Actor Timothy Spall has given a new interview where he confirms he will be returning in the role of Peter Pettigrew for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince film. The actor says that he is in the sixth Harry Potter movie, noting he should begin filming his role as Wormtail in the near future noting “They’re shooting the penultimate one at the moment ’ which I have a brief appearance in it. I should be doing that soon.”

Timothy Spall then goes on to state in the brief interview with Moviehole that he will be back for the film version of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” but is uncertain on the production schedule for that movie. He says ”And I’m also in the one at the end ’ I have a very big scene in that. I think they might be shooting two of them back-to-back ’ hard to know though, what with this writer’s strike and all.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is currently in production in England, and will be released in theaters this year on November 21.
