15 famous Aston Villa fans including Doctor Who, Harry Potter and WWE stars - gallery
Aston Villa historically are a big club, and Unai Emery is on the first steps of taking them back to where they belong.
It had been a difficult few years for the Villains who languished in the Championship before Dean Smith led them to promotion. A few managers have been in the dugout since, but Emery is now on the quest for glory on the European stage, and right now they stand a good chance of progressing in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
The Premier League standings make for good reading too with Villa currently in fifth during the final international break of 2023. Villa are one-time winners of the European Cup and can you imagine what it would be like to qualify for the UEFA Champions League? There's a lot of football to be played yet, but there's a reason fans can be excited.
Most of the 45,000+ who to Villa Park every week are normal human beings who have regular jobs, but sometimes there are big celebrities who appear amongst the crowd. You probably won't see them in the Holte End, especially when one of them is the future King of the United Kingdom. Nevertheless, fans of the club come from all different parts of the globe, and another celebrity fan is someone who voiced Woody in the legendary Disney franchise Toy Story.
