Another Confirmation on the Aging Process and Cast for Epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Several times in the past, we've reported on various cast members, such as Rupert Grint (Ron), discussing the epilogue for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and the possible aging process to be used on the original cast members. Today, MTV has a new article where film producer David Heyman also weighs in on the epilogue, noting:

“We will shoot it,” producer David Heyman confirmed for MTV News. Rowling wrote a flash-forward ending to “The Deathly Hallows” that shows where the characters end up as they grow older. Heyman also indicated that the original Hogwarts actors would be filling those roles for the sequence, rather than being replaced by older lookalikes.

“Yes,” he acknowledged, nodding that aging done to the characters would use the existing cast.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is currently in production in London, England, with Part One due in theaters November of 2010, and Part Two, July of 2011.

Most of the kids are looking older and older (Not necessarily a bad thing) as the years go by. Just have the boys grow beards and I’m pretty sure they’d look like dads. Hee

Personally, I hope they stick mostly to the epilogue. If not done right, this thing can get botched. It might turn out corny and sappy and just plain weird.

I’d love to see everything post-battle of Hogwarts but I don’t want the moviemakers potentially ruining the whole movie just because of a disastrous epilogue of sorts.

Of course they should use the original actors. They don’t even have to look that much older, for goodness’ sake.

Good! That’s the only way to go really. It would just be so jarring to see the epilogue played out by a completely different cast.

That’s great, it wouldn’t look right to have different actors. It’s not like they have to age a lot – 36 isn’t old!, and many 36 year olds don’t have wrinkles. Just different hair styles and fashions would do it.
