Julie Walters Confirms Return as Molly Weasley for Both "Deathly Hallows" FilmsWalters
The Times newspaper has a new interview online with Julie Walters, where the actress confirms her return in the role of Molly Weasley for both films of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. While promoting her new film “Mamma Mia,” which premiered recently in London (new photos of this event here in our image galleries), Julie Walter says that “I’m in them loads!” says Walters, and her eyes narrow. Then she does a new accent, which is basically herself, but evil. “I think I have to kill Helena Bonham Carter,” she says. Then she cackles again, like your favourite witchy aunt.
The article briefly mentions that Julie will of course be seen as Molly Weasley in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and notes that she speaks with affection of the trio, noting that one day Dan Radcliffe “she reckons, will probably end up directing.”
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released in theaters November 21, 2008, with production on both film versions of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows set to begin in February of 2009.
