Actor David Thewlis (Remus Lupin) sat down with TV station KTLA in Los Angeles, California to discuss his upcoming film "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" and spoke briefly about the Harry Potter films.  While not much new information was given in the interview, video of which can be viewed right here, Mr. Thewlis does discuss the reasons for "Half-Blood Prince" being pushed back to next summer, the atmosphere around the Harry Potter set, dealing with wands, and the upcoming "Deathly Hallows" filming.  The interview continues with the actor speaking about "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" and previewing a clip from that film.

Many thanks to TLC reader Abby.

I’m a bit miffed, another movie I want to see is shown in limited areas. It’s not in my neighborhood. :(

But I do enjoy hearing what the Adult Potter actors are doing in-between films.

When he started talking about the werewolf thing and the woman said “we have a clip” I thought she meant of the HBP film!
But The Boy in the Striped Pajamas looks fab

Great actor for one of my favorite characters !
I hope that, contrary to the book, they’ll show his death scene in the last movie and Tonks too, it could be so dramatic.

Yay TLC! It was posted! I captured it for you guys so I’m glad it wasn’t lost. It’s so funny when he was talking about having coffee with Dumbledore and Snape. BTW, KTLA is a channel associated with WB so it was great he was completely honest about the reasons of HBP being push back. I’m sure he was a bit frustrated with it as well.

I think it’s cool to hear what the actor’s do with themselves between HP films too! What I don’t understand is why so many people who like hearing about any other movie/project that actors are doing is great…except for Twilight. Honestly, it’s just another project as well! We got a lot of news about Rupert and Emma’s stuff and Equus, Mamma Mia…need I say more…just without the anger and defensiveness that HP fans are throwing around when it comes to Twilight! Why can’t there be another series of books that people will enjoy? Nothing will ever compare to HP of course, but the world must continue to evolve…

scary interviewers??
was annoying me when they started talking over the end of his answers >:( :L
but david rocks! hes an awesome actor!!!

While his reason for the movie being pushed back sounds like something a big business would do, I still think the reason is because WB didn’t want their star appearing naked on broadway at the release of the HBP.

I’d be a lot older than most of you. I just wanted to say how David Thewlis evoked the spririt of great British actors of the past in the Prisoner of Azkaban, I’m pretty sure it was intentional. I suppose it was what the director wanted, Got me drawn into the plot, though.

hehe, David even stays polite, the wands used by the actors are NOT of the nice quality Noble Collection sells, they are cheap rubber casts that break and loose skin all over the time.
Dan Radcliffe told in on of the intervieuws that Devon Murruy had the record of breaking them.

OMG! I love David Thewlis! Good interview, Boy in the Striped Pajamas looks great.

And I can’t wait to see HBP!:)
