Warwick Davis Talks"Deathly Hallows" and "Half-Blood Prince"DH Film
Warwick Davis has given a new interview to MTV, where he discusses his role as Professor Flitwick. The actor addresses his role as the Ravenclaw Charms Professor in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, saying his character is “light relief, ” and notes “My character seems to get involved in fun stuff now,” Davis said. “I’ve had an immensely enjoyable time again. It’s a real honor to be a part of number 6.”
He also appears to be very enthusiastic about the two films of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows “I think that’s a good idea because when you try and squeeze these quite lengthy novels into a two-hour movie, a two-and a half hour film there is gonna be stuff that’s left out,” Davis enthused. “There’s so much in the last book, I think it’ll make two really good films. It’s worthy of that.” Please note: While this article does not confirm the actor will officially be back for the final films, he does seem quite positive about the role as he joked, “I very much like the scenes with Griphook,” Davis deadpanned recently when asked to name his favorite scene in “Deathly Hallows.” “I think that’s a great character to have involved more in the film.”
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released in theaters November 21, 2008, with production to begin on both ” Deathly Hallows” films in February of 2009.
Note: As some noted in the comments below, the MTV article originally contained an error regarding the casting of Griphook in Sorcerer’s Stone, and this has now since been rectified.
