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!

It’s Boris the Blade from Snatch! He was outstanding in that role. He does seem perfect for the part.

He could be Death in the Tale of the Three Brothers. Death makes the Elder Wand, remember? They might play out the scene as Hermione reads it.
