Thanks much to TLC reader LunaLovesPudding for emailing us today and letting us know about a new casting for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. During an interview on Sarah Kennedy radio program on BBC 2, actor Guy Henry announced he had landed a part in the final installment of the Harry Potter film series. He said "I've done the deal so I'm allowed to say, I'm going to be Pius Thicknesse! The new Minister of Magic in the final two Harry Potter films. Very exciting. First day of filming, July 27th!" You can see photos and learn more about Guy Henry here. Readers will recall of course that after the murder of Scrimgeour Pius Thicknesse serves as  Minister of Magic under the Imperius curse of Voldemort.

Thanks B!

I always thought of Thicknesse as a short, fat old man, lol. Sort of like a mix between Slughorn and Umbridge.

aw class he played the head of comedy at the BBC in Extras. He was the one: “You’re aware that I’m gay” The outtakes of that are genius, as always any Ricky Gervais outtakes always are
