Rumor Alert: Possible Location Shoots for Deathly Hallows Near Leavesden

With production now underway on the final installments in the Harry Potter film series, there is a curious casting rumor making the rounds today. This is Grimsby is reporting that UK actor Nick Moran apparently told people at a recent London fashion show party that he was cast in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows films. While no mention of a specific role was stated, the paper reads "Nick was overheard saying he is set to become the baddie in the next two blockbuster Harry Potter films, but complaining filming takes place on location in Watford." You can see a photo of Nick Moran here.

Please note: While we are uncertain which "baddie" he supposedly will be playing, we should point out as well the mailing address of the main studio where the films are recorded, Leavesden Studios, is also that of Watford, England. Thus, we are also uncertain what location shoots the article might be referring to, and will update with more on that when we can. TLC is attempting to obtain confirmation on all of this; until then please keep this all very much in the rumor category for now.

I was thinking Runcorn? Sort of fits the picture in my head… assuming Runcorn’s in the movie at all.

I was thinking Ted Tonks until he said baddie. I hate to say this but he is too good looking to be Amycus Carrow who is suppose to be a bit like the Hunchback of Notredame. Yaxley? What about Lovegood? He could kind of be called a baddie.

hmmm… bet he’s Grindelwald! I was going to say he’s not old enough or ugly enough to be any ‘baddie’ I could think of, but yep, Grindelwald, absolutely! I’d say that face might tempt even the strongest over to the dark side!

Good guess, cantspellathing, but a)too yummy… oops, I mean, young, and b)I hope Lovegood won’t be played as a baddie, just a frightened, desperate father. I pictured Lovegood as something along the lines of Dustin Hoffman in Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, except maybe even “one brick short”-er.

Hmmmm. How about the character with my absolute favorite name.. Pius?! I mean, he’s not completely a baddie… but after he’s imperiused by Yaxley, he’s basically Voldemort’s puppet and the key to taking control of the ministry! A very minor role… but it’s still something, right?

A Death Eater, I believe.

I really want to know who is going to play Yaxley though.

Thicknesse could be it I guess…

I was thing maybe one of the guys who gets Harry, Ron and Hermione, withr at the start in the diner or in the tents with greyback? I can’t remember who was in those scenes thought it’s been a while…I doubt it’s carrows coz i’m sure they’d already been cast.

Could he be one of the Snatchers maybe? Possibly one of the ones who try to catch Harry, Ron and Hermione at the cafe after the wedding was invaded?

Cool – but if I could ever get anything to do with HP I wouldn’t complain if it was being filmed on the moon!
