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.

That was very generous of him. I know the books will bring a good amount to the charity when they decide to have auction.

@potterversefan, why do all these Harry Potter actors/directors not read the books?

@Hermione3 I don’t know why they don’t read, maybe too busy. I hope maybe he at least listened to audio books. It was still a nice gesture to donate to charity.
