As part of the continuing build up to the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, actors Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) Matt Lewis (Neville Longbottom) and the Weasley Twins, James and Oliver Phelps will be appearing in person in Leicester Square, London, England this Friday June 19th. Their appearance is part of a "West End Live" Launch that is part of the ongoing MSN tour we've told you about previously. The press release states the following:

To celebrate the forthcoming release of HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE, the sixth instalment in the Harry Potter series, Warner Bros. Pictures have created a magical tour which will roll into Leicester Square, on Thursday, 18th - Sunday, 21st June. Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) will attend the West End Live launch on Friday, 19th June.

On Thursday, 18th and Friday, 19th June the tour will be running for prize winners only. On Saturday, 20th and Sunday, 21st June the tour will be run on a first come, first served basis. Everyone who walks through the Harry Potter experience will have the chance to see a selection of the original production sets, some of the iconic costumes as worn by Harry Potter and Dumbledore and props that will include an original Firebolt broomstick.

Prize winners only will have the opportunity to perform a spell "on-camera" and this will be entered into a separate competition to win the ultimate prize. One lucky winner will have an unforgettable film experience: They will win the chance to visit Leavesden Studios in England to see the Harry Potter sets and a chance to appear in one of the final Harry Potter films.


The press release also has more about the release of the film Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and the tour specifically  in London, England.

Oh man, why don’t I live in London?! * sigh *

Any news yet as to which actors will make it to Finland on their HBP promo tour? Rumour is that a celebrity premiere is in the making but no news yet as to who the guests might be…

I am feeling so lucky right now that I live where I do. Plus it’s the biggest incentive yet to go to Leicester Square this weekend. Performances from West End Shows AND the Half-Blood Prince Tour! Wow!
