The always engaging Bill Nighy has given a new interview where he joked about the measures surrounding the script for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In humorous remarks, Bill Nighy, who will be portraying Ministry of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour said “that he had to shred his scripts to be on the safe side. “They kill you, if you leave your script lying around or leave it on the bus, you’re dead,” he said, laughing.”You
have to sign a confidentiality (agreement) and stuff like that which is
perfectly understandable. So if I tell you any more, they’ll come round
my house.”

As previously reported here on Leaky, Bill Nighy has already filmed scenes for Deathly Hallows, and remarked on his co-stars including actor Dan Radcliffe (Harry): “It was very sweet, very nice to work with him, and with Emma and
Rupert, and with David Yates as this is my fourth time working with
him,” he added at the Los Angeles premiere of his latest film, Astro
Boy. “It’s great. I thought I was going to be the only British
actor of a certain age not to be in Harry Potter and it turned out not
to be true so it’s kind of cool.”

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows continues production in England, with Part One due in theaters next year on November 19, 2010.
