Devon Murray to Film Deathly Hallows Scenes as Seamus Finnigan Starting in October

Murray Interviews

Actor Devon Murray (Seamus Finnigan) has given a new interview to the Evening Herald Newspaper where he briefly discusses filming for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film.  Noting that his part will take 'more than six months to film' starting in October, Mr. Murray also speaks to the safeguarding the Deathly Hallows script.  He says: "It just wasn't safe to keep it there, as there was so much hype surrounding the new storylines, so they now use a safe house for the script."  The young actor goes on to relate his feelings of being in the public eye.  Quoteage:

"I don't really get recognised here that much and Irish people are so down-to-earth anyway, they would leave you alone even if they did know you.  It's more when I go to America that they go mad for anyone connected with the movie. It was also crazy when we did a promotional tour in Japan, I must have shook hands with about two million people during that trip alone, it was mental."
Finally, Mr. Murray talks about his activities in the downtime from the Potter films, particularly breeding horses at his Offaly stud farm.  Some of those horses, the article says, several are 'contenders for the 2010 Olympics.'

I’ll be honest – can’t really decide if I ever enjoyed the casting of this character on screen. Eeek…Don’t know what it is, but it just doesn’t settle with me. I just pictured Seamus to be a bit burlier – or earthier. I don’t know…to each her own.

Aw, I really like Devon! Seamus was never really one of my favorite’s in the books, but I’ve always enjoyed him being in the films. I think Devon does an excellent job portraying him :)

So apparently they are going to show some of Hogwarts in the first of the two films, presumably Ginny, Luna, and Neville (DD’s Army) attempting to steal the sword of Gryffindor…

I am impressed that they are asking for him to devote six months to filming; that battle of Hogwarts sequence must occupy a lot of time in the eighth film. ;)
