Deathly Hallows Casting Updates: Teen Dumbledore Cast, Chris Rankin Returns (Updated)

DH Film

A few quick casting updates today regarding Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. First word has reached TLC that the part of Teenage Albus Dumbledore will be portrayed by young actor Toby Regbo. You can see an additional photo of him here. Also there is a rumor that a new actress by the name of Hebe Beardsall will have a minor part as Ariana Dumbledore, however this is very much unconfirmed and must firmly remain in the rumor category for now. While we believe these to be accurate, as with all the DH casting reports, these await official confirmation when and if WB releases a formal announcement.

Also, as long expected and confirmed directly to TLC and our friends Snitchseeker, we can report that yes indeed Chris Rankin will be returning to the role of wayward big head boy and beloved brother Percy Weasley for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. A reminder too that Chris will be a special guest at Azkatraz 2009, where fans can meet and speak to the actor; more information on the Harry Potter convention being held July 18-21 in San Francisco, CA here. Finally, thanks much to Emma for the heads up that an actor by the name of Chase Armitage will be playing the role of a Snatcher in Deathly Hallows.
UPDATE: SS has word on another Snatcher to add to the list: upcoming actor Adam Bradshaw.

great to see they’re bringing Percy back, although i hope he gets a bigger role that wat he did in OOTP. Also glad they’ve (maybe) cast young dd and ariana, but im not sure if they’ll have a HUGE role in the films. Also, did any1 see that Chase Armitage? he looks pretty cool! hope he has some big stunt moves or something for the film!

I went to Chase Armitage’s website and it looks like he can do a lot of stunts. I wonder if he gets to do some as a Snatcher.

Ummm… Not a big fan of the teen Dumbledore. Looks a bit feminine if you ask me.

But, you know, whatever.

i am really curious as to see who will be lily,
I hope they do a better job than they did casting James in OoTP…
i think that dan should have played james, but made him look a bit different, seeing as he is said to look exactly like james, but with green eyes, which dan doesnt have, but i dont think it honestly matters.
