Aug 03, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

Minor casting news today as UK Casting Call Pro has been updated with several actors who have been cast as extras or ‘featured’ extras in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Listed are:

Elliott Francis: “Featured Slug Club Member”
Grace Francis: “Gryffindor Club Member”
Aaron Virdee: “Senior, Gryffindor”
Louisa Warren: “Senior, Hufflepuff”
Rayman Jilani: “Background Artiste”
Annette Elstob: “Young Woman”

Also thanks to reader James for letting us know as reported in the Times, Mary Epworth of UK band Mary Epworth and the Jubilee Band has been cast as an extra in the film, with the article specifically noting it was the singer/actress cast (not the band)
“Epworth has appeared in Gavin and Stacey ” “It was very much a case of
˜Don’t talk to the talent!’” ” and is poised to loiter in the background of
the next Harry Potter movie.”

Thanks for the UKProCall link, UHP!

Hope they relish the chance to be in the final batch of Potterness.Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: thats cool. some of it makes no sense because the slug club is not in DH.Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: thats cool. some of it makes no sense because the slug club is not in DH.Avatar ImageTeatopatronusesla says: there's a competition in my country that if you order tickets for HBP online and send in a form you might appear in one of the paintings but yo ustill get to tour the set! and i booked tickets ages ago but i FORGOT to fill in the form, so now i hvae to buy more tickets online which is more expensive! arggggggh! i'd die if i won the competition xDDAvatar Imagewandmastercalum says: The slug club will probably be involved as Slughorn brings in a group of people. Marcus Belby would have been there but you know.... *sigh* I've always wanted to be in HP movie. :'( Avatar ImageRory says: Grats to all of them!, i'm not going to lie i'm a bit jealous :PAvatar ImageRemus Greyback says: I was extra in half blood prince..At the three broomsticks scene.Avatar Imagewing says: This is a good news, I expect.Avatar Imagegoodenough says: Cool! Yeah for the senior Hufflepuff! Always way to few of us in the films.Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: Cool!!Avatar ImageDiamondWings says: really cool!Avatar ImageLexitheAuror says: It's cool that they're adding a Hufflepuff. In the movies, most of the students are usually Sytherin or Gryffindor. Speaking of Houses, why is the main page still green? Ravenclaw won the last House Cup.Avatar Imageweasleymyking says: Hmmm.. in the 7th book there isnt much mention of the Slug Club so are they maybe bringing in parts they missed from the 6th? Because if so there is a lot to add, and not just the slug clubAvatar ImageHPNAIV says: Cool... but a Slug Club member? Well, it doesn't really matter to me as long as they don't put a whole scene with the Slug Club again.Avatar Imageminishiva says: Wish I could be an extra.Avatar ImageMkCorner says: Remus Greyback..... Really which one were you?Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: shoot, I thought the jubilee would have made a good wedding band. Avatar Imageimpoohnfrenz says: Thats so cool. If only I lived in the UK! I mightve been one too! LOLAvatar ImageeiVega says: Hmm...interesting. I wonder what it will mean...Avatar ImageTonks1 says: Good Luck to them. Hope they have a awsome time. Lucky, Lucky, LuckyAvatar ImageR-for-H says: Interesting!! LOLAvatar Imagenddulac says: Still hoping for the Pottercasters being cast to toss things at death eaters!Avatar Imagehermiones says: i wonder how you can become an extra in the deathly hallows?? anyone know how to that would be a real help :) Avatar ImageDobbyandWinky says: That's lovley Avatar Imagesunlitdays says: yeah ppl are wondering why they would have the slugclub...maybe in a picture or something? any ideas?Avatar ImageCzechmetz says: Woo, go Louisa Warren! HUFFLEPUFF!!Avatar ImageNochthikus says: Don't you have to live in the United Kingdom to be an extra?Avatar ImageDumbledore1996 says: seems like the new movies will have plenty extras!Avatar Imagegoodegogo says: I wish I could be an extra in the movie that would be like a dream come true!Avatar Imagebettb says: Agree with others that the Slug Club mention for DH in one actor's credits seems to be an error; just because the guy played a Slug Club member in HBP, they seem to think that would be his part in DH, too. But, no SC in DH, as we Potter geeks know! And I will repeat the question [John Noe?!] about why the main page isn't blue instead of green? Nice work last month, Ravenclaws!Avatar ImageBritski says: Oh, how I wish I was an extra. hahaAvatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: awesum :)Avatar ImagePigwidgeonPwns says: I would totally ruin the movie if I was an extra. xD I would walk by and stop and the camera and wave... LOLAvatar ImageAndreaB09 says: hmmm....never heard of any of them. and why do they need slug club members and a gryffindor club member? Whats that?Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: That would be so cool to be an extra in one of the Harry movies! :) Awesome!Avatar Imagetina_als_girl says: A majority of those are listed as being in DH Part 2, so they could still be Slug Club members... *shrugs* I think Elliott Francis is quite the hottie.... And, oh, I dunno... When I saw that pic of him with his arm across his chest... I just couldn't help but see this in my head: Eh, not the best work, but it'll do... Maybe I should upload it where I have my infamous Laura Rees as Tonks pic...Avatar Imagetayler18 says: oh sweet, they better make the 7th movie gooodd!Avatar ImageLuce_depp says: yeah i guess the slug club is the people sluggy brings back. I really hope they do the pansy parkison yell for everyone to get Harry and they all stand to protect him. That was a great bit.Avatar ImageFloridianFlounder95 says: I'm just an insy bit jealous. Just a tinsy winsy bitAvatar Imageharrypottergirlll says: Ariel Parrella Aureli- "Gryffindor extra" Avatar Imagemadman1277 says: Man, i wish i could be an extra in the battle... that would be AMAZINGAvatar ImageAlbus Marcos Dumbledore says: CoolAvatar ImageMrs.Brisby says: hmmm, interesting... I can't wait for the movies. :D Avatar ImageAvanelleWood says: It would be so cool if they brought Sean Biggerstaff back for a cameo as Oliver Wood.Avatar ImageFigment says: Cool, with 2 movies instead of just one they will be able to add more and hopefully make up for some of what they left out of HBP.Avatar ImageJadeDanielle says: I am getting so pumped for this is ridiculous...Avatar ImageHagrid 713 says: I'd be an extra for free!Avatar Imagealegria35 says: So excited for the movie...Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Cool .... I 'pose! I wish I could be an extra in the film! :) Avatar Imagecghambright says: Awesome! I bet Mary Epworth is playing at Bill and Fleur's wedding. I'm assuming all the others are extras for the battle. Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Very interesting...Avatar Imagehermionenluna TZS ROAR! says: id love to be an extraAvatar Imagejustanargle says: i want to be an extra!!! Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: that's cool, it's always good to have confirmations of castings and such! :)Avatar Imagegot2lovme says: that would be so cool to be an extraAvatar ImageBroomsnitch says: Oh how I desperately wish I could be a 'Featured Extra'!Avatar ImagePhylis says: It's exciting to hear about all the scoop on DH! This is going to be such a fantastic two movies!Avatar Image42sk8ter says: i wish i could be a background actor! Avatar Image42sk8ter says: i wish i could be a background actor! Avatar Imagebudb says: er, folks? I just went and check several cast lists....we get Charity Burbage, but none of the cast lists for DH1 have the three Dursleys! Seriously, go check yourselves. we all assumed the Dursleys will be there (I still do, actually), but has the casting of Melling, Griffiths and Shaw not been officially announced? I did find one online uncredited reference to a representative of Griffiths saying he would be back... i'm certain its a matter of timing and contracts and all that...just an oddity, that's all, that caught my eyeAvatar Imagegmf says: hi , sorry for any confusion . the profiles of elliott francis and grace francis are errors and we have both updated them. elliott was a slug club member in the last film not in the new one and a slytherin in the next and grace francis is just a griffindor in the final film. again sorry for confusion. :)Avatar ImageRose-Mclane says: Mary Epworth and the Jubilee Band has some awesome music. I have never heard of them (or her) before. Awesome. I'll be putting that on my MySpace.... I wonder who she will be and if she will be recognizable. Avatar ImageFresca says: Weaselymy king, you are absolutely right. I thought they should have included Dumbledore's funeral at the end to round off the Half Blood Prince movie better. Maybe the Slug club is just a short scene, but i sure hope they don't drop Fleur and Bill's wedding. That is wherr the Death Eaters should appear.Avatar Imagebudb says: Ok, in addition to my comment above re the Dursleys not being officially cast yet, I would also point out we dont yet know about Jamie W as the only one of the young actors (due to his ‘trouble’). Finally, imagine the fuss that will be made over the casting of the six children —Albus, Lily and James Potter; Rose and Hugo Weasley; Scorpius Malfoy —all of which still need to be announced as far as i can tellAvatar Imagemaimiaa says: well that's cool :]Avatar Imagevicky granger says: Slug Club in DH part 2 ? ... Hum... Wonder where that'll come in ...Avatar ImageTasyaWeasley says: cool :)Avatar ImageAudreyLouiseLovegood says: well this is rather neat!!! :DAvatar ImageBeAchL0veEr05 says: I don't want to look at the pictures because I don't want to judge. . . I'll just see it in the theatres.Avatar ImagecrazyforSeverus says: It seems like with the 7th movie they're adding new characters (though I'm not sure how big a role they will play). I wonder if the senior students will be in the battle at Hogwarts part.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Thats nice...
