David Thewlis Interview
Jun 04, 2004
The Washington Post has a new interview with actor David Thewlis(Remus Lupin).
Why did they offer you this role?
I don’t really know. I had been considered for the role of Professor Quirrell [which Ian Hart played in the first movie, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”], so I suppose somebody obviously likes me. I felt an enormous responsibility because internationally there’s a real passion among kiddies for these books. When I went online to do research about werewolves and stuff, I found all this e-mail chat saying things like, “Who is this person playing Professor Lupin? We want someone good-looking, like Jude Law!”
