Actor Interviews

MTV has released a clip from a press junket interview with actor Rhys Ifans, who is set to portray the character of Xeno Lovegood in the “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” film, which features the actor discussing further his role in the upcoming film. Starting by relating the “great” experience he had making the film, Mr. Ifans expanded on this by saying:

“When you’re an English actor and you get the ‘Harry Potter’ call– it’s like Batman, you know? You have a phone, you have a normal phone, and then you have one that is made out of wood. That’s the ‘Potter’ people. They call you up [and] you get your wand out, you put your cloak on and off you go. It’s a real honor. It’s like getting knighted or something.”

The interview continues with the actor discussing the vastness of the Harry Potter world, as well as the “pleasantly surreal” nature of working alongside actors from previous years when struggling in the business. Quoteage:

“You just sit with all these actors you’ve starved with in the theater… sitting there dressed as wizards [and] having wand-offs. So it’s very pleasantly surreal.”
