Deathly Hallows Updates: Krum Returns, Doge is Cast and More


Jul 19, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

As production continues on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, we have a few updates today. First, as long expected, TLC can report that Stanislav Ianevski will return as Quidditch champ Viktor Krum. As noted over the past few weeks, the Weasley wedding is due to be filmed shortly, with the Bulgarian champ due to make an appearance at the event. Also word has reached TLC from his agents that long time UK television character actor David Ryall (photo here) has been cast as Original Order of the Phoenix member and long time friend of Albus Dumbledore, Elphias Doge. Readers will recall of course, Doge writes the piece on Dumbledore for the Daily Prophet, and leads a spirited defense of the late Headmaster in conversation with Auntie Muriel (Matyelock Gibbs) at the wedding.

Finally, as filming has resumed on Deathly Hallows (with interior Malfoy Manor scenes shot last week as we heard on BBC1, 7 Potters and Wedding scenes due in the next few weeks), location shoots are still taking place. Yesterday in Golder’s Green Park in London, England quick exterior filming took place, as noted by these high res photos of actress Emma Watson as Hermione Granger. Thanks JC for the pics!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part One will be released November, 2010, with DH Part Two released July, 2011.

Keeping us posted, as always! :) Avatar ImageMatea says: Krum is back! great!!!Avatar ImageLilleby says: Yes, Krum is back, that's great :DAvatar ImageAliyah95 says: How are they going to do the Wedding if there's absolutely NO mention of Bill at all in the series, and nothing about them getting married in Movie 6?! Are they going to explain it in the scene before the wedding?! I can't wait to see the 7 Potters scene! That will be so cool! Too bad Hedwig has to leave us...Avatar ImageLinnyish says: When I was in Bulgaria I kept my eyes open for Viktor and I saw someone who looked just like my imagined version of him! I think he my have been slightly unnerved by my staring. Ohh well haha.Avatar ImageMugglejeff says: Should be really good to see the Wedding. Avatar ImageRavenclaw65 says: Wow. That is exactly how I pictured Elphias Doge to look like. Can't wait to see the wedding! And I am soooooo happy that they are keeping the 7 Potters. I was afraid that was going to be cut!Avatar ImageEnricoDc says: Great! great! great!!! :) Avatar ImageharrietPotter says: there was a time when i'd feared they wouldn't include the wedding! it's crucial!Avatar Imagepipkin3 says: Oh, Grandad from Outnumbered is Doge! Yay!Avatar Imageshellscotie says: Great news! We need Stanislav Ianevski back, he plays important part about the wandmakers! "7 Potters and Wedding scenes" They gonna shot those on location? Outside the studio?Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: YEAH!!! I hoped they'd bring krum back! I thought they might cut his bit..but yay!! Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: awesum!!!!! i do luv a bit of ron/hermione action :PAvatar Imagefngw417 says: Love to hear the updates, the day after experiencing HBP, it is all good. Avatar Imageskafkas says: Has WB confirmed that the Dursley's are in the movie? I know they are doing the 7 potters, but are they going to do the Dudley goodbye?Avatar Imageget1nexttime says: I can't wait 2 see Krum! :0)Avatar ImageRiverwings says: Wow, Krum returning means details, they are really trying to put in some details :)Avatar ImagePallargast says: I wasn't expecting Krum to return, although it looks like they're trying to keep just about every character from the book in the last 2 films.Avatar ImageLooie says: Yes! Can't wait for the Weasley wedding! Although I can't wait for the whole movie! :DAvatar Imagemynameisbrock says: haha i hope the part about krum trying to like hit on all the girls at the wedding is in there. he says something like what is the point of being an international quidditch player if all the good girls are taken after harry (diguised as barny) tells him hermione and ginny are both dating someone haha. but great pics and i hate to break it to you all but emma wants me XDAvatar ImageAvanelleWood says: Glad to hear that we will be seeing Krum again. I wonder what the chances are of seeing Sean Biggerstaff return as Oliver Wood at the Battle of Hogwarts? *sigh* slim to none, I am sure. But a girl can hope,can't she?Avatar ImageWicked_Lady says: @Aliyah95 I think that's exactly what they're going to end up doing. Give an explanation before the wedding. I mean Bill has been mentioned in the films before, so they could just say they met at Gringotts or something. I can't wait to see the 7 potters! I'm really happy that Krum is going to be in the film as well!!! I wonder what scene Emma was filming, she looks really worried/sad.Avatar ImageLilleby says: AvanelleWood: Well, David Yates said he wanted every character to return in