GMTV: Mark Williams Confirms Return as Arthur Weasley for Deathly Hallows


Jul 09, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

GMTV in the UK continues their string of video interviews with cast members of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. As seen at this link ( UPDATE: Now available in our galleries) here is a rare interview with the delightful Mark Williams who plays Arthur Weasley, where he discusses falling down during the torrential rainstorm earlier this week during the UK premiere of Half-Blood Prince in London, England. He also confirms his return as the Patriarch of the Weasley family in Deathly Hallows and mentions reading the script for Part One. Jessie Cave also recounts how she landed the part of Lavender Brown in the new film.

Thanks Wendy!

She is enjoying all this so much, I can't believe the interviewer failed to spot which one was Jessie in the clip, was he not paying attention? first of all you see her really clearly talking to Ron, and when Evanna speaks, of course she has an Irish accent. I knew there was a reason I never watch GMTV, it must be the poor quality of the presenting!! Avatar ImageKC Nox says: so glad hes coming back!Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: glad to know that he will be back, i mean it only makes sense! :)
