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.”

Nice that they’re having some younger adults play Death Eaters. Reflects Voldemort’s growing power in book 7.

okay but on a different note. im sorry if i sound annoying about this, but cmon DE actor dude! if you go to try out for a freaking harry potter role, dont you think you should have at least watch ALL the movies, if not duh read ALL the books? i dont get it at all. im mean, fine it still annoys me if they havent, but normal ppl are allowed not to read the hp series (theyre stupid but whatever) but somebody trying to land a role in the series?

That’s cool for him. I was actually pretty excited when I read that Chase Armitage is playing a snatcher. I hope they use Armitage’s remarkable talent as a free runner.
