Rumor “American Actress to Play Lily Potter” False
Mar 01, 2005
There are rumors going around that according to an Italian magazine OotP director David Yates is considering casting an American actress as Lily Potter in OotP. This is false.
This rumor came up last week and a WB rep instantly shot it down to TLC. Casting is not yet underway on OotP, and Geraldine Somerville at this moment is STILL cast as Lily Potter. If Young Lily Potter (technically Lily Evans) remains in the script, there is no reason not to believe she will be British, like every other cast member whose character is British.
