Bill Nighy and Shredding the Secrets of the Ministry of Magic

The always engaging Bill Nighy has given a new interview where he joked about the measures surrounding the script for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In humorous remarks, Bill Nighy, who will be portraying Ministry of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour said "that he had to shred his scripts to be on the safe side. "They kill you, if you leave your script lying around or leave it on the bus, you're dead," he said, laughing."You have to sign a confidentiality (agreement) and stuff like that which is perfectly understandable. So if I tell you any more, they'll come round my house."

As previously reported here on Leaky, Bill Nighy has already filmed scenes for Deathly Hallows, and remarked on his co-stars including actor Dan Radcliffe (Harry): "It was very sweet, very nice to work with him, and with Emma and Rupert, and with David Yates as this is my fourth time working with him," he added at the Los Angeles premiere of his latest film, Astro Boy. "It's great. I thought I was going to be the only British actor of a certain age not to be in Harry Potter and it turned out not to be true so it's kind of cool."

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows continues production in England, with Part One due in theaters next year on November 19, 2010.

Interesting but sadly the movies must come to an end, and I agree also with ginevrapotter07.

He doesn’t fit my image of Rufus, but I am a fan of Bill Nighy and his work so I am looking forward to seeing him as Rufus. I know he will do a great job.

I like Bill Nighy but I wish they would give him a red wig or something to actually make him look like Rufus Scrimgour.

Glad to know WB are keeping a tight grip on the script. I think Bill Nighy will make a good Scrimgeour.
