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.'

Um, wouldn’t that be the 2012 Olympics? Or the 2010 Commonwealth Games? Could be both I suppose!

Wow, he’s filming for more than 6 months? And he’s not even in the book that much!

I’m kind of surprised he’ll be filming for six months. That’s a really long time on most sets.

I also was never particular fond of this casting but he doesn’t really have a very big role, so I’ve been okay with it. :-) I love Seamus in the books, though, don’t get me wrong…

I think he has done good in the other movies and I am glad that he is in the 7th movie at all!

Why would Seamus be in the movie so much unless it’s just in the background? Well, maybe I just understand film making, good thing I don’t want a future in it.

Anyway, super excited to Seamus in the movie, I’m super excited for the movie as a whole!

I enjoy Devon as Seamus. I am also glad he has the horses to fall back on. More Hogwarts action sounds good.

His part is going to take six months to film. Thats insane. I have to admit it gives me a lot of hope.

Just a question, but, if Emma is HALFWAY through filming, that means she exits in October?? Am I estimating this right? Also, as for being an actor myself – some sequences can take several days – sometimes weeks – depending on how intricate the sequence is, how many shots are needed, how many actors involved, effects, stunts, etc…so it’s possible he’s needed for so long because the parts he is in are set up to be a bit complex when shot.

It’s good that Devon has something else that he really enjoys doing.

The Great Hall was normally decorated with the winning House's colors for the Leaving Feast. Tonight, however, there were black drapes on the wall behind the teachers' table. Harry knew instantly that they were there as a mark of respect to Cedric.
