Two pieces of news relating to filming for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Emma Watson’s official website has been updated to state the actress will begin filming her role as Hermione Granger on December 18. Also, the BBC has posted a new feature about “Ballet Shoes,” the new television film starring Emma Watson and Richard Griffiths (Uncle Vernon) that will air in the UK during the Christmas holidays.
