May 27, 2009, 10:58 AM
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!
That’s a great casting! He’s such a scene stealer in his few scenes in Mission Impossible 2. Perfect casting for Gregorovich, as always. Harry Potter casting professionals are the best in the industry!!
I think he means wands…
Do you know something wierd? He’s the guy in that movie EuroTrip who they all meet in the eastern europe place and he’s in love with them coz they’re american and his country is riduclously behind the times and he thinks Miami Vice is a cerrent TV show haha that’ll be funny to think about as i watch Voldemort kill him.
Ok guys..listen to me! I’m Croatian and one of the reporters of this news.
@Dolemite-its not bad translation! He actually said “I am going to play the role of a wizard who makes swords with special power” but thats because he really doesn’t know anything about Harry Potter world. and also because I think he didn’t have audition for the role,it was offered, so they actually didn’t explain him anything. But I can tell you one thing- he’s one of our best actors and I think he’ll be great as Gregorovitch. And I feel so proud that someone from our little country is in HP. as one of the biggest fans of HP in Croatia this means a world to me!
