A slew of actors from the Harry Potter series were in attendance tonight at the European premiere of the newest Batman film, The Dark Knight. The event took place at Odeon Leicester Square in London, England and was host to the film’s cast along with many other actors including: Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley), and Jessie Cave (Lavender Brown). A number of photos from the red carpet featuring these actors are now starting to appear online via Getty, WireImage, and Rex Features. We shall update as more photos from the event appear online.

Gary Oldman wasn’t there? hmmm, and he was in it. Anyway, what a fantastic movie that was. Too bad hbp trailer didn’t premire with it.

1st?

Avatar Image says:

Also, the dude who was cast as 18 year old Voldie was there too, as Evanna’s date.

Avatar Image says:

Well, I don’t know what Getty is thinking because that does not look a thing like Bonnie Wright.

Avatar Image says:

They miss label alot of picture…Bonnie wasn’t in any that they said she was. All Jesse Cave.

Avatar Image says:

Evanna looks amazing. lol they mixed up Jessie Cave with Bonnie Wright

Avatar Image says:

why does jessie cave always have a ribbon/bandana looking thing in her hair all the time?

But anyway Evanna Lynch looks amazing! i love her dress!

Here’s the picture of Bonnie: http://www.bonniewrightonline.com/galleries/displayimage.php?album=202&pos=0

It’s a fan photo of her.

Avatar Image says:

wow, its weird because its LUNA and her date looking classy and put together and LAVENDER and her date looking slightly cough eccentric… yeah, i KNOW its Evanna and Jessie, but it still makes my head spin a little.

Avatar Image says:

OMG! Tom looks as hot as always, im so jealous of that girl! and evanna is looking the best ive eva seen her, along with Jessie :)

Avatar Image says:

Potter fans for The Dark Knight!!! :P

Avatar Image says:

jessie looks very eccentric

Avatar Image says:

Thats really considerate of them- yes it is very strange that Gary isnt there. Him and the rest of the Dark Knight cast and crew have alot to celebrate now. It broke records with an opening weekend final tally of 158 million dollars. It deserves ever penny of it. Believe me- I went to see it and I cant wait to see it again. Heath Ledger is amazing as the Joker- he should get the Oscar the are talking about giving him he deserves it. It is truely the best movie I have seen in a long time. Action, suspense, drama,... all put into one. You do feel alittle strange watching Heath knowing hes gone- and after its over you miss him even more than before- but you know hes smiling from above.

Avatar Image says:

no to say something bad but sure Tom has lost his cuteness he looks weird without the Harry Potter makeup.

Avatar Image says:

They all look pimping! :)

Avatar Image says:

Filming is over and Tom’s hair is still blonde?

Avatar Image says:

That movie was amazing! Ican’t wait to see it again. The Joker was by far the best movie villain I’ve seen in years. I just loved it!!

Avatar Image says:

emma wasnt there?lol..proves she’s partying away in Ibiza doesnt it?dan?

Avatar Image says:

You can tell that Evanna makes all the dresses that she wears to big events. And I think she might actually make her shoes too. Which is pretty cool. I wonder if she’s trying to get into the fashion industry?

Avatar Image says:

Why would dan emma and rupert not being there prove anything? not to sound angry or anything… but it’s not thier mvoie so they don’t have to appear…these potter actors probably like it more than those three thus want to go to the premiere the other might be content to see it another time?

Avatar Image says:

Lol

Avatar Image says:

Is Evanna Lynch’s date really 18 year old voldy?

Avatar Image says:

Evanna looks so cute and pretty. Love her dress! I hope they have Slughorns’ party in the movie because I would really really like to see Luna in a dress :D

Avatar Image says:

I am glad you guys pointed out the mix up, I thought I was going crazy. I was like that’s not Bonnie, WTF. But then if you look through them some of them had her name and it was only Evanna in the pic.

Avatar Image says:

Poor Bonnie Wright… Don’t they know her name? I’m really starting to feel sorry for this girl. Her character is Harry POtter’s girlfreind and yet katie Leung got more press than her.

