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.'

Seamus is pretty level headed. I wonder what breed of horses he is raising?

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

6 months seems like a long time but if shell cottage is in part I (and that is still unclear) than the second movie will be gringotts and the battle. if you think about it that way, 6 months is just about right. I hope they mess his face up like in the book. like jared leto in fight club.

I like Devon as Seamus… and Seamus has an important role in the books: being that person close to Harry (shares his dorm with him) who represents the wizarding world-at-large (especially in OotP). When Seamus comes around, you get the feeling that he’s remorseful and that’s an important turning point in the attitude toward Harry and his place in the Wizarding World. Devon does a good job, although I don’t recall him “exploding” so much in the books.
