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.'

horcruxalej, where did you hear that Dean isn’t going to be in the movie? Oh, no, I hope that’s wrong. I really like him. And he’s certainly more important than Seamus in DH.

He seems like a nice guy. They must be expanding some of the scenes at Hogwarts during the school year. I can’t imagine that final battle taking six months to film!

Devon is great as Seamus, he looks just as I imagined him from the book. They have a safe house for the script, like Grimmauld Place. Hehe…guess it’s needed so the script doesn’t get leaked. It’s so nice to find out about actors lives outside the screen. Who would have thought he breeds horses?

Guess That Book

The others moved in closer around Harry, gazing at the orb as he brushed it free of the clogging dust.[br]And then, from right behind them, a drawling voice said, "Very good, Potter. Now turn around, nice and slowly, and give that to me."
