Agent Confirms Harry Melling Back Again as Dudley Dursley for Deathly Hallows
August 30, 2009, 08:57 AM
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.

Oh yes! This shows they really are going to do the thing properly! Now I’m THAT much more excited. (Which, mind you, seems very hard to be!)
Funny, I’ve seen HBP some 7 times now (will probably see it again before it leaves the theatres) and even though I never really liked the beginning of it — except for the scene where Dumbledore stands in front of that Divine Magic poster ad — the more I think about it now, the more annoyed I get about the Dursleys and the whole Dumbledore-visiting-Privet-Drive thing not being in it. I’m SO glad they’re not leaving the Dursleys out this time!
