Several readers from Croatia have joyfully let us know the news that native actor Rade Serbedzija has been cast in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, possibly in the role of Gregorovitch, the wand maker and one time owner of the Elder Wand. Speaking in his native language during a recent press conference (seen here via YouTube), the Croatian Times reports that Rade said "I am going to play the role of a wizard who makes swords with special power. I will soon go to London to try on my costume." He also noted that "his role would be small but very interesting," with filming for the part due to take place in November.

Thanks much to Vladan, Matea, and Lucila!

Sounds great, but “swords with special powers?” What’s that about?

That’s interesting news. This means they are going to have the back story of the elder wand. You never know what they will leave out.

Ok. This is all well and good, but I still have seen NOTHING confirming the Dursley’s for Deathly Hallows. I am very upset about this. That is one of the most touching scenes. Please tell me WB did not minimize that whole encounter.

Guess That Book

Perhaps it was Harry's imagination, after all he'd heard about Slytherin, but he thought they looked like an unpleasant lot.
