Katherine Nicolson, who was reportedlyNews
Katherine Nicolson, who was reportedly cast as Pansy Parkinson in PS/SS (and the subsequent films) and reportedly has dated Tom Felton as well, was quoted in Australian news this week as saying it was all a hoax generated by a journalist named Brittany Dymock.
Our original Leaky Cauldron report on Nicholson's casting was in February, 2001, and we asked then for anyone with information to let us know. We got no official confirmation, and the only time we reported on someone claiming Ms Nicholson was on the set was in a report quoting a purported extra who also claimed that Ralph Fiennes was playing Lucius Malfoy, and we know that's not the case.
We have, in the past few days, googled both Brittany Dymock and the Preston Comit where the article about Nicholson's casting allegedly originally appeared, but we can't find any mention of My Dymock except in connection with the Nicholson article, and we can't find a website for the Comit via Google or Yahoo at all. If anyone has additional sources, we'd be pleased to hear of them, so send them along.
