Rhys Ifans: "Real Honor" to be in "Deathly Hallows"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."
"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."