And I miss Heath Ledger too. He could have been a very great actor but that’s the tragedy of those who die too soon. We could only imagine all the greatness they could have had, if only…

Avatar Image says:

WB may have made one of the biggest mistakes of their lives by not putting the HBP trailer before a movie that was expected to shatter all-time opening weekend records, and one which would allow them to reach as wide and varied an audience as possible. Shame.

Avatar Image says:

I totally agree Phairre. And also when The dark knight had o much publicity. I don’t know which age limit it is on The dark knight but could that be it?Because if The dark knight is 15 years, and Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is 12 or 13 I can undertand.

By the way, didn\t the Phelps look REALLY REALLY hot that evening?. I’m practalliy drooling over the computer>P

Avatar Image says:

she is so pretty! im jealoz watz her name! is she toms girlf

Avatar Image says:

Evanna Lynch is already dating someone? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

is that toms girlfriend? is she a model??? looks like roxanne from hollyoaks

Avatar Image says:

omg sooo jelousssssssss of that girl with tom felton. he looks s handsome. does any know who she is?

Avatar Image says:

what’s wrong with jassie cave? she looks …mad and that grin. and why didn’t anyone tell her to take off this ribbon in her hair? she looks like a little girl. the dress would have been okay, but why did she bring that huuuuge bag? did she want to sleep over at the cinema? evanna looks great, she’s getting more and more fabulous!

Avatar Image says:

Tom’s date = Scarlett Byrne aka Pansy Parkinson? http://www.harrypotterspage.com/images/photogallery/displayimage.php?album=47&pos=35

Avatar Image says:

I KNEW that wasn’t Bonnie Writght But I didn’t know [as some seem to suspect and I STILL don’t know] that that was Jessie Cave! She looks kinda “shiney” and “over cooked”...like she spent too much time, in the sun, and just put on her sunscreen. Oh, well. Tom looked dashing, as always, and the Phelps boys were also pretty hot! [LOVE that red shirt/red tie combo!] Is it me, or is only the very tip of the Phelps Twins hair still ginger? OF COURSE TOM’S HAIR IS STILL WHITE! The more interesting thing is he still HAS hair! LOL. From what I’ve heard, he likes it very short. Does anyone know his REAL haircolor? I believe it IS blonde….WB just needed it more WHITE, for ‘Draco’ Great showing, gals and guys! Dashing and cute as ever!

Avatar Image says:

Good catch, dHermY! I thought that was pretty lame, myself! BTW…who cares if Ivana makes her own clothes? At least they’re not taking pictures of her feet, and she doesn’t have unnatural body parts showing! I think she looks cute!

Avatar Image says:

I think the Phelps twins are surprisingly cute. For some reason, they don’t look as good in the actual films, maybe because they’re supposed to look goofy or maybe just because red hair doesn’t suit them.

And Jessie Cave is adorable. Aww, who cares if she looks a little wacky! To me, she looks like a modern-day version of Cosette from Les Miserables. And I happen to love her date’s outfit, too! He looks… adorkable.

Tom Felton looks very dashing (I love his hair), but I’m always stunned by how much like Draco Malfoy he always looks. Even his facial expressions. Of all the cast members, he’s the one who could’ve walked off of the pages of the book. And I love his dark eyebrows… they definitely make him look more like his “dad”. Think his girlfriend might need to get some longer clothes, though.

Anyone notice someone with the last name ‘Cattermole’ took the pictures? That made me laugh, thinking of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.”

Avatar Image says:

I’m so glad that it was pointed out that it wasn’t Bonnie it the pictures. I kept staring at them thinking “that looks nothing like Bonne Wright!” Anyway, Evanna looked fantastic!! Go Luna! : )

Avatar Image says:

Poor Jessie. To be mistaken for Bonnie over and over again, sigh. And poor Bonnie, that they thought this girl with Evana was her! I guess they figured sandy blond hair, red hair, it’s all the same!

