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):

"CBGB" stars Alan Rickman as CBGB owner Hilly Kristal and the New York City club's impact on the underground music scene, highlighting artists like the Talking Heads, the Ramones and Blondie. Grint will play Cheetah Chrome of the Dead Boys, who played a prominent role during the club's rise.

Finally, Tom Felton's upcoming film, "The Apparition," released its first trailer, which can be seen here or below. The film will be released August 24th.

I’m afraid to watch the trailer because the wonderfully talented Tom Felton plays creepy people usually.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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!
