There is a new interview online today with a young actor named James Williamson who has been cast as a Death Eater in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. While there is no name available for the follower of the Dark Lord, the Hertforshire Mecury reports "The 25-year-old, from Peartree Farm in Wood End, landed the role after going for an audition at Leavesden Studios in Watford. James is keeping tight-lipped about the name of his character but hopes to reveal it once filming starts next week. He said: “I’ll be playing a Death Eater, which is a bad wizard that follows the orders of Lord Voldemort by trying to destroy Harry Potter.”
At the moment James does not know if he will have any lines. He will find out only when he begins filming on Thursday."

The piece continues: James admits that he only watched the first few Harry Potter films but says he has been doing his research.He said: “I’ve been doing quite a lot of research and I also had to attend a boot camp, where we were taught how to do spells and some marital arts. “I’ve had to learn the lingo JK Rowling uses and it’s been difficult grasping the language and technical words she uses.”

Did this line strike anyone else as hilarious?

’ “I’ll be playing a Death Eater, which is a bad wizard that follows the orders of Lord Voldemort by trying to destroy Harry Potter.” ’
