Deathly Hallows Casting Updates: Aunt Muriel Cast, Mafald Hopkirk Recast and Clemence Confirmed!


Jun 26, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

As filming continues in England for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, there are a few bits of casting news to update on. First TLC has word that the part of Ministry of Magic worker Mafilda Hopkirk has been recast and will now be portrayed by actress Sophie Thompson (Nicholas Nickelby, A Room with a View), who is the sister of actress Emma Thompson (Prof Trelawney). Also the part of Ron’s Auntie Muriel will reportedly be played by longtime character actress Matyelok Gibbs, who was most recently seen in Miss Potter. Finally, as noted first by TLC reader Enrico regarding this article in Elle Magazine that states Clemence Poesy will reprise her role as Fleur Delacour in Deathly Hallows. While this was long expected, TLC can now independently confirm that indeed Clemence has been on set in prep for filming of scenes that will no doubt include the Weasley Wedding, interiors at Shell Cottage, the 7 Potters and more. Again, as with every one of the casting reports over the months, TLC believes these to be accurate but official confirmation will arrive only when WB issues a formal announcement. The long summer of filming on DH continues, with Part one of Harry Potter and the Deathly due in theaters November, 2010.

I have hope in the Wedding being like the origanal now! This movie is going to be amazing! Great news!Avatar ImageEnricoDc says: Yippeeee!!! =) Avatar ImageGraymayne says: Matyelock Gibbs played the silent chaperone in _Miss Potter_, so this will be quite a contrast. I am confident that the casting is good. Sophie Thompson was excellent in _Gosford Park_. I'm delighted to hear that Clemence Poesy will be back to play Fleur. Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: They seem to be putting as much of the books into the films, which makes me happy :)Avatar ImageJohnB says: Don't know anything about the others, so I just hope they are good,but I a glad that Clemence is back.Avatar ImageDanielaNC says: Yes, they did it! They brought Clemence back! Finally, WB is doing things the right way. I wonder how they're going to introduce Bill and Fleur's relationship with him, though. Avatar ImageHP_Flower says: I'm so happy Clemence is back!Avatar Imagespicefan1978 says: YIPPEEE!!!!! Clemence is back! I'm so excited!!!!Avatar Image3 Weasly Twin says: Yay! I thought that Clemence wouldn't be in the movie, but now we know that she is!! It's really cool that they are really going all out for the last 2 movies. I'm so excited!Avatar Imagekamidee says: Yay! The wedding is in! XD But will it still be @ the Burrow? considering events from HBP movie?Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: very good news all around! :)Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Yay! Glad to hear Clemence is back :)Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Glad the same actress will play Fleur again... it would be odd with a new actress in her role. Very good news on everything! :)Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Yay! Fleur is back. So they're definitely doing Bill and Fleur's wedding. Even though the people who haven't read the books will have no idea who Bill is. Oh, well. Avatar ImageLemonFaerie says: Whoohooo, Phlegm, I mean Fleur, is in!!! I am getting so excited for DH that it is overshadowing HBP. Based on casting alone it seems like they are far more invested in finally doing DH right than they have been for the other movies since the first two. I cannot wait! Does anyone else find it interesting that Emma Thompson's sister is going to have a role but she herself won't come back to finish her own? I am so, so disappointed in Trelawney. But still very excited about the movie.Avatar Imagebookmonster79 says: Ok, we have Fleur and Auntie Muriel and even Malfalda Hopkirk, but has anyone confirmed the Dursley's yet???? Avatar Imageophelia1141 says: So does this mean we get to have Bill too? As others have wondered, is a red-haired man going to face the camera and say "I'm Bill, the oldest Weasley brother."? The lack of continuity from film to film is a bit frustrating.Avatar Imagetubaturtle says: I wonder if they'll bring back the guy who played Viktor Krum....Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: I cant wait to see Cleence in the movieAvatar ImageLloyd says: Some interesting picks... We will see how they turn out.Avatar Imagemystifiedbymuggles says: yay clemence woopwoop she will be brilliant! Avatar ImageTommy K says: yeah im so glad Clemence is back! i hope Emma Thompson will be back as Trelawney too...i hope :)Avatar Imagebella vita says: I'm so excited that Clemence is back! I just want to run around the room screaming like an idiot, THAT'S how excited I am. I love Clemence and that is the casting I've been the most on edge over while waiting for some confirmation. I'm so glad she's back. GOF didn't do her any justice at all so I'm really looking forward to seeing her get more screen time in DH. I also hope that this time they will find a better way to showcase her beauty as Fleur and show everyone why she was cast to play someone who is part-veela. I'm just down right giddy now! I'm so ready for DH!Avatar ImageHPHealer says: Yay for Bill and Fleur!!Avatar ImageMinihippogriff says: OMG! *squee* This is so exciting..!!!!!Avatar Imagegoodenough says: Squee!

Avatar Imagejords says: I am so happy to read that Fleur will be back for DH. I love her character, having officially fallen when she told the Weasley family at large she was "good looking enough for them both!" after Bill was attacked. She is much more like Molly than either woman acknowledges! Avatar ImageDolemite says: Yea the same FleurAvatar Imagesimos says: How are they going to reintroduce all what they have cut out about bill and flour I don't know.
