The talent agency of A&J Management has updated the online resume of actor Luke Newberry to note that he will be portraying the role of Teddy Lupin in the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" film.  During filming of the Epilogue sequence last month in London, Mr. Newberry can be seen entering the set for the film.  Images from this bit of filming can be found in our galleries here.  In addition to this, word has come online that the young actor  Rohan Gotobed is said to be playing the role Young Sirius Black in the second part of the "Deathly Hallows" film.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" is set for release November 19, while "Part II" will arrive in theaters July 15, 2011.

Thanks to SS for the tip!

Hmmm…but what about young Snape and Lily? Any casting news on that? I mean young Snape is a lot more important than young Sirius.

@badger666: That’s exactly what I thought when I saw this! Although I must say I like the look of young Sirius.

They also need a young Sirius for the scene where Harry is walking to sacrifice himself and he uses the resurrection stone. In the book it says that Sirius was younger than when Harry knew him.

Okay… I take that back. I just saw the picture and that is WAY younger than what I thought they meant.

Sirius in “The Prince’s Tale”:

‘Who wants to be in Slytherin? I think I’d leave, wouldn’t you?’ James asked the boy lounging on the seats opposite him, and with a jolt, Harry realized that it was Sirius. Sirius did not smile.
‘My whole family have been in Slytherin,’ he said.
‘Blimey,’ said James, ‘and I thought you seemed all right!’
Sirius grinned.
‘Maybe I’ll break the tradition. Where are you heading, if you’ve got the choice?’
James lifted an invisible sword.
‘“Gryffindor, where dwell the brave at heart!” Like my dad.’
Snape made a small, disparaging noise. James turned on him.
‘Got a problem with that?’
‘No,’ said Snape, though his slight sneer said otherwise. ‘If you’d rather be brawny than brainy—’
‘Where’re you hoping to go, seeing as you’re neither?’ interjected Sirius.
James roared with laughter. Lily sat up, rather flushed, and looked from James to Sirius in dislike.
‘Come on, Severus, let’s find another compartment.’
“Oooooo …”
James and Sirius imitated her lofty voice; James tried to trip Snape as he passed.
‘See ya, Snivellus!’ a voice called, as the compartment door slammed. . .
And the scene dissolved once more …

J,K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (London, 2007), p. 539.

Rohan, GO TO BED! Lol! :P

But siriusly (siriusly, LOL) this is fantastic casting! Rohan looks so much like Gary Oldman, he’s perfect! And Teddy looks okay. I hope he isn’t ginger in the film, he looks alot like a Weasley.

I can absolutely see Rohan Gotobed (you’ve gotta love that name) as Young Sirius sitting on the train with the soon-to-be-Marauders and young Sevvie and Lils. I really like Luke Newberry as well but if they don’t give him turquoise hair, I’m going to sue. :)

Luna was wearing what looked like a pair of orange radishes for earrings, a fact that Parvati and Lavender seemed to have noticed, as they were both giggling and pointing at her earlobes.
