No Phlegm for a Half-Blood Prince!
Feb 11, 2008
Ahem Ahem! There will be no Phlegm for the Half-Blood Prince!…well no part for actress Clemence Poesy in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie that is. In a new interview with MTV, the actress says she has not been asked back to reprise her role as Fleur Delacour (aka Phlegm) for the sixth Harry Potter film. Indicating she has not read the final three books (including OotP which is now on DVD) and hopes to read them on her next vacation, she is quoted as saying:
Somebody already told me the end of ˜Order of the Phoenix,’ and I was like, ˜You’re ruining everything!'” PoÃ©sy laughed, since she plans to read the remaining books on her next vacation “back to back.” Still, she can’t resist asking for one one spoiler: “Has Harry done some bad things?”
She is uncertain if her character will be back as well for the film of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but recently was reunited with some fellow Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire actors for her recent movie, In Bruges which also stars Brendan Gleeson (Mad Eye Moody) and Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort). In this new film, “Ralph Fiennes, who as Voldemort is always trying to kill Harry, now playing a hitman boss named ¦Harry. “Isn’t that funny?” exclaimed PoÃ©sy. “We didn’t tease [Ralph] about it, but maybe we will now. I had met Brendan before, and he was really sweet. He liked scaring kids with his costume, showing it to all the extras, who were like, ˜How do you do that with your eye?”Not that PoÃ©sy isn’t above scaring the kids as well. “It would be nice of you not to write that’ she teased. “The kids think I have powers, so I can say, ˜Be careful, otherwise I can turn you into a frog! I’ve learned.’ So don’t tell anyone I don’t have witchcraft powers.”
