I love Pottercast! First comment!Avatar ImageUndesirable No. 1 says: I TOTALLY want to play WoW with Mel & Frak now! I hope I see her sometime, though the chances are slim.Avatar Imagemouse68 says: About Emma and that 43 people scene, I think you will find that Emma is more than likely NOT there. Her deal was, and she has said this herself, that she got to go to uni and would come back in December and April to film any further scenes she was required for. Yes, she came back for the Burberry fashion show for one day because she is the face of Burberry and it was part of her contract. In a scene this big, where she probably isn't having a lot of face time, and the focus is most likely on Voldemort and Harry, from what has been said on Twitter, they will use her double, just as they used her double a lot in OOTP when she was studying for her final exams. They will have scheduled things in such a way that the battle scenes where they need her to have a lot of face time will be shot in December. This battle is being shot for three months, not a few days.Avatar Imageharrygetsme says: hopefully i can listen soon ;)Avatar ImageFifi says: Yay! : DAvatar ImageCatherine says: wow! so soon after the other one!! nice! i love these things they keep me sane during the school week!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Can’t wait to listen to it!

Avatar ImageYoungerGranger says: I love your show and i look forward to it every week, but seriously, leave Miley Cyrus alone. I'm not a huge fan of hers and I used to rag on her all the time until a friend of mine brought this to my attention. She's a teenager with a ton of attention. All of her songs have great messages and she's not exactly the most scandelous star out there.