the final two films - so it is somehow likely he's returning(:Avatar ImageLilleby says: Maybe the pictures is after Hermione have cursed her parents or something - I mean, they casted Michelle Fairley as Mrs Granger, right..? :bAvatar ImageWingardium Leviosa says: Yay for updates!Avatar ImageGret says: Yay! The wedding!! :DAvatar ImageScottMan says: Oh dear god, that is amazing. O_O I honestly didn't expect this. It would have been so easily cut, and I don't think it's necessary at all to have him, but more than anything I think this is their way of saying that they're committed to this finale and are going to do it right. I got goosebumps now!Avatar ImageAmy Darlene says: This is FANTASTIC!!!! I was hoping they would have this scene... not only for the line about not getting a Weasley girl (aww shucks...but there is only one...and she's meant for the chosen one) but also the intense scene about the Deathly Hallows symbol.... Wowzers!!! Avatar Imagegreenfire says: "Vot is the point of being and International Quidditch player if all of the good looking ones are taken." If he is coming back that line better be there.Avatar Imagebiswajit says: GreatAvatar ImageHermione_Granger1987 says: I am glad we will be seeing Krum again!! I see they are trying to keep as much as possible from the book and that makes me very happy!! I wander what scene is that with Hermione.. It could be after Ron lives.Avatar Imagegeneliz says: yayyy! i love it! also- excited to see those 7 Potters stills!Avatar Imageccking says: i'm so excited that we're getting so much info and that they're moving along happily on DH but it's starting to hit home that this really is the beginning of the end ... i remember when PS/SS came into theatres, all the excitement because there was absolutely no end in sight : (Avatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: cool beans, even though Victor had about two lines in GOF, he looks just like I pictured him. I like the guy who plays Doge, he looks like what I saw in the books, Idk about Aunt Muriel cause I can't see a picture of her, but they should be good, I'm glad they're keeping that part in the books. Avatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: cool beans, even though Victor had about two lines in GOF, he looks just like I pictured him. I like the guy who plays Doge, he looks like what I saw in the books, Idk about Aunt Muriel cause I can't see a picture of her, but they should be good, I'm glad they're keeping that part in the books. Avatar Imagesweeneygreen says: can't wait to see krum.......... and the movies too. :PAvatar ImagePhylis says: Getting more and more excited about the final two movies. I am a little curious about where the wedding will take place because The Burrow was destroyed in HBP. In the book, wasn't it at the Burrow?Avatar ImageWeasleyBoy says: It seems like everyone is comming back except Emma Thompson, let's hope she soon change her mind !!!Avatar ImageWolfyWizard says: This is epic news! It's great that they have the same actor come back for Kum, I get so excited for DH news!!Avatar ImageLulaL says: I am still hoping Bob Hoskins makes it into the movies. I thought he would be a great Slughorn. Broadbent was great, too, but there's only one Hoskins.Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: Im glad Krums back and theyve got Doge. I love hearing casting news.Avatar Imagebudb says: So, that leaves Jamie W as the only one that is uncertain (due to his 'trouble'). The six children --Albus, Lily and James Potter; Rose and Hugo Weasley; Scorpius Malfoy --still need to be announced. Nightsky, Charlie was mentioned in the SS and GoF films, but Bill has never been mentioned to the best of my memory Lulu, I saw Bob Hoskins as Marvolo Gaunt, but, well.... and back when my opinion of him was higher, I rather thought of Tony Blair as the Muggle Prime Minister ;-) both cut, alas!Avatar ImageWeasleyBoy says: I don't remenber if Charlie comes to the wedding in the book ? At least it would be great to finally put a face on the name in the movie ! They can present him and Bill at the wedding.Avatar ImageWeasleyBoy says: It would be also fun to place Lockhart somewhere in the movie, like a small cameo I don't know where ? maybe wandering madly in Diagon Alley !Avatar Imagestarkitty313 says: I'm glad they're bringing Krum back and that Doge will be there!Avatar Imageplacebowiz says: coolAvatar ImageHPNAIV says: Oh good good :) I'm glad to hear Krum's in. It seems like Yates is trying to bring everyone back! Good thing too.Avatar Imagemoglet says: @weasley boy; Charlie was Bill's best man in the book, but there has been absolutely no rumour of casting him, so I don't hold out too much hope there. This news about Krum and the casting of Doge is great though.Avatar ImageDelilah Snape says: It's all great that there is going to Krum and and everyone but I mean it so sucks that in the movies Bill is no where to be found or mentioned and with that ,they burned down the Burrow in HBP I mean wtf I just hope they do the DH much much much better.Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: It's good to know Stanislav Ianevski is returning ... the wedding scene should be really great to see :) I didnt really have a clear picture of how I imagined Elphias Doge to look. So, it's interesting to see how the movie people imagine him. I checked out the pic of David Ryall because I dont know who he is and, he looks as though he'll make a good Doge. It's cool that DH Part 1 is going to be released only just over a year after HBP *yay* Avatar Imagebookishgal says: Thanks for keeping us updated.Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Yay! Good, good! :DAvatar ImageBwaySaint says: I think this is great news - and I sincerely hope, since Elphias and Auntie Muriel (not to mention Bill/Fleur) have significant scenes in DH, that they just aren't in the background. I just remember reading articles on here (remember when they cast Sanguini and he was a "blink and you miss him" extra in HBP) getting excited and then seeing it slightly different. HOWEVER, it seems like DH is approaching things a LOT differently than the other films. For this, I remain cautiously optimistic! :) Avatar ImageRHrSoulmates says: I'm definitely excited about this! Can't wait to see the Krum-Hermione-Ron interaction and Ron whisking Hermione off to the dance floor! @Aliyah95 Would I have loved it if Bill had been in GoF and HBP? Sure, but there's no reason why Bill and Fleur's impending nuptials can't be mentioned at the start of the film. It's done in "normal", one-shot films so it can be done here too. I also don't know why everyone is so worried about the Burrow being burned down. The Wesleys ARE wizards you know. A *swish* here and *flick* there and voilà, a brand new Burrow! ;)Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I love a bit of Ron/Hermione action too. Will be pretty funny seeing Ron get all miffed about him again, the movie audience would lap it up. I love the way they are trying to cast everyone back from the 7 movies What the hell are those Emma pictures from. Hermione walking through a park on her own upset? Maybe she's just sent her parents off to Australia or the likeAvatar ImageGraymayne says: Elphias Doge is in very capable hands, David Ryall as a supporting actor is very familiar face.Avatar Imagesianletley says: I want 2 kno where the filmin is takin place so I can go seeAvatar Imageaval says: yay krum!Avatar ImageRinny says: i was about to post something mentioning how the one sad thing about november is that i have classes and clinicals and can't go at midnight, and then i realized that i'll be done with school and working by then!! woah! i can just try to schedule myself to not work the next morning- yay!! excited that so many people are coming back- hopefully it will be awesome!Avatar ImagePigwidgeonPwns says: How are they going to fit in the Bill/Fleur wedding if there was not mention of it in the previous movies? But, on the bright side, that's great news that Krum is back!Avatar Imagepeaceforall says: i wonder if they'll change the wedding from bill/fleur to tonks/lupin?Avatar ImagePewterWolf says: why is it that reading this news article makes me very happy? Cool pics... I wonder what's Emma was filming?Avatar Imagegreyy says: Can't wait till Deathly! Even tho we just got Half Blood, LOL!Avatar ImageKimberlyZ says: KRUM!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagehorsepatronus64 says: wow! they're bringing krum back? NO WAY! They aren't cutting anyone, it's so cool!Avatar ImageJillxoxo says: Am so glad to hear that they are shooting the Wedding and the 7 Potters, but am wondering about the final goodbye to the Dursleys? I don't see Shaw or Griffiths mentioned on imdb's listing for DH1. Of course, they don't even have Ralph Fiennes listed yet!Avatar Imagehorsepatronus64 says: I think they were filming the scene where hermione erases her parents memories. I know it wasn't in the book, but they casted hermione's mother, so doesn't that mean they are putting it in the movie? It makes sense because it looks like a very residential area, hermione looks upset, and it's just her. It can't be when they are camping, because they were camping in forests, and besides... why would you camp in ballet flats?Avatar ImagePaperback Writer says: Yes! Yes! Yes! Krum's back!!!!! I didn't even have my hopes up for that! I loved his return during the wedding. I can't wait... Avatar ImageLilleby says: horsepatronus64: Like I said previosly - I also think it's that scene(:Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: ❤@MischiefManaged★ROAR★ Why does is need to previously have been mentioned in order to happen?Avatar ImageTheWanderer244155 says: OMG sweet! the wedding scene's gonna be great!Avatar ImageTheWanderer244155 says: Krum is awesomeAvatar ImageTheWanderer244155 says: Will he fight Xenophelia's does anyone know?Avatar Imagegot2lovme says: I kinda assumed they were leaving that scene out, but i guess they added it. I wonder how their going to explain how they fell in love.Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: KRUM!!Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: cool! hopefully this is for 1) wand/dh sign plot stuff and 2) r/h dancing!Avatar ImageLemonFaerie says: WHOOHOOOO, Krum is back! I'm so excited about that and hearing him deliver the best line ever, LOL.Avatar ImageMarcusHBP says: thank goodness for krum, doge looks good, not totally diff from what i imagined.Avatar ImageVerity Weasley says: After seeing HBP, I was afraid the wedding wouldn't make it. With no Bill and Fleur in HBP, I'm not sure how they're going to set it up.Avatar ImageDanielaNC says: Yes! Great news! I can't wait to see his interaction with Ron and Hermione!Avatar ImageTonks1 says: What I want to know is how can you have a wedding in a house that you burnt down in the previous movie? If Harry could not repair his broom in POA, How are they going to repair (build) a new house in time? This is why I strongly (would like to use much stronger language here) dislike when they change things around in the movies.Avatar ImageJillxoxo says: To Tonks10oM4 - I'm thinking that a broken broom would be like a broken wand. It might still do things after you repaired it, just not the way it used to. As for the house, it is possible that they could remedy the structure quickly enough. Then, they would just have to worry about replacing the more magical elements. Just guessing. :) Avatar Imagecghambright says: YES!!!! I'm so excited!!! I think the Hermione shots are for when she modifies her parents memories because it doesn't make sense for her to be alone. AND the cast an actress to play her mother! So AWESOME!! :DAvatar Imagecghambright says: @Tonks1OoM4,CW[ROAR]: They can rebuild a house with magic as demonstrated by Dumbledore in the beginning of a family. A house isn't a magical object like a broom or a wand and I'm sure the Weasleys would have ALOT of help. Everything would be back to new in no time. Avatar Imagedanaskeeter says: I agree with Ravenclaw65...I was afraid that they would cut the 7 Potters scene, but I am glad to hear it's in! What part of the book has Hermione walking along by herself like that? Is that when she sneaks out of Grimmauld Place to spy on the Ministry entrance?Avatar Imagedanaskeeter says: Oh, I just read the comment above...maybe that is when Hermione modifies her parents' memories. I didn't know they had cast an actress for her mom. Also, in agreement with Tonks1OoM4, I HATE that they burned the Burrow!!! It was a cool scene, but so totally away from the book.Avatar ImageRemusRox says: HBP was good, but I am WAY more excited about the last two movies. I can't wait for the photos to start pouring in. Especially can't wait to see Bill Nighy!Avatar ImageJadeDanielle says: How exciting! It'll be great to see Krum again! Woooo :DAvatar Imagenarglecorks says: jesus christ, her hair is so freaking blond in the last photo!Avatar Imagebeewell says: Great that he is coming back to play Krum. Glad they are filming the wedding but I am apprehensive about how they are going to mention Bill since they haven't already. And how about the Burrow..where they are supppose to have the wedding. It burns in HP6 so hopefully they will repair it with Magic! Thanks Leaky for all of the updates. You guys are the greatest!Avatar ImageDarcyS says: I'm really excited about this, but I was irritated when Fleur and Bill weren't in HBP! How are they going to introduce this...."Hey, harry, thanks for coming to the wedding of my brother and the girl in movie 4 that we haven't seen since then!!!" I mean, come on! Avatar Imagecghambright says: Where did Leaky get this information? I hope it's not just a rumor because none of the other sites have reported it. Avatar Imagecghambright says: @Aimee: I think they can make it work. It can be a surprise. I think the wedding would be sweeter if we had seen the Bill/Fleur relationship develop like we did in the books, but I still think it will work out fine. Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Great news! :)Avatar Imagepolyjusposhun says: Wonderful news! : ) Now, what about Oliver Wood? pls,pls,pls oh pls.Avatar Imagegraceh1711 says: Is that the magical little purse that Emma is carrying?Avatar ImageDlcohm7 says: yes! it's the beaded purse she carries. woo hoo! i wonder if this is the scene where she is mad at ron and leaves. doesn't she leave the tent? it's not ron is it. have to read it again tomorrow.they have to put everything explain it all too.oh im getting nervous about the! i don't want it to end. what will we do guys? :(Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Yay for Krum!!! I can't wait to see the wedding scene!Avatar Imagedumbledore592 says: I'm so excited!Avatar Imagechanman says: It seems so far away...Avatar Imagechanman says: And yeah once it ends, it's going to stink!Avatar Imagelupinwandcaster says: Yay they're actually following the storyline!Avatar ImageAmy