The Belfast Telegraph has an article online featuring actor Domhnall Gleeson, who is set to portray the character of Bill Weasley in the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" films, discussing the role of his father in an independent feature produced by the young filmmaker.  His father, Brendan Gleeson, has appeared in the Harry Potter films as Mad-Eye Moody, and was also cast in this family feature called "Noreen."  In the article Domhnall Gleeson briefly discusses working on the Harry Potter films, saying,  "Being an actor in Harry Potter is a different experience. It's fantastic at the same time but there are so many extras and it's just so huge, you're not in control of anything."  The report goes on to note the full family affair of the film, with his younger brother Brian is also part of the production.  "Noreen" is slated to premiere in Tullamore Omniplex in the spring.

hey, i’m first to comment. haven’t done that in a while… what i’ve nocticed so far is that the cast and crew are being extremely vague as to what they’re exactly doing. i believe they’re being more secretive with these last two than the rest. when can we see a actual trailer for dh part 1? my guess is march/april.

I don’t think the photograph on this page is on Domnhall as he is only 26 according to the Belfast Telegraph article and looks quite a lot different in his publicity photos. Maybe the photo here is of Brandon Gleeson?

Well, he certainly does resemble the Bill I had in my head whilst reading.

Isn’t it cool how he’s related to Brendan, and in HBP it says that Bill looked like Mad-Eye after he’d been attacked by Greyback. ;o)

I’m really looking forward to seeing how he plays Bill. The clip of him dancing with Fleur looked great. It is quite cool that he gets to work with his father, I hope they both enjoy the opportunity.

I agree, he does look like he would fit in the Weasley family very nicely! But he looks younger than Fred and George!

Guess That Book

...Cho Chang, was the only girl on their team. She was shorter than Harry by about a head, and Harry couldn't help noticing, nervous as he was, that she was extremely pretty. She smiled at Harry as the teams faced each other behind their captains, and he