I’m actually pretty irritated about this. Bonnie apparently arrived in a gorgeous dress and they don’t have a single real shot of her, since they already assumed that the girl with Evana was her, grrr!

Avatar Image says:

The first picture i saw, i figured they had just slipped and called Jesse Bonnie. But then they did that on every single ONE?! And Bonnie was ther but they didn’t manage to get a single picture of her? And I thought Getty Images was professional. So annoyed. >| But I thought Evanna looked wonderful (her date too), although I would have imagined her to be in the clothes Jesse was wearing in a lot of ways.

Avatar Image says:

Gary Oldman wasn’t there because he doesn’t like these things. I watched an interview with him last week, and Gary said: “I’m an actor. Fame is a complety different career and I have never had the energy for it”. Or something like that. I think that’s one of the reasons Daniel admires him so much. Dan is like that too, he doesn’t like to go to these kind of events. He attends the HP premieres of course, he carries most of the weight of these movies over his young shoulders, and he is very good promoting them. But Gary doesn’t have that weight so he can decide to not even attend his own movies premiers. Plus, with all the money WB has spend promoting this Batman movie… they don’t even need to do premieres, I’ve never seen WB doing such a big promotion for a HP movie. Maybe now the book series is completed, it is a mistake to forget about the movies promotion…

Avatar Image says:

I am Queen Dork. I just emailed Getty to tell them that they’d incorrectly called Jessie Bonnie. Poor Jessie. Just entering the limelight, and they think she’s someone else. Of course, who would be interested in seeing pictures of the actress who plays Harry Potters future wife and has been in all of the movies? Poor Bonnie gets no love. It was all used up on Katie as Harry’s girl. Plus, no love for Matthew Lewis either. Come on! We love Neville! I hope someone unearths pictures of Matt and Bonnie because what they have at Snitchseeker isn’t much and the wire reports have none.

Oh, and according to SnitchSeeker, the guy with Evanna plays 18 year old Riddle. Now, was it really necessary to cast 2 different guys to play 16 year old Tom and 18 year old Tom? People don’t change much in 2 years.

Avatar Image says:

They all look great. I am not sure about Jessie’s outfit it reminds me of my teen years of the eighties and I would like to forget them (bad time for fashion all around) :)

Is the really cute guy with Evanna really the 18 year old voldy? He is really good looking. You go Evanna!

On the same note is Tom’s date really the girl who plays Pansy? When I first saw the photo I thought she looked a lot older than Tom but then I looked at a larger one and thought she was not as old as I first thought. She does look to old to play Pansy but maybe it is just the photo or just my eyes :). She is really pretty though just not what I thought of when I think of Pansy but she is the type of girl I once heard Tom say in an interview he likes-dark hair olive skin very pretty girl they look cute together.

Avatar Image says:

What do you mean Heath Ledger could have been a great actor???He was already…...for sure!!!!!!!! This performance more than proves it…...as do all of his others.

Nice to see the HP actors there ….. no big deal more weren’t ,it is thier business what they go to and when.I think the others are busy or getting ready to be VERY busy soon .

Avatar Image says:

There’s a very good reason Gary Oldman wasn’t at this premiere. It took place in London and Gary Oldman lives in LA with his children. He was at the LA premiere Friday night. Evanna and Tom looks the best out of all them, although James and Oliver aren’t too bad themselves…

Avatar Image says:

Its weird that Gary Oldman wasn’t there because he was at the New York premear, I was there he was really nice, taking lots of pictures and signing alot of autographs.

Avatar Image says:

I didn’t find it weird Gary Oldman wasn’t there …...stars don’t always attend all the Premiers and Gary probubly couldn’t for some reason. There have been times Dan couldn’t be at a Premirer for a HP or one of the other trio. I’ve seen it happen…...Life just happens.

Evanna does like nice…and rather glamerous ….just shows she can when she wants.It was good to get to see Ralph’s nephew before the film is seen,he is a handsome young man.The twins look nice too.

