The July issue of Tatler Magazine contains a new interview with actress Jessie Cave and her role as Lavender Brown in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Thanks to Jessie you can see the interview here (photo here), and recounts her final audition for the part : For the final audition I was kitted out in Hogwarts uniform and
driven in a golf- buggy to the Gryffindor common room. I had to
improvise in front of a room full of people with Rupert and a paper
biscuit for half an hour.’
The article also notes she will be returning to the part in the final film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two. Readers will recall that Lavender fought with the DA during the Battle of Hogwarts, and fell from a balcony.

Love this kinda newsAvatar Imagecghambright says: Awesome! I wonder if the scene where Hermione saves Lavender from Greyback is in the DH movie?! That's the only scene I can remember with Lavender in it. But I love JESSIE! She's so lucky to go from being a huge fan to kissing Rupert Grint! I would faint if that happened to me. Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Thats cool!Avatar ImageBonnie Radcliffe says: I love her!! ^^ She's so nice and funny!! My favourite HP girl along with Bonnie =) I actually think she and Rupert would make a great couple XDAvatar ImageDanielaNC says: Really good news! Looks like WB is bringing everyone back for DH. I really hope they keep the scene where Hermione saves her, it's small, but it's the perfect closure for their characters. Avatar Imagelavender_07 says: Yay! Haha great interview! I love how honest she is!Avatar ImageLinnyish says: Jessie is amazing :DAvatar Imageliv-wa says: Oooo Fun!

HBP isnt out so i dont know if she makes a good lavender or a good actor or anything but she must be if she is invited back..Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: haha!!!! paper buscuit and having a crush on rupert. haha!! who wouldnt after months of kissing?Avatar ImageLucilla says: I wonder...are they going to show her getting bitten by Greyback?Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: How cute...Avatar Imageoldenoughtoknowbetter says: Well that's good news! Continuity, Im all about thatAvatar ImageExAstrisScientia says: She sounds pretty quirky! I like that. I think it's a bit awkward to say you have a crush on your coworker in a public interview, but I suppose she was half joking. Avatar Imagepotterrock says: jessie is a lucky lady xD......she looks pretty but......i hate her character x3.....Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: She looks perfect for the rule cant wait to see how she works with Rupert. One of the funnest senes in the book. Avatar Imageneeshaknowsall says: Oh, wow. This was interesting news. Nice to hear she's coming back for DH. Maybe they'll bring Colin Creevy...? Too bad the only time we see him is when he's dead... Maybe not. :\ Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: She didnt have a big part in DH but its good there bringing her back. I really hope they bring Wood back for DH part 2.Avatar ImageTamyris says: Who wouldn´t have a crush on Rupert? He is too sexy to be real! I don´t really remember Lavender on the last book and I absolutely think she is not necessary. They spent the entire series cutting important characters.why on earth they decided to call her back in DH when she is not even important? I haven´t heard about casting Fleur back , casting Abeforth and so on... Avatar Imagesimos says: Jessie makes a really cool Lavender.Avatar ImageCaracticus says: I think they could establish the 'tension' between Ron & Lavender in the RoR (before the final battle) with Lavender getting 'too close' to Won Won, and Hermione giving her a glare... but despite that, Hermione saves Lavender from Grayback... could be a good character moment for both of them.Avatar ImageJustSuperMione says: Hermione will have to save Lav... It's a sweet interview but dudes!!!! Seriously - Jess has a crush on Rupert!!! (Understandible but...) Emma will not be impressed - or will tease him a lot!Avatar Imagekingdom says: she seems to fit the character well. i still can't imagine anyone else with Ron though, it has to be Hermione.Avatar Imagekingdom says: she seems to fit the character well. i still can't imagine anyone else with Ron though, it has to be Hermione.Avatar Imagesaffran says: niceAvatar ImageDiamondWings says: Cool!!! =)Avatar ImagePotterFan-Man says: It's great that they're still casting her for the last movie. I hate it when they change the actors from one movie to the next..Avatar Imagepotter2005 says: Thats cool!! Also Mugglenet are reporting that Simon McBurney has been cast as Kreacher. I assume its just to provide the voice.Avatar Imagemegan_702 says: niceeee it says jessie cave has a crush on rupert...LOL....that would be cute if they went out...but I like hermione and ron better than lavender and ron!Avatar Imageravonja says: I like how they keep all the actors :) And from what I've seen I think she's a good Lavender :) but... crush on Rupert??! WTF?! :DAvatar ImageLovelySlytherinWitch19 says: Yay! I really like her as Lavender (;Avatar ImageNennaNanna says: Jessie Cave is awesome actress!Avatar Imagetayler18 says: Jessie is perfect for Lavendar!! I cant wait to see her in half- blood prince!Avatar ImageR-for-H says: Hm...
