In the December 2005/January 2006 issue of Premiere magazine, GoF actors Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes are profiled. Brendan Gleeson is highlighted as a "Scene Stealer" on page 34.

"When Brendan Gleeson was 34 years old, he came to a crossroads: He could continue teaching at a Dublin secondary school or pursue his lifelong dream of becoming an actor. Lucky for us he chose the latter . . . So does playing a professor at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry make Gleeson miss the blackboard jungle? 'No,' he says with a laugh. 'I gave what I had to give in that regard.'"

Ralph Fiennes appears on page 164, as one of "The Players" in the Holiday Movie Preview.
"Ralph Fiennes has played some scary guys. . . This might lead one to believe that [he] would be a little, shall we say, intimidating in person. And he would be, if not for his flawless manners and soft voice. How could this cultured gentleman . . . be He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named?
'I've heard that even technicians working on Harry Potter were kind of creeped,' Fiennes says, remembering the time he spent incarnating the resurrected Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. 'I'm a little wizened thing. A bit like Nosferatu.'"