Avatar Image says:

Okay, after tiring research, I`ve come to the conclusion that the guy with Evanna is the teen Voldemort or whatever age. Lol. :) *Well, from my eyes he is.

( http://i34.tinypic.com/sv5mhz. jpg )

Remove the spaces …. that’s so the guy with Evanna it’s almost funny to me. =D BTW, Jessie Cave’s smile looks so fake! :( Her outfit is cute though. :]

Avatar Image says:

more news: A stone bridge has been built to connect the Hogwarts grounds to the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade. An extremely long take along the bridge has been shot for a sequence that (obviously) features Hogsmeade. Only David Yates, Bruno Delbonnel and other crew were present during the filming (that is, no cast members were present). If left in unedited, this take will easily outstrip Alfonso Cuaron’s well-received long takes in Children of Men. (this was “filler transition material” being shot. the length of the take was intentional)

a deluge of HBP info may be expected in 10 days time

Avatar Image says:

Good to hear that ||.

Avatar Image says:

Wow… well Evanna and Jessie Cave went… Its kinda weird that the public will think “who, who are they? ” Evanna was secondary in the film and Jesssie cave has neer been seen on camera yet (except for her little tv shows) I can understand tom being there but those 2 are not exactly A list celebs… they where in one movie.. and played secondary characters…

Avatar Image says:

EVANNA!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

They all look brilliant!* James and Oliver look amazingly handsome!* Squee!*

Avatar Image says:

james and oliver look cute.. but who were those girls with them?? I hope james isn’t dating that girl..he could do a lot better….like maybe me!?? just kidding.

Evanna looks great too. I think her dress is really pretty.

Avatar Image says:

Ok I must say this: Evanna has evolved SO much since she was cast as Luna-she is beautiful and lately it really shows! Those eyes are so big and pretty. It’s funny but it seems like Jessie Cave is in the position that Evanna was a year ago-she ought to hire a stylist or something (just my opinion though!).

Avatar Image says:

Oh and one more thing: I just want to give a shout out to the Phelps twins and tom felton looking nicely suited & booted, and finally, Roxanne McKee and Gemma Bissix of Hollyoaks fame, yayy!! (I think one would only know who they are if they live in the UK or abroad like me but was lucky enough to discover this gem of a tv show via youtube). Yayy!!

Avatar Image says:

Jessie Cave looks the picture of Lavender Brown as I imagine her from the books.

Evanna really looks beautiful and I always love her premiere outfits!

As for the Trio not being there, I think Dan didn’t go because he’s in New York?

Avatar Image says:

Best dressed imho: The Phelps brothers! Hah, I wonder if they switch places with their dates just to mess with them. Probably not, but I think that would be funny. :D

Avatar Image says:

Evanna is almost always seen with Bonnie,maybe that’s why the people labeling the images messed up

Everybody looks good,love Evanna’s dress

Avatar Image says:

HA! Getty fixed the captions, so they now say Jessie instead of Bonnie. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who emailed them, but I’m glad I could help get that straight. Of course, one picture just of Evanna says that it’s both Evanna and Bonnie, but it’s an improvement.

Avatar Image says:

These events are publicity events, and if Dan, Rupert’s or Emma’s publicist thought it would benefit them to show up, I’m certain they would. Not that they aren’t happy to be there, but they go for a reason. And I agree with the posts above, the Phelps twins, and all of them, look great!

Avatar Image says:

Well, while I certainly enjoy seeing pictures of the Potter actors, I just have to say – Aaron Eckhart is very good looking. And what’s the deal with Bob Geldof – why did he go and name his daughter Peaches like it’s the 1930s or something? I suppose someday she’ll have to introduce herself to Apple Martin.

Here’s the video from the premiere and you can see Bonnie around 7: 41 -7:49. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yC6ap896gv8

I LOVE EVANNA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! p.s. did you know she’s a vegetarian?

