Really! Though it’s probably a different recipe in Scotland, Swedish blood pudding is very tasty, especially with lingonberry jam

I TOTALLY want to play WoW with Mel & Frak now! I hope I see her sometime, though the chances are slim.

About Emma and that 43 people scene, I think you will find that Emma is more than likely NOT there. Her deal was, and she has said this herself, that she got to go to uni and would come back in December and April to film any further scenes she was required for. Yes, she came back for the Burberry fashion show for one day because she is the face of Burberry and it was part of her contract. In a scene this big, where she probably isn’t having a lot of face time, and the focus is most likely on Voldemort and Harry, from what has been said on Twitter, they will use her double, just as they used her double a lot in OOTP when she was studying for her final exams. They will have scheduled things in such a way that the battle scenes where they need her to have a lot of face time will be shot in December. This battle is being shot for three months, not a few days.
