This week, the younger members of the Harry Potter cast have appeared in a number of magazines. Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) is to be May's cover girl for French online magazine Dirrty Glam. While the May 2010 issue has not yet been released, we have some brand new behind the scenes photos from the shoot as well as a preview of the cover itself; you can see both here on the Leaky Galleries. The Parisian magazine started in 2007, staffed entirely by 19 to 25-year-olds and led by an 18-year-old Editor in Chief.

In further magazine news, Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) is in the May issue of Nylon, as part of its Young Hollywood edition. Nylon have cut together a video on their YouTube channel in which he talks about his miniature donkeys and pigs, the hardest emotions to film and his ownership of an ice cream van. You can watch the video here on YouTube.

Our Order Partner has a scan of the interview Nylon conducted with the Ron Weasley actor, with lots of interesting tidbits including the accessories he's bought for his ice cream van and the importance of names when it comes to bands. You can find the scanned interview, as well as a photo of Grint, at The May 2010 Young Hollywood edition of Nylon is now in the shops.

Bonnie Wright, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) all appear in a video on Nylon's YouTube channel along with a number of other young Hollywood actors. The magazine puts the question "What is your favourite love song?" to the actors, reaping a wide variety of answers. The video can be seen on YouTube at this link. also has the news that Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the "Wild Target" soundtrack. The soundtrack to the film in which Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) stars alongside Bill Nighy (Rufus Scrimgeour) will be released through on the 4th of May and on the 14th of June this year. You can see a full tracklisting at Thanks to for the heads up!

Boy Rupert is making a lot of headlines in the last few weeks, but that is good. I have always felt he has been overshadowed by Emma and Dan and now he is able to get his time in the spotlight.

Oh Bonnie looks so pretty in that picture. And Rupert owns peacocks? I wonder if they are white and he nicked them from Malfoy.

Is it to much to ask for a more balenced roundup? Nothing against Rupert, but jeez….

What about the film still of Bonnie from her new film? The director even mentions the film being release in film festivals during the summer:

“And what are you currently working on?
Besides Vol. 3 of ‘The City of Abacus’ I’m finishing a short film I directed called ‘Sweat’ starring Bonnie Wright and Matthew McNulty with Daisy Lowe. It’ll be hitting the festival circuit over the summer.”

You can see the film still of Bonnie at the link as well.
