CastWatch: Sean Biggerstaff on TV, Alice in Wonderland Trailer, More


Jul 24, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

Many readers have owled regarding cast members and their projects outside the Harry Potter films; as such here is a quick update.

First, Sean Biggerstaff will be seen here in the US this weekend on PBS in Miss Marple: ‘Why didn’t they ask Evans?’. Check your local listings for time and channel. Sean memorably portrayed Gryffindor Quidditch captain Oliver Wood in the first two Harry Potter films. Rumors abound he might be asked to return (along the scores of others already reported by TLC for DH) and while possible, this is pure speculation for the moment.

Director Tim Burton has released the trailer to his newest film “Alice Wonderland” starring his wife Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix), Alan Rickman (Snape), Timothy Spall (Wormtail) and the delightful Stephen Fry (UK HP audio book narrator). You can see the trailer at the official website here.

Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory) continues to generate news, with much ado over a recent appearance at Comic Con (photos here) to promote the second Twilight film, New Moon.

Avatar ImageMr. Brightside says: Although i really like Tim Burton and the style of this new Alice, i'm a bit confused by the fact that Disney is making the movie.

It would be lovely if Sean Biggerstaff returned, as well as Hugh Mitchell. Both have continued with their acting careers. Contrary to popular opinion, most actor's careers do not begin nor end with the Harry Potter franchise.Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: ooh i do hope Sean Biggerstaff does come back for DH that'd be so cool!Avatar Imagetaoist1 says: Why didn't they have Tim Burton direct the Harry Potter movies? He would have done an awesome job.Avatar Image3 Weasly Twin says: Alice in Wonderland looks amazing!! I can't wait to see it. It would be totally awesome if Sean came back!

Can't wait to see it!Avatar ImageAleraofRavenclaw says: The "Alice" trailer looks definitely looks like typical Burton style. I saw "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (also by Burton) and the style is somewhat similar. Also, not surprisingly, the film stars Johnny Depp and is scored by Danny Elfman, like many of Burton's films. I am a big fan of the original "Alice in Wonderland" story so I'm interested to see how they handle this. Just in case anybody cares to know, Helena Bonham Carter is playing the Red Queen (a combination of the Red Queen of "Through the Looking Glass," the sequel to "Alice in Wonderland," and the Queen of Hearts), Alan Rickman is playing the Caterpillar (who is a stop-motion character, onto which Rickman's face will be composited), Timothy Spall is playing the Bloodhound, and Stephen Fry is playing the Cheshire Cat. A little tidbit: Frances De La Tour (Madame Maxime) also appears in the film, in the role of Aunt Imogene, a character in Alice's real-life world.
