Rumor Alert: Possible Location Shoots for Deathly Hallows Near Leavesden


Feb 24, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

With production now underway on the final installments in the Harry Potter film series, there is a curious casting rumor making the rounds today. This is Grimsby is reporting that UK actor Nick Moran apparently told people at a recent London fashion show party that he was cast in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows films. While no mention of a specific role was stated, the paper reads “Nick was overheard saying he is set to become the baddie in the next
two blockbuster Harry Potter films, but complaining filming takes place
on location in Watford.” You can see a photo of Nick Moran here.

Please note: While we are uncertain which “baddie” he supposedly will be playing, we should point out as well the mailing address of the main studio where the films are recorded, Leavesden Studios, is also that of Watford, England. Thus, we are also uncertain what location shoots the article might be referring to, and will update with more on that when we can. TLC is attempting to obtain confirmation on all of this; until then please keep this all very much in the rumor category for now.

Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Hm, maybe just a Death Eater?Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: There weren't many new characters in the 7th book. Very interesting.Avatar ImageFelipe_Q says: ...interesting... Let's hope to hear what character he'll be playing soon... I also can't wait to see more pictures of shooting locations like the ones of those houses, whatever they may be of! It's so weird to keep hearing about DH when HBP isn't even in theatres yet.. it's still SO long before it opens... But cool to hear movie news, nonetheless!Avatar Imagemoony_lupin says: I think he might be a good bet for Yaxley, the Death Eater who organised the overthrow of the Ministry. Avatar ImageRose-Mclane says: That's cool. He is pretty attractive too. I can wait for the pictures for this movie. let the hype for HBP slow down first or I'll be looking through, News,Interviews and pictures for months. Anyone In England heard of that Vampire movie? First time I ever have just now. Looks like crap. A Sean of the Dead Rip off :[Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: He may be a Carrow!Avatar ImageChantyBabez says: Ahhh cool! i hope we find out soon whether this is fact or rumour i dnt like not knowing :D xAvatar ImageProfessorPotter says: May possibly play one of the 2 Carrow brothers. Oh man, I cant wait for that BA moment when Prof McGonagall binds them up with an assured swift action. Avatar Imagejonfrog says: that cool. hope to hear what character he'll be playing? any death eaters that haven't been seen yet that are mentioned? Avatar Imagejonfrog says: omg how can i be so stupid! i completely forgot about the carrow brothers! i wonder who'll play the other if nick does play one of themAvatar ImageKent says: The Carrows were brother(Amycus) and sister(Alecto). Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Hmmm. Not many new characters in DH. Maybe a Death Eater, but wasn't Amycus Carrow already cast? Yaxley maybe. Avatar Imagelevi-OH-sa not levio-SA says: cool, i would love to be "overheard" bragging about a part on HP!Avatar ImageErinM says: Yaxley or Amycus? Good bet for either one! Both were definitely "baddies"!Avatar ImageKent says: Ralph Ineson is listed as playing Amycus Carrow in HBP and Johnpaul Castrianni is listed as playing Yaxley. Information from the Internet Movie Data Base. Avatar ImageMoody One says: I really can't wait for this movie. So much to look forward too!Avatar ImageBookworm_Weasley says: That's odd. There's nothing on his IMDB page about being in Deathly Hallows...Avatar Imagekelseycrucio says: It's so strange how we keep getting all of this DH news when HBP is still months away. Oh well, can't wait!Avatar Imagemollywobble says: Yeah sounds like he was talking about Leavesden. Man I wish WB would let us know what's going on: who's been cast, who's coming back, etc. Avatar Imageznachki says: Perhaps there is a "Young Grindewald" flashback. I could see that.Avatar Imagescarletti1 says: oooh, that's quite a possibility znachki. He's make an excellent grindelwald, i think. Hopefully we'll find out soon!Avatar Imagerebel says: rumor rumorsAvatar Imagedehonestiss says: i think that maybe he is going to be playing yaxley or alecto carrow in the next movies.Avatar ImageChromate says: I'm thinking death eater, if anything.Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: I love me some DH casting news! :)Avatar Imagemollywobbles23 says: He could have just meant the studio and he'll have to move there temporarily for filming. *shrugs* It's on location for him, but not for the production in general.Avatar ImageNinnyTreetops says: Huh, young Grindelwald, I wonder? Granted, he doesn't have blonde locks or anything, but that's nothing a wig cannot fix...Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: hmm, what color is his hair? or, a better question, does he have any? cuz if he is even remotely blond, im going for yaxley. cuz the carrows are suppposed to be lumpy and ugly, so it might not exactly be a compliment if u cast as one of them :D Avatar Imagechoirgeek says: Hm... I thought most of the main Death Eaters were already cast? Maybe he's just an unamed, background DE that appears in more than one scene or something like that? That's interesting.Avatar ImageSirius_Craic says: I was thinking Grindelwald too. He would make a good Grindelwald as GG would have to be good looking. Enough to turn DD head for two months anyway. With those blue eyes also he would make a good blonde which is what GG was.Avatar ImageFelina says: I was thinking Runcorn? Sort of fits the picture in my head... assuming Runcorn's in the movie at all.Avatar Imagecantspellathing says: I was thinking Ted Tonks until he said baddie. I hate to say this but he is too good looking to be Amycus Carrow who is suppose to be a bit like the Hunchback of Notredame. Yaxley? What about Lovegood? He could kind of be called a baddie. Avatar ImageGinnywobbles says: hmmm... bet he's Grindelwald! I was going to say he's not old enough or ugly enough to be any 'baddie' I could think of, but yep, Grindelwald, absolutely! I'd say that face might tempt even the strongest over to the dark side!Avatar ImageGinnywobbles says: Good guess, *cantspellathing*, but a)too yummy... oops, I mean, young, and b)I hope Lovegood won't be played as a baddie, just a frightened, desperate father. I pictured Lovegood as something along the lines of Dustin Hoffman in Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, except maybe even "one brick short"-er.Avatar ImageT-Vey says: Hmmmm. How about the character with my absolute favorite name.. Pius?! I mean, he's not completely a baddie... but after he's imperiused by Yaxley, he's basically Voldemort's puppet and the key to taking control of the ministry! A very minor role... but it's still something, right?Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: It is great getting to hear about possible location shoots. Avatar Imagephantomdave79 says: Rumor news....Rumors can be good.....and bad. At this point, I'll take anything I can get though! lolAvatar Imageugurbocegi says: A Death Eater, I believe. I really want to know who is going to play Yaxley though. Avatar Imageangelac123 says: Exciting! I wonder who he'll be...Avatar Imageravenclawguy1972 says: hmmm maybe he will play Pius Thicknesse? Avatar Imagenoe_lover_42 says: Ooooh excitingAvatar ImageLuce_depp says: Thicknesse could be it I guess... I was thing maybe one of the guys who gets Harry, Ron and Hermione, withr at the start in the diner or in the tents with greyback? I can't remember who was in those scenes thought it's been a while...I doubt it's carrows coz i'm sure they'd already been cast.Avatar ImageLunaNyteskye says: Could he be one of the Snatchers maybe? Possibly one of the ones who try to catch Harry, Ron and Hermione at the cafe after the wedding was invaded? Avatar ImageAccioCloak says: Like the Grindelwald idea, but there's still a couple of death eater roles open!!Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: Cool - but if I could ever get anything to do with HP I wouldn't complain if it was being filmed on the moon!Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: Cool - but if I could have anything to do with HP I wouldn't complain if it was being filmed on the moon!!Avatar Imagefreetheelves says: I like the Grindelwald idea, too. That'd be quite cool.Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I cannot wait to receive more information; this certainly sounds interesting! Thank you for making such an effort to keep us informed as a fandom, Leaky! We all appreciate it immensely.Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Mmmmmmmm . . . . . interesting there wasn't very many new characters in DH. And people are saying characters like Amycus and Yaxley have been cast. Might not be true just have to wait and see. : 0 xxAvatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: might be Yaxley... or Bellatrixs husband?Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Hmmm... Interesting.Avatar Imagerhadamenthes says: Very interesting. Wouldn't it be hilarious if it turns out he's just an extra on the film and he was just bragging! LOLAvatar Imagebecmajec says: I like filming. I dislike Death EatersAvatar ImageArithmancer says: I'm with those guessing young Grindelwald. He's too delicate and handsome for a Death Eater.Avatar Imagecallicott3 says: I LOVE rumors! They are so much fun to watch unravel!Avatar Imageluna.quibbler says: cool...Avatar ImageIoli says: Well, it really seems like a Bill Weasley to me, not a baddieAvatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: I bet it's YaxleyAvatar Imagesanhjuthui says: I love to explore I recently came across your blog and have been reading along.
