We have quite a few pieces of news regarding some of the Harry Potter actors, so let’s dive right in and see what everyone is up to!
As previously reported, Bonnie Wright attended the Cannes Film Festival to show her short film “Separate We Come, Separate We Go,” which stars David Thewlis (Remus Lupin). We now have pictures of Wright on the red carpet, as well as at the Filmmaker’s Dinner. Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory) was also in attendance at Cannes, and his red carpet pictures can be seen here.
In addition to “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman,” Rupert Grint is set to star in “CBGB,” a film which also star Alan Rickman (Severus Snape):

Avatar ImageMudblood_and_proud says: FIRST!!!!! YAY!!!! we needed a round up just so everything could be more organised, THANKS LEAKY!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: How very nice...Avatar Imagesilverkacy says: I'm afraid to watch the trailer because the wonderfully talented Tom Felton plays creepy people usually.Avatar Imagesilverkacy says: I'm afraid to watch the trailer because the wonderfully talented Tom Felton plays creepy people usually.Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: So not seeing Tom's new movie ,He is way too good an actor and will need to sleep again....Avatar ImageLa La Toadstone says: CREEPY!! Gotta love those scary movies and this looks pretty good. Tom looks very different all geekified!!Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Its been ages since Leaky did the actors round up! Yay, I'm very happy to have it back. :) Well now, I'm just going to have to see all these movies. Although I'm not sure if I am up to another scay movie, just saw The Woman In Back last night and it toally freaked me out! One thing though, Leaky, please no 'Cedric' news. Very few Potter fans like the jerk since he went on to the Movies-That-Must-Not-Be-Named.Avatar Imagehorcruxhunter7 says: Did anyone else go Apparition-Apparition get it? Get it? Or am I just weird... I agree with LL no 'Cedric' news...Please?Avatar ImageGraymayne says: I have never heard such childish nonsense! There are many Harry Potter fans who happily follow Robert Pattinson in his career as an actor simply because he is well worth watching. I am sorry to see such bad mannered behaviour on a Harry Potter site.Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Hey, the trailer looks amazing! Gotta watch it!! :DAvatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: The trailer looks cool and scary !Avatar ImageLa La Toadstone says: @Horcruxhunter7: Apparition, I got ti !!Avatar ImageLa La Toadstone says: Well you know what they say @Graymayne: All that "glitters"(get it?) is NOT gold!! That's what "comments" are for, stating your opinion, and my opinion agrees withhorcruxhunter and LunaLuver!!Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Well, I agree with Graymayne: I'm interested to know what all the actors are up to. And I can't understand why people keep going on about the Twilight films if they don't like them - nobody's forcing them to watch. In my opinion, Robert Pattinson was superb as Cedric Diggory.Avatar ImageLivi22 says: Ok, let's not get argumentative. Everyone's entitled to their personal opinion and since this is a strictly Harry Potter news site, all Harry Potter actors should be reported on, regardless of their other characters, however much we dislike them. On a brighter note, this is a great report, we should make it a regular, monthly thing, a HP actor news column! That would be really cool and it would mean that we could read all the latest news in one go!Avatar ImageFredFreakinWeasly says: I kind of want to see the movie that Tom Felton's in..... but ... it looks creepy o.0 ((as for the Robert fight I don't see what the point is, he was a Harry Potter actor before he was a twilight actor. I'm not a big fan of twilight but that's no reason to hate him or completely eject him from the Harry Potter fandom.))Avatar ImageLa La Toadstone says: I think they just meant he (robert) was monopolizing it before, he does seem to do a large amount of movies and people get sick of seeing the same face over and over and hearing the same things over and over.Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: @La La and HH7: Thank you very much!!! :) @Graymayne: It is not ''bad mannered behaviour" to have my own opinion. I think Robert Pattinson is not a good actor at all, he was decent as Cedric, but anything else I've seen him in is laughable. You can like him all you want, but everyone else doesn't have to.Avatar Imagesidnandragin says: Yay for Bonnie! She is out there and working her magic with her film and at Cannes people! She & Rob are partying and celebrating. Making the contacts that they need to get ahead! I love it! Go Bonnie! fingers crossed for the luck.
