The July issue of Tatler Magazine contains a new interview with actress Jessie Cave and her role as Lavender Brown in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Thanks to Jessie you can see the interview here (photo here), and recounts her final audition for the part : For the final audition I was kitted out in Hogwarts uniform and driven in a golf- buggy to the Gryffindor common room. I had to improvise in front of a room full of people with Rupert and a paper biscuit for half an hour.’  The article also notes she will be returning to the part in the final film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two. Readers will recall that Lavender fought with the DA during the Battle of Hogwarts, and fell from a balcony.

She sounds pretty quirky! I like that. I think it’s a bit awkward to say you have a crush on your coworker in a public interview, but I suppose she was half joking.

She looks perfect for the rule cant wait to see how she works with Rupert. One of the funnest senes in the book.

Oh, wow. This was interesting news. Nice to hear she’s coming back for DH. Maybe they’ll bring Colin Creevy…? Too bad the only time we see him is when he’s dead… Maybe not. :\

She didnt have a big part in DH but its good there bringing her back. I really hope they bring Wood back for DH part 2.

Who wouldn´t have a crush on Rupert? He is too sexy to be real! I don´t really remember Lavender on the last book and I absolutely think she is not necessary. They spent the entire series cutting important characters.why on earth they decided to call her back in DH when she is not even important? I haven´t heard about casting Fleur back , casting Abeforth and so on…

I think they could establish the ‘tension’ between Ron & Lavender in the RoR (before the final battle) with Lavender getting ‘too close’ to Won Won, and Hermione giving her a glare… but despite that, Hermione saves Lavender from Grayback… could be a good character moment for both of them.

Hermione will have to save Lav…

It’s a sweet interview but dudes!!!! Seriously – Jess has a crush on Rupert!!! (Understandible but…) Emma will not be impressed – or will tease him a lot!

she seems to fit the character well. i still can’t imagine anyone else with Ron though, it has to be Hermione.

It’s great that they’re still casting her for the last movie. I hate it when they change the actors from one movie to the next..

Ron reached inside his jacket and pulled out a fat gray rat, which was asleep. "His name's Scabbers and he's useless, he hardly ever wakes up."
