Rumblings on Possible Casting for Bill Weasley for Deathly Hallows and More
March 07, 2009, 12:34 PM
We have some interesting rumblings today regarding possible castings for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Rumors have reached our ears that Domhnall Gleeson, the son of actor Brendan Gleeson (Mad-Eye Moody) will be portraying Bill Weasley in the final Harry Potter films. You can see a photo of Domhnall here. Domhnall Gleeson is an upcoming actor, known in the theater world having received a Tony nomination in 2006 for his work in The Lieutenant of Inishmore. Also word is that the role of Mundungus Fletcher has also been cast, but there is no actor's name available as of yet.
Please note: As fans will recall, we had heard from actress Clemence Poesy last year that her character of Fleur was not to be in Half-Blood Prince, but remained uncertain if she was to be back for Deathly Hallows. We do not know if the rumor of a possible casting of Bill Weasely indicates the wedding scene may be in or simply just Shell cottage, or what all of this may mean, thus, we do caution to please treat this very much as a rumor for now. As always, we are working to find out more on this, and will update with more when we can, stay tuned!
I think he’d make a very wonderful Bill :D
Hmmm…very interesting. I have to say that I really thought they would probably cut Bill from DH completely and either cut the wedding scene entirely or have it be Lupin and Tonks’s wedding, but it looks like I might be wrong. As much as I like it when they actually stick to the books, I’m not sure how I feel about being introduced to Bill (and re-introduced to Fleur?) since I had gotten so used to the idea of them not being in DH.
I have heard that scenes from Bill & Fleur’s wedding are in the pre-filming script, and will be shot. Which ones make the final cut nis of course another matter.
Very Bill to me
I’ll be interested to see how they manage to pull this off. How are they going to introduce him? This also makes me wonder if they are going to have the wedding scene and if Fleur will be back.
Looks good – I too hope they put that scene in
He looks good for the part of Bill :)
he looks the part, a little bit. better than the one they had before.
would be nice if Bill is included on Deathly Hallows
He looks perfect! I really hope they have a wedding scene and a great shell cottage scene too!
He’d be a good Bill. It’s good to know that he’s being cast, because my friend had a theory that they were going to cut the Bill/Fleur stuff completely and replace them with Remus and Tonks.
OH he’d make a great Bill! :D
He looks great for the part!
Wow! Spot on! He’s pretty handsome too :)
Okay give me a moment to celebrate:
Celebrate! Celebration! Whoo hoo! Yay! Yay! Bill is in DH, Bill is in DH! Yayyyyy!!!!
Anyway, hope they Fleur comes back so they will have the wedding scene! And I hope they have Shell Cottage, well I’m sure they have to! Also the actor portraying Bill looks a lot like a Weasly. Maybe not my Bill, but I’m too excited that Bill is in the movie to care!!!
