The Edinburgh Evening News has a new interview with actor David Tennant, who will play the role of Barty Crouch, Jr. in the upcoming Goblet of Fire film. While the article does not have much information about the film itself, it does give some background about the actor, and addresses his experience about being in the fourth Potter film.

“It’s just great,” he gushes. “It just such a huge, big thing isn’t it?… an enormous rumbling franchise, and it’s nice just to visit that world for a bit.”

Tennant, who was brought up in Paisley, has worked with some big names during his career but, given that Harry Potter reads like a veritable who’s who of British acting, was there anyone he was in awe of?

“Not really,” he says. “I knew Michael Gambon, Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman anyway, having met them or been in things with them down the years.

“It was actually just really good fun, particularly getting to listen to Michael telling ribald tales for a few days.”