Avatar Image says:

people are so stupid it says thaton the carpet they call jessie cave bonnie xd.. why idk.. but tom felton looks hot

Avatar Image says:

people are so stupid it says thaton the carpet they call jessie cave bonnie xd.. why idk.. but tom felton looks hot & oldman maybe went to the american 1

Avatar Image says:

Dan, Rupert, and Emma definitely aren’t required to attend big premieres for other movies. Heck, if they really didn’t want to, they probably don’t have to go to the HP premieres.

That aside, I know Rupert is currently filming Cherrybomb in Belfast and I’m pretty sure Dan is filming Journey in South Africa OR rehearsing his butt off for the Broadway premiere of Equus this fall. Emma’s been rumored to be doing some stuff, too! These are some busy actors!

Avatar Image says:

Pretty much what Bella said.

It’s not a big deal. Rupert did go to the last Batman premiere. As long as representation is sent, it’s all good.

Avatar Image says:

This was an event for the secondary actors to go to. No need for the trio to go- they don’t need press. Sort of sad that the other actors hardly even drew up any interest from the press, outside of evanna. LOL. Bonnie couldn’t even get one photo. Not including the fan pic that really wasn’t flattering. Pretty funny yet sad. At least evanna and the Phelps looked great.

Avatar Image says:

Bonnie and Matt skipped the press photogs for whatever reason, that’s why there’s no photos of them. Evanna, Tom and the Phelps boys didn’t.

I can’t get over how tan the twins look LoL.

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, sure they did. I seen Matt being interviewed. Face it, nobody cares.

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, nobody cares. . . . That’s why there’s people screaming “Ginny!. . . Bonnie!” as Bonnie walks by in the background without stopping for the press photogs in a recent video that can be viewed at Bonniewrightonline. As stated above, proof that there are no ‘official’ pics because the actress chose to skip the press photogs.

Avatar Image says:

Wow, Evanna looks gorgeous! And her date is a cutie! ;)

Avatar Image says:

Maybel Bonnie had borrowed Harry’s invisability cloak…HAHA

Avatar Image says:

Matt was interviewed live to the crowd, which is not the same as where they take photos. I watched the video Amelia mentioned and you can tell they skipped the area that they take photos. Not their movie, so they could choose to do so.

Avatar Image says:

I’m thinking that the main trio didn’t attend in order to not overshadow any of the films main stars. I can easily see D Rad making fangirls squee more over him than one of the Dark Knight actors.

Avatar Image says:

i have to say Evanna lynch looks stunning good on you girl :):):):)

Avatar Image says:

epic lulz at how trashy Tom’s date looks. But Jessie is adorable. And I heart Evanna.

Avatar Image says:

It’s a shame that the other HP actors like Matt don’t get so much attention. Especially Matt as he’s turning into such a great looking guy ;) Evanna is so striking, plus always looks so good in her outfits, that she’s bound to get noticed at every event she turns up to.

I’m always surprised that the Phelps twins get recognised and photographed at all, because they look so different with their natural hair colour! Also, they are starting to look quite different from each other now, which is good actually. One thing that annoys me with the HP movies, as a twin myself, is the fact that the twins always look identically dressed. Me and my sister always consciously dressed different after about age 12.

Dan is in the UK apparently; he was spotted in the Lake District, England only a day or so ago and had his photo snapped with a fan and it appeared in the local newspaper there. It was definitely him and not a fake. But he’s probably having a well earned holiday before plunging into Equus.

Rupert must be busy filming in Belfast, I think filming is only scheduled for three weeks on Cherrybomb, so I guess he doesn’t have time to hop over for premieres.

Avatar Image says:

i agree… toms girlfriends does look a bittt trashy. and he looooks so cute. but goooo evanna. : )

Avatar Image says:

ps la verdad evanna se mira muy bien en la premier a pesar de que en su personaje se ve mas chica creeo que aqui se ve mas grande y se ve mucho mejor. saludos a todos desde mexico
