It’s a mother and son reunion of sorts as Fiona Shaw and Harry Melling are starring together in a new UK stage production of Bertolt Brecht’s “Mother Courage and Her Children.” The two, who appear in the Harry Potter films as Aunt Petunia and Dudley Dursley are set to open this weekend at the National Theatre production of the Mother Courage play which runs through December 8th. Sky Arts has rare video of rehearsal for the production which includes new interviews with both Fiona Shaw and Harry Melling and is now available here in our video galleries. Still photos of the two can be found here, here and here.

Avatar Imagespiritbound says: Awesome that they are mother and son again. Fiona's a great actress :DAvatar ImageNicci Weasley says: looks pretty cool...Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Thats good :)Avatar Imagemoony_lupin says: Great! Hope to see them both in Deathly Hallows! Avatar Imagealicia00 says: thats coolAvatar ImageeiVega says: Wow! I didn't realize how skinny Harry Melling was! I knew he wore a fat suit, but this is a big difference! I wonder how he's going to look like in Death Hallows. Would they be following the storyline that Petunia was forcing him to diet?Avatar ImageHBPFan says: The video was very interesting. I wish I were in London to watch it. Harry has grown so tall!! It's nice that he's working with Fiona again, even if it is a different project. And I'm also glad to hear about Sophie Stone. She was the 1st deaf student in RADA. I watched a documentary about a month ago, about how deaf people in my own country say that they're not allowed to study drama just because they're deaf. I hope all countries see this as an example and stop this senseless discrimination.Avatar Imagemuggle118 says: cuteAvatar ImageGiant Squid says: what a coincidence!!!

Fascinating that Harry and Fiona should be playing mother and son in his stage debut. I found it inspiring that R.A.D.A. was the first acting academy to accept a deaf student. I found it ironic that her clarity of speech was greater than some young film actors currently in the limelight.Avatar Imagepotterforpresident says: Harry Melling looks different... different is good, totally good. :) Has it been confirmed that Fiona Shaw's going to play Aunt Petunia? Because it would really suck if she didn't.Avatar ImageCatherine says: pretty cool! xAvatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: :)Avatar Imagegemini_black says: That's very nice!Avatar ImageBonnie Radcliffe says: That's great!! ^^ I was wondering what Harry Melling was doing...
