Jul 31, 2009
Posted by SueTLC
We have several updates today regarding the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. First, thanks to the National Media Museum and TLC reader James we know of a brand new video interview with actor Matt Lewis, (Update: now available here in our galleries) who addresses his role as Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films. Matt also reflects on filming for Deathly Hallows, as well as weighing in on Half-Blood Prince, IMAX and much more.
Thanks much to Amanda and the crew at ThewlisRox.net who are reporting that filming for the wedding of Bill & Fleur in Deathly Hallows will take place on August 10th. This information comes from staff at the Harry Potter exhibit in Chicago, who told the fans a costume worn by actor David Thewlis in his role as Remus Lupin was needed back in England on this date to be worn for the scene in Deathly Hallows. In addition,TLC can report that filming for this scene will take place over several days in August, with Domhnall Gleeson (Bill), Clemence Posey (Fleur) Natalia Tena (Tonks), David Thewlis (Remus), Matyelock Gibbs(Muriel), James and Oliver Phelps (Gred & Forge) Mark Williams (Arthur) Julie Walters (Molly), Stanislav Ianevski (Viktor Krum) and David Ryall (Doge) due on set as well as the Trio (Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint as Harry, Hermione and Ron) who will be on hand (along with others such as Bonnie Wright as Ginny and Evanna Lynch as Luna, and possibly Rhys Ifans as Xeno although several of his scenes have already been filmed) for what is shaping up to be a fabulous wedding sequence, extra waiters, musicians, dancing and even Veelas to boot! Readers will recall of course, we saw the filming of the Trio in flight from the wedding last April on location in London, with those pics of their costumes from the wedding here. Finally,stay tuned as more Seven Potters filming is due within the next few days and weeks as well. Phew!