Darlene says: awww that would be excellent Oliver Wood... he dosen't even have to fight.. just show up in the room of requirement and clap harry on the back or something and say something along the lines of "we're a team" or perhaps thats too corney...but something along those linesAvatar ImageDraco_Fan says: Can't wait to see Malfoy ManorAvatar ImageThe Azkaban Dietitian says: Good news! I'm glad they kept Doge and Muriel. Avatar ImageTheknittingnerd says: I see the purple beaded bag!Avatar Imagedeadtree says: I can't wait for the wedding, though they're going to have to do a lot of backtracking to fill in the story. Avatar Imagelau399 says: I'm sooo happy for this. Krum is important in the seven book. Because of the Hallows sign!!!!Avatar ImageHarryfan299 says: lol I love the pics at green park and I soooooo can't wait until the 7 potter's scene it'll be greatAvatar Imagehermione97 says: They've chosen a good actor to play the role as Elphias Doge.Avatar Imagehermione97 says: Why is Emma looking so upset in the pics? Is there a scene like that, or what?Avatar ImageLilleby says: I expect both Sean Biggerstaff and John Cleese are gonna return since David Yates has said he wanted anyone to return in the last two films :DAvatar ImageKimberlyZ says: waiting for the big finish Avatar ImagePrisoner Of Azkaban says: You can see Hermiones bag in them pictures :DAvatar Imagejustanargle says: excited for the wedding!! infact excited for all of the deathly hallows :D Avatar ImageAwakened says: I've been wondering if Krum would be back. And the wedding IS on. That's good news!Avatar ImageFigment says: I'm glad they are putting the wedding in the movie, I just wish they would have mentioned Bill and Fleur in the HPB movie to give it some flow.Avatar Imagebengtson_98 says: Very Good.. Excellent Pictures!Avatar ImageFlora Lovegood says: yum...krum :) I am so glad they are doing the wedding scene! I was worried about that when they destroyed teh Burrow...I love group scenes when we see lots of great characters together :)Avatar ImagepigmypuffSMC says: my question is... who's wedding will it be? Bill and Fleur weren't in HBP so my speculation is they will make it Tonks and Lupin's wedding instead. Any opinions?Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Good newz & nice pix...Avatar ImageTamyris says: Great! Krum is back. I hope they keep the scene where Krum gets interested in Ginny and Harry gets jeaulous.Avatar Imageiamminerva says: Stan's back...excellent, but just where will the wedding take place? They burned down the Burrow in HBP. Will the wedding be there anyway? If so, what will the explanation be about why the Burrow is now okay? I was watching HBP and thinking to myself, why are they all just standing there? Get your wands out and put out this fire! :) With all the news that there is right now, I'm having trouble keeping up, so perhaps there was a story with the explanation in it and I just missed it. Avatar Imagelily-evans22 says: I really can't wait!Avatar ImageMosu says: O YEAH KRUM! IM SOO LOOKING FORWARD TO THESE LAST 2 MOVIES BUT ITS SOO SAD ITS ALL ENDING :( i want to cry :( POOR HERMIONE, I FEEL SO BAD FOR HER :(Avatar Imageashes2phoenix says: sweet :DAvatar ImageHGROSS44 says: Krum Krum it will be nice to see him againAvatar ImageSnapesSilverDoe says: I am so pleased they seem to be getting a lot of the minor characters to appear in this last installmentAvatar Imagescurvy cur says: thank god they're doing the wedding, I think i'd die if they didn't.Avatar ImageHPfan221 says: So excited 4 the movie!!!!! And they will probably put in the more stuff because it's going to be 2 movies, so they will really be able to tell the storyAvatar Imagealegria35 says: nice to see the pics of the actors that are going to play some of the parts in DH... i can easily visualize them when I read/listen to the books once again.. thanks tlcAvatar Imagealegria35 says: and yay, they are doing Bill & Fleur's wedding... awesome!Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: yay, i wasn't sure that krum would make the final cut of the movie, but i'm glad that he did. i guess we'll get to see jealous ron at the wedding! YAYAvatar ImageTom riddles girl says: Yay!!!!!!!!!!! krum is cast now the fiming can begin!!!Avatar Imagejediofthelost says: Finally they will bring all the minor characters from all the first six movies into one movie.Avatar Imagesmgkkg says: can't wait to see the Weasley wedding!Avatar Imagejacket says: Horay! I was worried that they would cut the wedding scene because they didn't mention it in HBP I am totally looking forward to seeing Fleur and Krum again!Avatar ImagecrazyforSeverus says: I'm so glad they're keeping Krum, Doge, and Muriel. I was afraid some of the minor characters might get cut. I'm also thrilled to see part 1 is coming out Nov 2010 and part 2 july 2011. We won't have to wait long between movies!!!! Avatar ImageSindi says: wow! it sounds like its going great! Avatar ImageSindi says: i cant wait!! :D
