Best Answer

No. Geoffrey Rush is Australian and couldn't have been in the movies as J.K. Rowling insisted that all the actors were British (unless the character was from Another Country, like Fleur Delacour).

Albus Dumbledore was played by Richard Harris in the first two movies. After his death, Michael Gambon took over the role.
