Devon Murray to Film Deathly Hallows Scenes as Seamus Finnigan Starting in October

Murray Interviews

Actor Devon Murray (Seamus Finnigan) has given a new interview to the Evening Herald Newspaper where he briefly discusses filming for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film.  Noting that his part will take 'more than six months to film' starting in October, Mr. Murray also speaks to the safeguarding the Deathly Hallows script.  He says: "It just wasn't safe to keep it there, as there was so much hype surrounding the new storylines, so they now use a safe house for the script."  The young actor goes on to relate his feelings of being in the public eye.  Quoteage:

"I don't really get recognised here that much and Irish people are so down-to-earth anyway, they would leave you alone even if they did know you.  It's more when I go to America that they go mad for anyone connected with the movie. It was also crazy when we did a promotional tour in Japan, I must have shook hands with about two million people during that trip alone, it was mental."
Finally, Mr. Murray talks about his activities in the downtime from the Potter films, particularly breeding horses at his Offaly stud farm.  Some of those horses, the article says, several are 'contenders for the 2010 Olympics.'

He didn t talk about filming 180 days… s just a period of filming time where he has to show up from day to day, I guess. As some of the young actors have other filming things to do (oh i HOPE they bring back Sean Biggerstaff….mmmmhhh), it s probably not that easy to bring them together. And it s not only the fighting scenes, but also the Room of Requirement…

“Just a question, but, if Emma is HALFWAY through filming, that means she exits in October?? "

Emma is going to university in September so they are getting the majority of her filming out of the way by the end of August. She has advised she will be back on set during university breaks in December (when I presume she will film her Hogwarts scenes) and March (when I presume she will film the epilogue).

Emma will only be needed for certain segments of the Battle of Hogwarts so they will obviously concentrate her scenes there into December.

Even though Hermione is very prominent in DH, there are still many scenes to be filmed which she is not needed for.

As for Devon, while he may not be prominent in the film, he will be one of the many supporting actors who will be in the background a lot of the Hogwarts scenes. Even just for the battle of Hogwarts will take a lot of time as there is a lot of different action to shoot, from many different angles. It’s possible they will also film some of the action going on at Hogwarts while the trio are away to give the film broader scope.

That’s crazy how they have to lock up the scripts, I mean, yeah it makes sense but many people have a similar version to the script, it’s called the book!
