As of today we have a new weekly feature on Leaky, which will bring you a round up of the latest happenings of the Harry Potter actors. This week, there have been a number of stories related to the Harry Potter actors in the news this week. Firstly, our Order Partner reports that Universal Pictures UK will be distributing "Cherrybomb" in the U.K. later this year. Mr. Grint plays the role of Malachy, one of two best friends fighting for the attention of the new girl in town, Michelle (played by Kimberley Nixon). The film also stars "Misfits" actor Robert Sheehan and James Nesbitt.

Secondly, earlier this week Matt Lewis (Neville Longbottom) updated his Twitter status pointing everyone in the direction of Freddie Stroma's Twitter. Mr. Stroma, who portrays Cormac McLaggen in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" can be found under the Twitter username @freddiestroma.

Thirdly, our galleries have been updated with photos from the premiere of "The Book of Eli" in Los Angeles. The film features a number of actors from the Harry Potter films, including Gary Oldman (Sirius Black) as Carnegie, Frances de la Tour (Madame Maxime) as Martha and Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore) as George. Photos from the premiere, which Gary Oldman attended, can be seen here.

Lastly, the galleries have also been updated with photos from the "Legally Blonde: The Musical" gala night. Jessie Cave (Lavender Brown), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy) and David Tennant (Barty Crouch Jr.) attended the musical's opening gala at the Savoy Theatre, London. The album can be found here in our galleries.

Update: Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) has updated her website with a preview of Ms. Watson's new fair trade fashion range in collaboration with People Tree. These photos, which originally appeared in an article in The Times last week, can be found right here in our galleries. The actress is quoted in the article as saying, "“I think young people like me are becoming increasingly aware of the humanitarian issues surrounding fast fashion and want to make good choices but there aren’t many options out there.” Ms. Watson's fashion range will be available from People Tree next month.
