Deathly Hallows Updates: Krum Returns, Doge is Cast and More

As production continues on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, we have a few updates today. First, as long expected, TLC can report that Stanislav Ianevski will return as Quidditch champ Viktor Krum. As noted  over the past few weeks, the Weasley wedding is due to be filmed shortly, with the Bulgarian champ due to make an appearance at the event. Also word has reached TLC from his agents that long time UK television character actor David Ryall (photo here) has been cast as Original Order of the Phoenix member and long time friend of Albus Dumbledore, Elphias Doge. Readers will recall of course, Doge writes the piece on Dumbledore for the Daily Prophet, and leads a spirited defense of the late Headmaster in conversation with Auntie Muriel (Matyelock Gibbs) at the wedding.

Finally, as filming has resumed on Deathly Hallows (with interior Malfoy Manor scenes shot last week as we heard on BBC1, 7 Potters and Wedding scenes due in the next few weeks), location shoots are still taking place. Yesterday in Golder's Green Park in London, England quick exterior filming took place, as noted by these high res photos of actress Emma Watson as Hermione Granger. Thanks JC for the pics!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part One will be released November, 2010, with DH Part Two released July, 2011.

I’m really excited about this, but I was irritated when Fleur and Bill weren’t in HBP! How are they going to introduce this….“Hey, harry, thanks for coming to the wedding of my brother and the girl in movie 4 that we haven’t seen since then!!!” I mean, come on!

Where did Leaky get this information? I hope it’s not just a rumor because none of the other sites have reported it.

@Aimee: I think they can make it work. It can be a surprise. I think the wedding would be sweeter if we had seen the Bill/Fleur relationship develop like we did in the books, but I still think it will work out fine.

awww that would be excellent Oliver Wood… he dosen’t even have to fight.. just show up in the room of requirement and clap harry on the back or something and say something along the lines of “we’re a team” or perhaps thats too corney…but something along those lines

Guess That Book

Mr. Weasley liked Harry to sit next to him at the dinner table so that he could bombard him with questions about life with Muggles, asking him to explain how things like plugs and the postal service worked.
