Ciaran Hinds Talks Role as Aberforth in "Deathly Hallows"

Actor Interviews

Actor Ciaran Hinds, who will be portraying the character of Aberforth Dumbledore in the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" films, was interviewed by the Hill-man Morning Show which broadcasts out of WAAF in Boston earlier today.  In the interview, which can be heard here starting around the 5:15 mark, Mr. Hinds spoke very briefly about his part in the film, relating how "you might have a flash of my eyes in one of [the films]."  The actor went on to discuss his role as Aberforth by saying:

Basically I'm there to play one long scene where I explain to the kids - who are not kids anymore - about some part of the history of Albus Dumbledore's life that they weren't fully up to the mark in. But I did get, for one split second, someone put a wand in my hand and I got to flash it.
Many thanks to SS!

Loved Aberforth in DH! I just hope they keep the scenes with him the same as in the book and I’ll be happy. Makes me feel better to hear it sounds like they are definitely including the parts about mirror Sirius gave Harry although I’m not sure how they plan to cover for leaving out that part of the story in OOTP and HBP now that Sirius is dead. I’m a little worried that they will change it around and have someone totally different give the mirror to Harry in DH instead.

This is so cool! I cannot wait to watch the Deathly Hallows! So far it looks like they aren’t skipping any parts in the movie from the book. Nine more months to go! Argh!

He’s a really good actor. The scene should be great.

He looks like I thought Aberforth would except a LOT younger and no blue eyes. :(

That is so cool!! Hahaha, a flash of his eyes. Do you reckon that the eye will look enough like Gambon’s?

How are they gonna introduce the two-way mirror if it was never presented to Harry by Sirius in the movies? hmm…

He looks like he has been cast perfectly for the part. Add alittle white hair and beard, make the hair longer and there you are. Perfect.
