HP Cast

It has been a fairly quiet week in terms of news from the Harry Potter cast. Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick) appeared on BBC chat show, “Friday Night With Jonathan Ross” this week. The actor discussed his recently released autobiography Size Matters Not as well as fan encounters and more. UK residents can watch the interview on BBC iPlayer; Davis is interviewed at approximately 35 minutes in. Thanks to Freya for the heads up and don’t forget that Warwick Davis will be appearing on an upcoming episode of PotterCast. You can watch a video of Davis reading from his autobiography in our video galleries.

Jim Broadbent (Professor Slughorn) attended the premiere of “Another Year” at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival. A number of portrait photos for “Another Year” can be seen here in our image galleries. The film, in which Broadbent stars in a leading role, is slated for release later this year.
