for lighting tests. Gizmo was trained by Gary Gero.
