As part of the continuing build up to the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, actors Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) Matt Lewis (Neville Longbottom) and the Weasley Twins, James and Oliver Phelps will be appearing in person in Leicester Square, London, England this Friday June 19th. Their appearance is part of a “West End Live” Launch that is part of the ongoing MSN tour we’ve told you about previously. The press release states the following:

To celebrate the forthcoming release of HARRY POTTER AND THE

Bros. Pictures have created a magical tour which will roll into Leicester

On Thursday, 18th and Friday, 19th June the tour will be
running for prize winners only. On Saturday, 20th and Sunday, 21st June the
tour will be run on a first come, first served basis. Everyone who walks
through the Harry Potter experience will have the chance to see a selection
of the original production sets, some of the iconic costumes as worn by Harry
Potter and Dumbledore and props that will include an original Firebolt

Prize winners only will have the opportunity to perform a
spell “on-camera” and this will be entered into a separate competition to win
the ultimate prize. One lucky winner will have an unforgettable film
experience: They will win the chance to visit Leavesden Studios in England to
see the Harry Potter sets and a chance to appear in one of the final Harry
Potter films.

The press release also has more about the release of the film Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and the tour specifically in London, England.
