A new video interview with Harry Potter actor Chris Rankin is online in which he speaks briefly about his hopes for returning as Percy Wesley in the final two films. Mr. Rankin sat down with TV3 in New Zealand to talk about his involvement in the Armageddon Pop Culture Expo and his experiences working on the Harry Potter films. When the topic of whether he’ll be returning for the sixth and seventh films, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” came up, Mr. Rankin replied: “Who knows?”

Mr. Rankin went on to note that he’d love to return as Percy Weasley and said:

“It’s unlikely that he’ll be in the sixth film but for the seventh film, judging by the book, he should be there.”

This interview also features his thoughts on fellow Harry Potter actor Dan Radcliffe’s much talked about play “Equus” and the small professional theater company he created in England.
