Keighley News reports that the British Heart Foundation has received a charitable donation of a full set of first edition Harry Potter novels from Michael Thompson, an actor set to play a Death Eater in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film.  Mr. Thompson donated the set books from his personal collection of sixty Potter novels to the British Heart Foundation after his mother was fitted with a pacemaker. The article goes on to note that Mr. Thompson role is one 'of about 20 Death Eaters' and that the actor's work on the films 'ends next month but filming will continue until next June.'

Thanks to ScarPotter for owling.

I wonder which death eater he will play? Glad he is a fan!

He needs to be careful. He’s going to give Death Eaters a good name.

It’s incredibly generous for him to donate all of his books, the complete opposite of what a death eater should be doing :)

So, what is the foundation going to do with them? Do they just keep them or do they auction them off to get money for research?

It is marvelously generous of him to donate these and I hope that the organization is able to use these for their cause.
