The Dark Lord ascends…There is some pretty cool news today delivered in the form of a Twitter update from actor Tom Felton: Ralph Fiennes is now back on set filming his memorable role as Lord Voldemort for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Tom wrotehad a great day at work! learning from the best, its an honour to work with Ralph Fiennes, he’s so professional and talented.” Hear hear!

Actor Chris Rankin also announced via his official Twitter that for his role of Percy Weasley they “start filming at the end of the month with what looks to be a week of night shoots…” UPDATE: Warwick Davis also announced via his Twitter he is back on set “Just spent the day at ‘Hogwarts’. Nice to be back after my summer break. Saw some friends including @TomFelton – great guy!” As we learned yesterday a table read of the script was held for Deathly Hallows, and as reported several times previously many many of the adult actors are due this month, among them Alan Rickman (Snape) and Jason Isaacs (Lucius) along with Helen McCrory (Narcissa) as well as the younger actors such as Devon Murray and more. Very exciting the next few months will be, stay tuned!

Oh well I guess I'll just add that to list of other great scenes that were cut so that they could give us scenes like Harry hitting on a waitress.Avatar ImageScottMan says: Oh that's right, I forgot Tom Felton would be working with Ralph Fiennes in the last movie(s). How exciting! I can't wait to see that, as well as Alan Rickman's scenes with Fiennes.
