A minor update today regarding Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Widely expected and previously reported, the Dursleys will indeed seen in the final films with the agents for Harry Melling recently updating his page with word that he will reprise his role once again as Dudley Dursley for Deathly Hallows. This of course follows previous confirmation from Richard Griffiths last year that he would be back as Uncle Vernon, with Fiona Shaw also expected to return as Aunt Petunia.

Thanks to TLC reader Andrea, Matt and SS

Nice, I hope they don’t alter the Dursley scene from the book too much.

Glad to hear that. Missed the Dursley’s in HBP. Is that picture really “Dudley”? He looks really different. Like he got thinner or something.

I am glad that he is returning for the seventh film! The absence of the Dursleys would do a disservice to the final installment, in which so many past characters return for the final act.

So happy the Dursleys will be back. I really missed that scene in HBP it would have been hilarious and far better than Harry picking up Muggle girls!

i’m so happy they’re keeping that scene in! at that point i sorta forgave dudley all the horrible things that he’d done to harry over the years. well, pretty much, at least.

i would’ve been super mad if they didn’t bring back the dursleys.
i’m glad they’re keeping it all close as possible this time around with the books.
also,
i never thought of him as attractive before, but dude,
that is a flattering picture up there.

It’s funny the actor who plays dudley is named Harry!!! I’m glad he’s back, I thought the dursley scene was great in the book.

Good, he’s done a great job in the other HP movies, even if he has a smaller part
